Product Update: April 8, 2020

Due to sustainability concerns about Cargill's sourcing practices, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Cargill waxes from our product line. The Cargill NatureWax C-3 Soy Wax will be discontinued once current stock is sold out. For more information click here.

Cargill NatureWax C-3 Soy Wax is a container wax that resists frosting and wet spots. This 100% soy wax has great glass adhesion and an opaque, creamy finish. C-3 has excellent scent throw and color retention. The higher melt point allows this wax to ship well in all climates.

Best Wax!

Best Wax ever, I used this to launch my first Candle making business and it has never let me down. I can't believe this is discontinued my customer's love it. What would you suggest as an alternate wax in comparison to this one?

Hi there! While not exactly the same, Golden Brands 464 would be an excellent alternative natural container wax option. This wax contains a soy-based additive to reduce frosting and improve jar adhesion and scent throw, making it a great choice for any candle maker!

Sad to see this one go for Sure!

Sad to see this wax go, but I do have to say CS did not have this wax for all that long. Only a little over 7 months they had this product. I have read the post that CS posted reguarding there reasons, why they choose to get rid of this soy wax. I know they had a decision to make, with that said, I will continue to get this C3 wax that enjoy using from my main supplier who I have been getting it from for over 5 years. I found it convenient when I would order my Jars etc, and had a very large order with CS, I would order my C3 wax as well, to get the 100 weight discount. Since I have been a customer with CS I have seen them change alot of products that were working just fine. I understand making a Fragrances Phalate Free and such. But when CS changes the notes completely and the new product/products are not even close in compare makes it hard on all of us!!

Why would Candle Science stop selling one of the best candle waxes?

C3 in my opinion is the best most consistent wax out there. Superior scent throw and amazing adhesion. I will be getting my wax and oils from Fillmore Container.
Beside discontinuing this, and changing superior oils. Many candle companies were fine with the other fragrance formulations for their customers. The new formulas don’t come close to previous scents, for example the old gardenia which was the best out there replaced by a frangipani scent that is weak.

Extremely Saddened

I have been using gb464 for the past 2 years and because of the inconsistency with it, I decided to try C3-Soy. My experience thus far with my first batch of this wax has been great. I followed the recommendations from Candle Science and I had little to no sink holes, no frosting and my CT/HT has been awesome so I am extremely sad to see this wax go. It looks like I will have to switch to coconut wax. I hear nothing but great things about it. From a business standpoint, the cost involved in switching waxes can get costly. I just want to use a wax that is consistent.
