I have not used this product yet but, I was wondering if it would help prevent the the wax from discoloring when burned with a wooden wick. Candle Science People???
Ready to Order?
UV inhibitor is used to help prevent the premature fading of colored candles exposed to ultraviolet or "UV" light. This additive will also protect white candles from yellowing after prolonged exposure to light.
Typical usage is 1/4 to 1/2 percent per pound of wax.
1/4 percent = 1 gram or 1/2 teaspoon
1/2 percent = 2 grams or 1 teaspoon
For use in candles only. Not approved for use in bath and body products.
UV enhibitor has greatly helped our candles stay whiter with certain fragrance oils
Had to give this a rating, just to get it posted so I gave it one start just to get it on here.
I see a lot of people commenting that this is not a frosting inhibitor. Maybe so, but the support page on here states that this can be used to help prevent frosting due to light having that effect on candles. I haven't tried it yet, but I did just want to mention that the support page does state that this helps with frosting. It's under the question "How can I lessen the effect of frosting in my soy candle's?"
I am only comenting now to hopefully keep people from thinking this is a frosting inhibitor. So many
have posted this and yet some people still think it is supposed to inhibit frosting...for goodness sake,
the title is UV INHIBITOR and is designed to keep candles from yellowing or losing color over time.
This means you need to readjust your pour temp. You are pouring too hot. Soy wax will frost to a point because it is just the nature of the wax. You can easily remelt the candle and it should fix the issue. You need to also realize that this product isn’t for frosting. It is to prevent yellowing and loss of color in colored candles.
First off, to those who have candles that are frosting after using this product - this is a UV Inhibitor, not a frosting inhibitor.
After using this product for over 2 years, my feelings are it's does what it's designed to do. I've been fortunate that my candles sell rather quickly and I've not had problems with my inventory yellowing. I have noticed that I may need to increase the amount I use as I've had one candle (yes only one) that yellowed which I had in stock for over a year. The candle was not colored and poured into a colored glass container using GB 464 wax. Again, my experience is the product does what it's supposed to do.
Great product! Does exactly what it is suppose to, minimizes fading and discoloration of candles over time.
I was contemplating on adding an UV Inhibitor to my candles because Frosting. I truly hope that CandleScience is listening to their customers. Purchasing frosting glasses is a great idea. I may look into it as well. Because I have not tried it for myself, I'll give it a 2 star based on customer review.
So addendum to my last post: I woke up this morning and my jars still frosted! What a waste of money! Do candle science try these things out to make sure they work before accepting people's hard earned money? Well time to order frosted jars from another carrier because my small business is doing good I don't need a little frost to loose my customers !!!
Ok I used the UV inhibitor tonight because I was having trouble with my candles frosting!!! Can't wait until tomorrow morning to see the outcome! Will come back to rate this priduct
