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
Add to wax at 185° F and stir to dissolve.

For use in candles only. Not approved for use in bath and body products.

Frosting and the know it all comments below
Keeping it real 2022-04-24

So- for the know it alls that are slamming other commenters on here asking IF this helps with frosting:

1) candle science is recommending this bag for frosting issues on the site IF the frosting issue is due to lighting

2) ALSO TO THE KNOW IT ALLS Frosting is normal in candles!!!!! If you know anything about vegetable or soy based candles, frosting occurs because the wax is attempting to turn back to its original state- also, you can be pouring at a perfect temp but if you are in an area with colder climate or your home is colder than this will occur. CANDLE MAKERS EVERYWHERE PLEASE DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOU NEED TO GO INTO DEBT WITH YOUR HEATING BILL WITH THIS STUCK UP NON SENSE BELOW!!! You can educate all of your customers about this and let them know frosting is actually a unique way to tell that your candle is 100% so and no additives or garbage that the other candle makers below are most likely adding to their product. No one cares about frosting 😂

Works well to prevent yellowing

We use this in all of our candles, especially those that we wholesale that are exposed to UV light on a regular basis. Works great. Leaving a review to remind others that this is NOT to help prevent frosting and also not to prevent "browning" from vanillin. Helps prevent the yellowing from UV light.

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.
