Terrible batch variation

I had never used the original Advanced, but happily tried it when it was released again in Australia. The first box performed well, though I did feel the hot and cold throw was not as amazing as people had suggested. Then a big price decrease happened across all suppliers in Australia (I don't know why). I got another box.....and it is terrible! Cold throw is poor, hot throw is noticeably worse than the previous box. The worst thing though is the shrinkage....the candles literally shrink so badly that they rattle in their jars and would fall out if the wick was not stuck to the bottom! I've played around with all variables and tested it against other waxes and have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with this wax. Unable to get a refund from my supplier (they won't admit something is wrong), I've moved on to another wax.

An update from my previous review....I ended up mixing the two waxes I had left, the new CB Advanced and the Ecosoya 210, used larger wicks in all the jars, in come cases 2 wicks and WOW! They came out beautiful with amazing scent throw. The ratio is was roughly half and half, so I ordered 10# of each one and am ready to go again. Happy day!

Not the Same but Better Than the Others

I used to use the flake cb Advanced before it was discontinued. Right now I'm testing the 4oz tins with the eco 8 wicks and I'm happy to say it looks/ smells good. No, it's not the same but it's better than the Q series or any other soys I've tried to replace the original cb adv. with. Expect some differences (tops may have to have a heat gun sweep to smooth) and go 2 sizes up for wicks until they bring the original back.

Don't call it by the original name, when it's far from it

I gave this 2 stars because they removed the awful vinegar scent, and I actually like the pastille form it's in, but that's as far as I can go with this. The scent throw is terrible and the wicking I used with the original advanced does not work at all anymore. I refuse to spend hundreds of dollars, and hours of time trying to make this sellable. I'd be the happiest customer on the planet if you would actually bring back the original formula, but heed my advice and pass on this one.

SO VERY HAPPY to have the CB Advanced Back

There is no wax that we like better than the ES CB Advanced wax. It gives our fragrances great scent throw and looks very nice in our glass jars. Thank you for bring it back! Will leave another review after we have used this new CB Advanced - to see if its just like the good ol' wax. :)

candlemaker

I've been making candles for a year now. I am having a hard time with this new Ecosoya CB Advanced wax.
What wicks are working the best for you all out there? I can't seen to get a consistent wax pool all the way
down the Tumbler container (Classic tumbler). I have been using a 14 or 16 Ecowick .
Any Suggestions?

So Happy to Have it Back!

Melts down quick, holds scents great & solidifies beautifully. I'm glad the cb adv. is back because it's the best soy I've used so far!

Hi from Perth, Australia, My business was built around CB Adv, beautiful wax with very few issues. I was devastated Ecosoya stopped producing it. I was super excited when they chose to bring it back though and after a considerable amount of testing I’ve come to the conclusion that it is not the same CB Adv I know and love. Using my standard 2.5” Jars wick size has gone up by 3 sizes, having to double pour to ensure a perfect surface and the hot throw is nowhere close to what it used to be. I wonder why they’ve messed with something that was already fantastic. Such a shame.

I was so happy with the previous version of the CB Advanced wax. Never had any problems, smooth top, good scent throw. I was disappointed they discontinued it. Tried a couple other brands, much to my dismay. Then happily bought 10# of the new Advanced wax, and my whole batch of candles are useless! They all needed a larger wick or even two wicks. I'm not sure if I'll try another batch or not. Not pleased at all :(

Ecosoya cb adv

I'm happy with the newly released cb . It takes some work to retest but I'm very happy to have it back !

Unhappy

I've also noticed that the price has been dramatically reduced by all suppliers here in Australia in last few weeks for the new CB Advanced formula.

Hi from Australia....2 years ago I launched a home candle business. Being a beginner I decided on Ecosoy Advanced as the reviews were great for beginners. I was so pleased and the business thrived even better than I imagined. When that was discontinued, I switched to the Q210 but after lots of testing, and not happy with the vinegar smell, I eventually threw it all out. I was excited to see Advanced released again but definitely not happy as it's obvious they changed it from the original. It has very poor cold throw (non existent) and very poor hot throw. The wicks need to be a size bigger than before. Luckily I have a customer who only wants unscented candles so I use it for her. I have switched to another brand which has good throw but still testing wick sizes. Very expensive exercise costing me a lot of time and money. Why they changed a perfectly good product still baffles me.

Disappointed

I used CB advanced before they discontinued it and it worked great with the formula 1lb wax to 1oz fragrance oil. I switched over to 464 and 444 which were both nightmares and was stoked when they re released CB advanced. I used the same amount of fragrance oil as before thinking it would turn out the same. There was no cold throw with the new wax. I tested some candles and not much of a hot throw either. With the new CB advanced, I have found that you need to use 1lb wax to 1.5oz fragrance. Heated the wax to 165 and poured at 120. The tops set really nicely. I use 5/8” (.03) wooden wicks in a 3” diameter jar. The cold and hot throw are better but not great. I’m bummed this wax is not performing the same as before they discontinued it. Should have named it something else if it’s not the same wax.

Pretty Frustrated.....

So first a little background.....I am a new candle maker. I have been in the testing process for 2 months. Stupid me, I have already advertise the launching of my new company for June 15th ( a week from now) and I am still having trouble. So the first wax I tested when I started was GB 444. Great hot throw, no wet spots BUT I could not for the life of me get a smooth top. I tried all the ticks I read about and nothing worked. Reheated the top...just hardened back to a rough frosted, cratery top. Even when I burned the candle they would re-harden to rough tops. So moving on.....I heard that this amazing wax that everyone loved was re-launching....enter EcoSoya CB Advanced. On a side note, I really wish CandleScience would delete ALL reviews prior to the revised product because that leaves a newbie somewhat mislead. Even though I knew the product was a relaunch when I bought it....one could argue it gives false hope. Anyway, I went through about 6 lbs of CB advanced. I LOVED how it set up. Very smooth tops....I did get wets spots but for me that was better than rough cratery tops. BUT, in the last few days....after curing candle for 10 days... I have started test burning the same scents as I did in the GB 444 and there is almost zero hot throw. These scents were amazing in GB 444 but are almost non existent in CD Advanced.....so frustrating. Now, I have GB 464 coming tomorrow to try. I am going to try it as a standalone first but then I may try mixing the two. See if I can get the scent throw of the GB products with the set up qualities of the CB Advanced. Has anyone tried this yet? Please let me know.

The search continues

Scent throw is very underwhelming and also if you’re using the ECO wicks with this then I’d recommend using at least one size larger than is recommended on the candle wick guide on this site.

More reviews of the new release needed

I wish more people would describe their experiences with this wax now that it is available again. Does it perform as well as it did before it was discontinued? I loved this wax and never had any problems with it. Always had beautiful smooth frost-free surfaces and no tunneling. Wish I could say the same for the GB 464 but that wax gave me nothing but trouble, the most frustrating of which was the lumpy wrinkly surfaces it produced upon setting. I tried everything, but No matter what I did I couldn’t completely overcome that issue. I’m cautiously thrilled that EcoSoya is back.

Haven't used the wax yet, but just opening the bag is already an improvement from the newer Q210 wax in that the wax itself does not have that same awful smell. Overall I like the performance of the Q210, I just can't stand the awful sour smell. If the relaunched CB advanced preforms as well without the stink I will be very happy.
