With the re-formulation of EcoSoya waxes, we have been busy testing alternates.
Soy wax is made from pure soybeans, from wide fields of soya bean crops. Soy wax is totally natural, being refined to different recipes for both container candles and pillar candles for a great finish and smooth surface. Soy wax is delivered in pastille or flake form, in a soft milky white.
This pure soy wax can tend to frost, spot and pull away from the container walls. HOWEVER we have developed Container Maker to combat these issues.
With the addition of 40ml Container Maker to every kg, GW464 becomes a very reliable candle wax. It will tolerate 60-80ml candle fragrance with good scent throw. Pour between 70-75C, adding 40ml container maker for smooth surface, minimal frosting and great glass adhesion.
C3 is another great alternative for serious candle makers. It forms a smooth, shiny surface and adheres to walls well wehn poured between 60-70C. Glass adhesion can be improved by adding 20-40ml Container Maker to every kg.
Fusion has been especially formulated for candle makers who are wanting a strong scent throw or strong colours in their candles.
Fusion is a blend of soy wax with paraffin. To improve reliability for glass adhesion, we recommend you try using 10-20ml Container Maker to every kg. This wax has best results when poured between 60-70C.
Beeswax is a superb wax, straight from the hive! Simply filtered and cleaned. It is generally used as a pillar candle wax, but gorgeous in glass too. We would recommend the addition of either or both soy wax and/or container-maker to get the consistency you require.
