The Ecosoya CB Advanced was the best wax! I give it 4 1/2 Stars. The other waxes are so BAD! Flakey, Clumpy, uneven... What a waste of money. PLEASE make the Ecosoya Advanced Wax again. It appears everyone in the know is asking for it. I hope consumer demand (or begging) will make a difference. I know I would buy more if it were available. Any reason why the company stopped making it? I don't understand. If it was to get rid of the other crap, I won't but it again. It truly affects my end product. I'd like to be able to say, I'm using Ecosoya CB Advanced again. I hope all these reviews mean something to the makers of Ecosoya. Thank you, I'll be waiting.

I've already started the transition to 444 & 464. My cases are available if someone needs them. You can contact me on Facebook. ☺

This has been my favorite wax to use for my soy candles. It's very easy to use, with very little issues. I am now using GB464 and absolutely hate it, I can't wait to get something similar to this.

Owner

So where is the EcoSoya 110?? I believe CS relayed the end of March.
I'm using the 464 to get by but it's horrible frankly. I want my Ecosoya back!
Thank you :)

Ready for the new version!

We loved this wax for our business and we are extremely sad it's gone. Things happen and we understand it's not your fault or their fault. We used this wax for candles and lip balms and the consistency was so smooth. Great hot and cold throw. I read recently that it may be June before the new one is released. I have a very limited supply left for our lip balms and I hope it'll last. I ordered GB464 for our candles and will be trying that out today. I'm nervous as this is the only brand we've used for the last 4 years. Hope it works until June. Thank you CandleScience and we will continue to be CandleScientists with you!

We loved this wax. Only had a few minor problems with it (wet spots, some cracking/sinkhole around the wick) but otherwise a great wax. Any projections on when the new waxes are going to be available? I've had to completely hault my production & obviously it's not great for business

Please hurry eco people

I absolutely loved this wax and so did my costomers. I cannot find a replacement that works as well as ecosoya!! Please hurry!!

When are the new waxes coming out?

Loved almost everything about this wax. It was easy to work with, and my candles looked perfect the only downside was that its hot and cold throw was weak, so I'm happy that they are coming out with a new one. How soon will the new one be available? As of now I can't seem to find a good replacement. Hope the new one comes out soon.

Crystal, it's not Candlescience's fault.

NGI has stopped producing the wax and are coming out with a new line of Ecosoya waxes. They're going to be similar, but with better scent throw and better color retention. They've said that the EcoSoya 110 will be a perfect replacement for this one. But it doesn't matter where you buy your wax, you're not going to be able to get your hands on this one, once it sells out.

Where is the Ecosoya CB Advanced???

This is my absolute favorite wax!! I do not want a replacement, I would like the wax that works well for me. This just may get me to start buying somewhere else! So sad :(

*CRIES* What happened to my favorite wax!!? :(

Sad to see this was discontinued, it was one of my favorite waxes to work with. Great in tins and exceptional in my jars (no frosting, nice smooth, clean finished tops). Sigh.....I'll await the replacement hoping it's as good, if not better.

wax is perfect!!

Remember the curing time for our candles to have an optimal odor. Not only is it sufficient to manufacture and let cool. Curing time is between 1 week and 2 weeks.

Zero scent throw

I bought only Candle Science FO with a good soy rating. Added 1oz fragrance(by weight) at 180 degrees. Stirred. Poured when cloudy and still nothing. So tired of wasting wax and expensive FO for candles that do not smell! I really wish I could get a refund on this wax.

Just what I was looking for!

I had been using GB444 but had so many issues with sinkholes and frosting I was spending so much effort and time fixing and scraping them. I got some of this wax and holy cow, my first candle looked better than hundreds of others I'd made with 444. Not one tiny bubbble or flaw. Literally flawless! I did everything the same as the 444 but it looks 100 times better!

Heated to 180, added scent and dye, preheated my jars and wrapped them in a sock (it's cold in my house) and poured at 145z amazing results and amazing hot and cold throw!!! Used 10% FO.

This is the best wax for container candles

I have used other waxes and tested and tried until perfection. This is the only wax I buy now for over a year. It has a great cold and hot throw. I do notice the fragrance can sometimes change the color of the wax when burned,but I just tell my customers this is color changing wax. Nag Champa I make in darker colors because lighter colors turn blue. I heat to 175, use dye color chips for coloring, and add fragrance oil 12% soon as I take the wax off the burner. I stir multiple times until the was cools to around 134, then pour. I use 16 oz mason jars with #10 wick and all is beautiful. This is truly the best ONE POUR wax out there.

I love this wax!!

I'm not the biggest candlemaker - I only do it at home for fun, and for friends and family as gifts. I was using the 464, and since I don't seem to have the right kitchen or utensils, every symptom of a not-so-well-made candle applied; frosting, poor glass adhesion.

This wax, and the right pourer I got (the small one), makes a hobbyist very happy. The tops were so smooth, and these candles smell amazing.

Thanks CS!

MS

I have been making soy candles for the past 5+ years. I did my homework and I chose the Eco Soya CB Advanced from the start so I can say that I never had a problem with foam. I chose it because it is a natural USA made product that claimed no foaming and a good scent throw. I also chose the Eco Soya CB Advanced because I was mainly interested is making skin safe candles that can also be used as a skin moisturizer for your hands and feet, so I mostly purchase ONLY SKIN SAFE fragrances. I also make it a point to try not to purchase any fragrances that contain Phthalates, which have shown to not be safe on your skin. I own many fragrances, but out of them all, I only have about 5% that have Phthalates in them, and I think that those scents were purchased by accident.
I also make reed diffusers.and I always make sure that the fragrances that I choose are both skin safe and phthalate free. This is so I can use my fragrances for both candles, reed diffusers, and did I mention that I also make bath salts and body butters? Anyway, SKIN SAFE is the way to go if you choose to use your fragrances on the skin. Thank you Candle Science for offering such a large quantity of skin safe, phthalate free scents. I almost exclusively purchase all my scents from your company. You're the greatest!

What Changed?

Did you change something with this wax? My candles are coming out shiny on top and not smooth and matte finish like in the past. I have had complaints from a handful of customers that their candles are either not staying lit or they are tunneling. I am using the same wicks as always. I'm confused??

I've been using this wax for a year now. I know a lot of people say the scent throw is weak, but in my experience the other waxes aren't much better than this one and this one doesn't frost ugly like the others do. I do have to go in with a heat gun and stick a toothpick down the side of the wick to let extra air out so the wick doesn't drown and in the future I'll probably change waxes because of that. But as of right now this wax works for me!

Great! so far..

First impression was this wax sets very nicely. Smooth & I get less sink holes than the nature's soy I was using. Though, I feel like it takes a little longer to set making it more time consuming when it comes to layering. I have not experienced any frosting or problems with glass adhesion. As for the scent I can smell the fragrance. I add 3 teaspoons for every 8oz add when it is cooler. So far really happy with it! :)

interesting

I have been using this wax for a while now. I use the same method each time. I use eco cb advanced wax, eco 4 wick in a 16 oz mason jar. I melt to 175, add the fragrance at 170 (2 oz per pound). Cool to 134-138, single pour. Then leave alone for 24 hours. After the first 24 hours I cover with a lid and move to a room to cure for 6-7 days. this time I made the wax the same way and used Seas Mist along with a Fresh mint fragrance in a aqua blue candle. The candle would not stay lit, even pouring the melted wax off still the candle would not stay lit. The two customers I made those for have returned them. not sure if it is the wick or the wax.

great wax favorite update

I meant to give 5 starts on my last review.

great wax favorite

I have been using this now for a couple of weeks as long as i use 12% fragrance per pound I get great results. My customers love it. I love it because it is one pour and so easy now. I learned on lesson. Do NOT pour under 100 degrees that causes dipping in the middle and cracks around the wick along with separation from the glass.
I use the recommended wicks 16 oz mason jar and eco 4 wick, 12% fragrance witch is 4 oz per pound of wax, melt to 175, take off the burner add the fragrance at 175, cool to 134-138 and pour. Also I live in Arizona so i leave the AC off and the fans off so the room stays at 75 degrees or warmer and put the jars on a wire cooling rack... leave for 24 hours then cut the wick and put on a lid. Then move to a different room (my bedroom is warmer than the rest of my place) Allow to cure for 6-7 days. Then they are ready to sell. this works every time. I tried other wicks and other temps but this is the one method that works.

Update

This wax is awesome. Smooth top and one pour. I melted at 175, added 12% fragrance at 175. Cooled to 134. Stirred multiple times before pouring at 134. Used 16 oz mason jars and eco wick #10. Then cured for 6 days. Burn teat was awesome. Frangrance throw was amazing. I did two differnt candles one was ocean breeze came out perfect. The secind one was nag champa in pale yellow. This burn test fragrance was amazing but candle turned blue looked cool.

Update to post

My friend test the candle the results are: i colored the one candle pale pink fragranced with nag champa.... I used this wax and color added was at 6%. This candle turned blue and the fragrance was almost not detectable. The second candle i colored aqua blue and added ocean mist fragrance at 6%. This candle had no fragrance scent during burning. With both of these i used a 12 oz jar and a eco #16 wick. ( the melt was at 155, fragrance add was at 135 and the pour was at 115) 48 hours of curing before burn.

I made a new batch using 12% fragrance light yellow coloring and a #10 eco wick and the naga champa fragrance. The second candle i used 12% fragrance, a #10 eco wick and and a 16 oz jar and aqua blue coloring. The met was t 155 the fragrance add was at 135, and pour was at 111. This time cure will be 4-5 days.
This wax requires one pour and has a smooth top when finished.... doing another burn test.

I will post another update after the burn test is done in a few days

First time testing

Love it so far.
I purchased this wax and received it yesterday. I have used 444 which had to frosting and holes that would need to be fixed.... too much extra work. So I switched to 464 the same issue but not as bad. Both of those have great fragrance hot and cold throws.
I made this wax last night and it only took one pour, set up faster and looked amazing. The tops were so smooth all I had to do was cut the wick and it was done. The candle smells awesome as well. The fragrance was great during making and after hardening. I have given this to a fried to burn to see if she can tell if it the fragrance is there while burning. I will repost after her response to that.
I love this so far... so much easier to work with.

Good & Bad

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

Great looking candles, scent throw OK

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.

Suddenly having more problems?

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 have used this wax for 3 years in my candles busines. No issues of any kind for tin container candles. use 1.5 oz. / pound, great scent throw hot or cold. customers love my candles!!

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.

Love the wax but frosting a bit which can be fixed

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.

Any tips?

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.

Best on the Market

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!

Help with Wet Spots and Scent Throw

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

Best Wax Ever

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 mony3214@yahoo.com or facebook me at www.facebook.com/candlelady42 if you have questions about candles or candle making! I love Candle Science!

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
look nice.
Does anyone have any advice for me?

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

wicks

The suggested size wicks drown in this wax???

NICE!!

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!!

ecosoya cb-advanced soy wax

being all natural is always a plus and being we are supporting our american farmers is even better....i have used this wax before and it is awesome. all candles perfect everytime. love it...thanks candle science!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best wax !

This wax is the best wax that i have ever used. No frosting, smooth and really easy to work with.

This is great wax

i have used this and Golden Brands 444 Wax and this tops it! smooth tops, no frosting, VERY EASY to work with. i strongly suggest this wax. you get what you pay for
