First, this wax pours and drys beautifully. Even after burning, drys great, perfectly smooth tops. It has very smooth tops, I poured at 120 and it was perfect. I have made a few different scents with this wax and like others have said, the bad is there is very little hot throw. I won't blame it on the wax entirely as I know other people get it to work great. That was not me. Some scents were better than others so I think this wax is a little more temperamental than others. If you go to ngielements.com, it explains this also. Good luck!

I LOVE to work with this wax...NO frosting and it throws every bit as much as 464. Trust me I have been working with candles now for four years and was stumped at what to do with the frosting as candle wax kept telling me 464 is the best wax. It just isn't. I have also found faults in their wick determination. With 8oz tins and 16oz masons I use a #10 Perfect burn

I was using GB464 but never was able to get consistent results of good looking candles like I do with the CB Advanced. Candles come out PERFECT pretty much every single time. Only complaint is that the hot and cold throw is pretty poor in comparison to the GB464. It's OK, but I can't really smell it across the room like I can the 464 wax candles. Colors also fade a lot quicker with this wax when sitting near sunlight.

I first started making soy candles about a year ago. I started off with this wax and it was beautiful! Smooth, frost-free, flat tops every time, perfect burn. Sometime this year, my candles all began to have issues with frosting and dipping that have only gotten worse. I've not changed anything in regards to my candle making process. I still use this wax because it's still way better than the 464 and 444 I tried. I don't know if I've gotten contaminated batches or if they've changed the wax but it takes basically double the work to get a mediocre looking candle as it did last year to achieve a perfect candle. All of that aside, this is still my favorite wax to use in my square mason jars! It's worth the extra work I guess...

I purchased this wax based on the reviews and I am very unhappy. It burns really nice and clean however, there is no scent throw. It also cannot hold 1.25 oz. of fragrance. Anything other 1 oz. and the candle is sweating. I then did a 5/50 combination with 4630 and still no luck.

Firstly, let me say I am new to candle making. I bought this wax because it says it is supposed to frost less than the normal soy wax. I did pour this wax and it was pretty successful, however I am experiencing some frosting issues which can easily be remedied with a heat gun or hair dryer. I was surprised at getting frosting issues because for this wax it says you compromise hot throw in order to enhance the appearance of your candle, which I still had problems with. Overall, I am happy with the wax, the hot throw, so far, is good. I haven't tried any other waxes to compare. I'm thinking maybe the frosting issues I am experiencing would be a lot worse with a different soy wax.

I LOVED the look of this wax,however like many others have said, the hot throw is not very strong.Any tips on how to make the candles smell stronger?I've read that you should add 1 FL oz of fragrance er LB,but this like allot of fragrance to me.

This wax creates beautiful clean candles with a consistent burn and the wax is wonderful for skin application. I prefer non scented or dyed candles in lovely containers and this wax is perfect. It melts and pours very easily, it repairs seamlessly if an air bubble pulls near the wick. I will only buy this pure, clean, and happily American grown soy wax, I have tried many and this is the most consistent and loveliest! Enjoy!

I'm new to making candles and purchased the Ecosoya wax. The tops look great, a smooth finish. My greatest challenge is wet spots - I clean each container, heat each container with a hair dryer, then wrap each candle in a towel and put it in a small room and close the door. Half of my candles have a huge wet spot on them and many of them don't smell strong. I'm adding fragrance at 185, then putting in heated containers at 160 or a tad warmer. Fragrance is 1 ounce of scent to 12 ounces of wax. Any tips, please email JessicaLKole@gmail.com. Trying the Golden 464 to see if there is a better scent throw.

I agree with other reviews that this wax looks much better than others as far as sinkholes and frosting. I don't even have CT/HT issues when I use oils with high throw ratings. However, for some reason when I use fragrance oil with this wax, the tops become permanently discolored and turn brownish yellow after I burn them for an hour. I don't use any dyes and when I use the same exact formula but leave out fragrance oil, the candles look perfectly white even after burning. I'd like to use fragrance oil but the wax discoloration after burning is pretty ugly. Oddly enough, no one seems to complain about this. Any ideas why this may be happening?

I love the look this wax gives but was having issues with the scents that I also ordered from this site...I started using fragrances that I ordered from another supplier & also noticed that when I added fragrance at 145 temp instead of 185 I could smell the candle throughout the room...I'm definitely still experimenting with hot scent throw & temps but will keep using this wax until I get it down better

I LOVE this wax. Very easy, no frosting, excellent hot/cold throw. I do use 2 oz. f.o. per lb. of wax though and Vybar 260 in my container candles and clamshells. This wax does work in clamshells but it is soft. My customers love the clamshells. It does not stick in the clamshell containers and does release well! You can also put them in freezer if they are too soft for about 10 to 15 minutes to help with release if you live in extremely hot climates! Single Tarts using metal floater molds also work well, you do have to freeze them for 5 minutes to release them to package up though. My candles come out great! I use the square mason jars. I use HTP 104 Wicks or Eco 12 Wicks! LX22 or 26 Wicks also works very well in the Mason Jars! Double wicking is easier too. I use Double Wicks HTP 104 in my Lucinda and Apothecary Jars or LX22 Double Wicks! I hope this review helps everyone out! You can also email me at email@example.com or facebook me at www.facebook.com/candlelady42 if you have questions about candles or candle making! I love Candle Science!

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.

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! :)

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.

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 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!

Does anyone have any advice for me?
Submitted on 2012-04-18 Annie
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 Iâ€™ve used. I bought the Golden Brands 464 soy wax because it was a best seller and a little less in price, but I couldnâ€™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.

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!

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.
