Ecosoya CB Advanced Soy Wax
EcoSoya CB-Advanced Soy is made from pure 100% soybeans and carefully selected botanical oils. Candles made with CB-Advanced Soy resist frosting, have a smooth top surface and an even smooth burn pool with consistent color retention. Ships well in all climates.

- Heat soy wax to 185 F (so fragrance oil fully dissolves)
- Had high hopes
I'm trying to transition from parasoy blend into soy candles and this was my first go at soy. Candles looked amazing with wonderfully smooth tops and the cold throw was pretty good! I tried every wick I had (both ECO's and HTP) and all of them drowned sadly in the wax. Some would make a decent melt pool but then drown and then the larger wicks would tunnel and drown. The hot throw was also very poor. I'm hoping for more success with 464.
- Great Wax
I'm very pleased with this wax. I rate it at about 4.5 stars. Currently testing this and GW 464. I am making (and giving away) more candles out of this wax because it produces a very pretty candle, there is no adhesion, and it leaves minimal frosting on top. While the scent throw is lighter than the 464, I still really like the CB Advanced. I am getting great results using Candle Science's 3 leaf fragrance oils like Pomegranate and Very Vanilla. Just be selective of what oils you choose with this wax and load it at it's max load (9%). I will be ordering 50 lbs at a time soon! :)
- Terrible Wax
I have been using Ecosoya Cb Advanced for two years now, never have i had the problems i had this with batch. Very little scent throw, makes candles greasy, drowns the wicks, i even went size up in wicks for this wax, still no luck. I will be purchasing this wax from my original supplier.
- Pretty Candles
No frosting, mottling, or wells, very pleased. :)
- Wet spots every time
I have been using 464 and was having a bit of a time with frosting. I saw where Ecosoya Advanced was very resistant to wet spots, but I have them every time. I went to the manufacture site to verify melt and pour temp and still no luck. I use 8 ounce glass containers that are not preheated per manufacture directions. I have also tried preheating the containers and after a day, have the same results. The candles are brighter white than the 464, but the wet spots bug me.
- I love this wax
I have used 444 and 464 with alot of trouble with frosting and cratering. This wax makes really pretty candles with no sacrifice with fragrance throw. The best fragrances so far have been Apple Harvest,Very Vanilla,Blueberry Cobbler, Moon Lake Musk and Mango Tangerine. I also use a Presto Deep Fryer for heating my wax. It has been converted by drilling a hole and placing a pour spout with open/close lever.(i found the directions on another website-just Google around. you will find it.) Always use a candy thermometer for the needed 185 degree. Then turn it off and wait for the proper pour temp for your wax. Thanks Candle Science for such good service and products. I plan to visit someday!
- block or chips
ive never had any trouble with this wax, just wondering if it is shipped in a block or chips
- Pouring Temps
I am using CB Advanced and I do love the wax, I am having trouble getting the pour temp on glass jars to <br /> look nice. <br /> Does anyone have any advice for me?<br />
- Great wax for beautiful candles!
CB Advanced is easy to work with and makes beautiful candle with little to no frosting. I gave it four stars because not all scents that are rated strong in soy work well with this wax. It is true that some scents have not throw, but the ones that do are heavenly. Here are some sample scents that I have had luck with Sex On the Beach, Oakmoss & Amber, Apple Harvest, Sunwashed Linen, and Black Raspberry Vanilla just to name a few.
- Great Wax
I love this wax, but gave it a four because, while it makes perfect looking candles each and every time, it is a bit of a pain to constantly test scents to see if they will work in this version of EcoSoya wax. Not all scents will throw, even if it is a fragrance that works in other soy wax.
- No scent throw
I am really new at making candles, and I am only making them as a hobby. Trial and error and a few mistakes I am getting better at it - the imperfect ones I give to family. I have only purchased the EcosoyCB advanced and EcosoyPB for pillars and I love the creamy texture, burns beautifully - but the hot scent throw for this is just not what I expected. Although, I am amazed how soy wax really does not leave the nasty black oily soot. I read reviews about the GB 464 and I will try that next for a better scent throw.
- no scent throw
Makes beautiful, smooth candles in one pour. I was so excited until I burned one and noticed no scent throw. I wish it could have won me over but it did not deliver. Scent is important if you care about repeat customers.
- Looks great but......
I think that this wax is great looking for the candles. It is easy to use and pours nicely. The only problem I have with it is the scent throw is just not there compared to the GB464. I wanted to try this in order to get the nice looking candles that I hear everyone tell about. I will be going back to the GB464 from now on. My customers want the fragrance more than the pretty look.
- OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!10 STAR***********************
so happy this is the best wax ever #1 in my candle list
The suggested size wicks drown in this wax???
Beautiful, creamy, smooth candles! With a little experimenting, I was able to get wonderful cold and hot throw with this wax and it burns so cleanly : )
- This wax is totally on point!
This wax is the best! I absolutely love the creamy texture, no frosting whatsoever. Like everybody else, I found this wax very easy to work with because it cools and sets much slower than any other wax I’ve used. I bought the Golden Brands 464 soy wax because it was a best seller and a little less in price, but I couldn’t get it to work well in my candles. I thought I would have to give up and settle for a soy/paraffin blend wax, but then I decided to try this one, and oh my goodness. If you want quality candles, this is the brand you should get.
- Making this permanent!
I was a EcoSoya 135 user, received this and LOVE it! Smooth melting, Perfect top surface and colors came out great too! No need for the heat gun with this product! SOLD!
- Great Product!(:
I started out by ordering the Golden Brands 464 Soy Wax, it was the cheapest and the old saying "you get what you pay for" deffinetly was true. After pouring about 6 candles i let them sit overnight to see how they would turn out. Everyone of them caved in the middle. When i poured my candles for this wax only one out of 8 caved in. But it was a quick fix, i saved some of the wax from the first pours, i heated it up and poured it on the top of the candle. It dryed quick and the candle was perfect. I highly recommend paying a little more for this product and getting good quality candles.
- Awesome Wax!
This is such a GREAT wax, no frosting and easy to work with. I always used the GB 464 but this is by far so much better, and is reasonably priced.. Thanks CS for a great wax!!
