Product Update: September 24, 2021

Recent changes in supply and demand for soy commodities are causing prices for soy waxes to increase. Watch Kevin in this quick video to learn more.

EcoSoya waxes were a favorite of candle makers for nearly 20 years. When NGI made the decision to close their business in 2019, they left a big gap in the soy wax market. In early 2020, UK-based manufacturer Kerax purchased the brand and these popular soy waxes are, very happily, once again available.

EcoSoya CB-Advanced Soy is a container wax made from 100% soy and soy-based additives. Candles made with CB-Advanced Soy resist frosting, have smooth surfaces, great glass adhesion, and an even burn pool with consistent color retention. This wax ships well in all climates.

Sweat and hot throw

Hello!

As I read through the comments, I see I am not alone! I followed the instructions to a T but I also have sweating and the hot throw isn’t very strong even when I add 6% fragrance ): I just tried adding 1.1oz into 1 point so maybe that will help. I also noticed tiny bits of wet spots on my glass. I’m using the 8oz mason jar and the LX18 candle wicks and read that was suggested but one side hasn’t burned all the way after 2 hours. If that okay? I’m still going to burn it for another 2 so maybe it’ll balance out! It is slightly crooked also which plays a factor. Any suggestions on the sweating and hot throw??

Sweating and Hot throw

I actually love how easy it is to deal with this wax. its smooth every time no heat gun required really. but sometimes my candles tend to sweat and i am not sure why. i calculate the percentage but sometimes it still sweats. now i have also tested the candles while i am sitting in the same room maybe reading a book or w/e but you really can not smell it at least not until i leave the room and come back in then it like oh ok there it is. it there a way to get a stronger hot throw with this wax?

I like it

I think it gave off a good scent throw. It did have some oil seeping on the top but I’ve been trying different combinations to see what works best.

CB Advance Wax looks & Settles Different

This is hands down my favorite wax to buy from candle science. I usually get the 44lb but this new wax recently received is much softer wax than I am use to from CB Advance. In addition, the wax is much larger. Truly hope I was not given another brand in the shipment. was hoping to be able to attach photos to show the wax received prior vs the new wax received this go round. The integrity of the wax is extremely important.

Hi,

I have the same issues as other people have commented on this wax. After a few days the wax starts to sweat. It looks awful. I bought a large quantity and I feel that I am stock with all this wax. Any suggestions are very welcome.

Sweating

I'm having issues with sweating. I've made adjustments that I've not had to make with other waxes I've used and that still has not worked. It's inconsistent as well. Same batch will have some that sweat and others that do not. I don't know what to do to correct this issue.

Very easy to use wax

I found this wax easy to use. I did my first pour last week and the candles look and smell great. I was using the coconut soy wax blend you used to carry from another vendor but as this pandemic continues supplies in general have sky rocketed in price!
I decided to go back to a soy wax but wasn’t happy with the GB 464 wax and the inconsistency of the product. So, I decided to give this a try.
I gave it 4 stars only because I haven’t used it for any length of time yet and know how things can change. It is also costly and gave stopped selling due to not being able to keep costs down.

Mary

Makes my job easier!

Since using this wax, I no longer have to use a heat gun to smooth my tops! It's awesome. One question though... am I reading the CS instructions right when it suggests a 6% fo load with this wax for candles? I've only done a few fragrances with this blend, but I went ahead and used 10%. Candlescience- would you suggest otherwise for a stronger throw?

Angie Ward
CandleScience Reply

Hi There, Thanks so much for leaving your feedback and we're delighted to hear that you're enjoying working with EcoSoya CB-Advanced! To answer your question about fragrance loads, we recommend starting with a 6% fragrance load or 1 weighed oz of fragrance per 16 ounces (1 lb) of wax. The amount of fragrance you'll use will also depend on the type of wax you're using and your personal preference though, and as you start testing, you will notice that some fragrances may seem lighter or stronger to you at 6%. It's not unusual to find that you may need to adjust your fragrance load for each fragrance oil individually. You can certainly increase your fragrance load from 6% if you would like your candle to have a stronger scent as long as this does not exceed the maximum fragrance load listed for that wax. We hope this helps but if you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Support team at support@candlescience.com and we'd be happy to assist further!

Sweats

Got a large quantity of wax, finish product looks great but as soon as I go to sell , the heat cause it to sweat and all the oils come to the top it looks like it’s melted but it’s oil. I mix the fragrance oil at the recommended temp for 2-3 min and make sure it’s well mixed. I even made a candle with out FO and still had the same issues. Sweating is not a good look.

Best Soy Wax

This is the best Soy wax I have tried yet! I have been making candles for two years now and tried pretty much every soy wax in the market. This is one of the best ones yet! I’ve never had a soy wax that I didn’t have to use a heat gun to make the tops “look pretty”. I heat this wax to 185F and then I let it cool down to 145F to put my fragrance oils in and then I pour at 130F and they come out perfect every single time! Do not follow the instructions on candle science for this wax it does not work as great as the way I do it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We’re so glad you found something that works for you. Our recommendations are based on years of rigorous testing, so adding fragrance at 185°F is still our suggestion with any of the waxes we carry and with any of our fragrances. We’ve found this to be the optimal temperature for the wax and fragrance to bind in order to provide the best scent throw.

Love this wax

I melt my wax to 167* and pour between 140*-150*. I don't have any problems with it. If you watch the youtube videos, they share you don't need to get this wax too hot like 464, etc. Good luck, Chandlers!

It’s not me, it’s you [the wax].

I wanted to love this wax, I really did. I thought me being a novice was the source of my my issues so I continued to test and test and test. I tested based off of CS’s recommendations along with the manufacturers guidance (both wildly different).

There’s no HT. And rarely any CT! Do NOT use light fragrance oils with this wax. You will smell nothing. This wax is impossible!!! I work with shallow vessels (3in tall) and it’s impossible to wick. Eco and premiere wicks gave me the least headache. I was never able to try LX because they continued being sold out.

My wax bag has a very weird smell to it. I cannot get rid of it. Even with the strongest FO, I can still smell the weird wax smell. This candle sweats. It also has these swirls at the top, like FOs are not binding - add 6% or 10% - it still looks like this.

This waxs’ only redeeming quality is its smooth tops, and the continued smooth tops after each burn. After months of testing I’m breaking up with this wax… “it’s not me, Ecosoya; It’s you!!!”

Responding to “John Doe”

Yes, you are correct that it is Celsius I was referring to in my original message, however, my point was to go to Ecoysoya’s web site, there recommendation and Candle science’s is completely different. Ecoysoya says to heat to 167 degrees FH and to pour at 140 degrees FH. I have tried and wasted most of my wax and fragrance due to incorrect information.

Hi there! Thanks so much for reaching back to us and helping each other. We've done bunches of testing different pour temperatures and blend temperatures to find the ones that work best. Our recommendation for the temperature at which to add fragrance to your wax, 185°F, remains the same for all of our waxes and fragrances; as does our recommendation for 150° as a pour temperature for EcoSoya Advanced. We've found these to be the optimal temperatures for wax and fragrance to bind in order to provide the best scent throw. If you have any additional questions or concerns as you continue to test, however, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@candlescience.com. We are always happy to help.

This is a five-star wax, however, but since I used it the wrong way and it was the way CS instructs, I had to give it two stars due to the performance I actually witnessed. I bought this wax, and like many others on this thread, I was so excited to try it. I received it and started using it right away. The tops - phenomenal, the jar adhesion - impressive. Cold throw - Meh, hot throw - nonexistent. I tried all combinatioms, different FO loads, I tried blending the wax with tart wax, but a whole 45-lb case later, still no improvement. Imagine my disappointment when, while researching the issue, I find out that I have been following the wrong instructions. I am reading reviews on CS and find out that I have been putting my FO in at too high of a temperature! I read this and freaked out, I have wasted so much money in wax and FO!! When I read the review, I went to the ECOSoya website and near fainted. It would be really nice if CS, especially since I frequent them the most as my candle supplier, would list their instructions somewhat close to what is on the actual manufacturer's website; there would be way more five-star reviews because it is a great wax. I am not going to give up on this wax, just follow the correct instructions.

I have purchased this wax and followed your instructions, which was to heat to 180 pour in FO and stir for a good 2 minutes and pour around 150. I haven’t had much success with HT, so I looked on the Ecoysoya CD advantaged web site and their instructions are wAy different. They suggested to heat to 70 degrees and pour around 60 and putting in the FO after heated to 70. How can your instructions be that far off, unless I’m missing something?! Please let me know which is the correct way to use this wax. Thank you!

Can’t Cover Up The Scent of this Wax

I’ve tried several different scents, proper curing time and this wax just has a horrible odor that you can still smell even after the candle has cured and that’s both the cold & the hot throw, I had asked about the odor when I received this wax and was told it was normal, and wouldn’t affect my candles, it has & I've tried everything.

This is the first wax I used and I fell in love with it. I looked up the manufacturer instructions, so I am not sure why Candle Science says heat to 185 and pour at 150. You need to add your fragrance at 145-140, stir for about 2 minutes, pour at 140-135.
I love this wax and have had a hard time finding a back up wax for this one. Please keep this in stock.

Dawn K

Candle maker

I have been testing this wax out for months and almost gave up hope. I finally added my fragrance oil at under 150- between 140-150 , stir for 2 -3 mins and poured at under 150 but never under 120 and I was able to get the full performance out of this wax. I'm disappointed in the fact that there is very little info out about this wax.But now I love it!
A good sign with this wax,that I have noticed is if your wax starts to solidify within 30mins of pouring- the candle will be fine.Oh,also your room temp does matter too.
Please keep this in stock and stop allowing it to go out of stock!!!

Janice

Disappointed

The HT & CT is vague! I like 464 Soy wax much better!
This wax is darker in color (beige/tan) and it has a strong smell on its own. Purchased 3 bags! Super disappointed in the money wasted.
Usually my candles are STRONG! That you can smell them even when packaged, these... not at all!

Sweating ):

The first batch of this I got to test was great. The candles were easy to wick at 10% fragrance with LX wicks. I ordered a 40 lb case and allllllll of the candles I made are sweating like crazy. I can’t sell these, they’re pure oil on top and would absolutely be a fire hazard. I’m so upset because they poured beautifully and now I wasted tons of time and money. Hopefully there’s something I can mix this with to make a safe candle, I’m so upset. ):

Sweating! Sweating! Sweating!!

I wanted to love this wax SO much, But I can't, due to the massive amounts of sweating! The tops are so smooth and creamy and the container adhesion is fairly decent as well! But the tops of my candles are solid oil after a few days of cure! I've tried everything, adjusting my temperatures and also lowering the FO to 3% and I still get sweating! I never leave reviews but I felt compelled to leave a review for this product in hopes of keeping someone from making the same mistake I did when ordering this wax! I have reached out to customer support and after about 2 weeks of testing different variations of melt temp, pour temp, and FO nothing seems to work and I'm calling it quits on this wax, unfortunately!

Jason Bishop

It's okay..

I have made lots of candles with this wax; the candles are beautiful, no holes and even tops. The cold throw from the candles are awesome!! BUT there's little, very little to no Hot throw. I put candles(10oz, 6 and 7 percent oil cure time 1 week 2 week and 3) in smallest bathroom and there was a very faint smell.

Wanted to love it

I really wanted to love this wax but I have had too many issues with it. The adhesion is not good - I always get spaces and pulling and shrinkage in my candles. The first batch I ordered in December was better than my most recent one. I have made multiple candles with my most recent batch and NONE of them have any hot throw whatsoever. Maybe there is a quality control issue because I am doing nothing different and have had less than desirable results.

I don't really make candles much any more because I love wax melts so I exclusively use my wax for that purpose. This wax is fantastic for my melts!

DJ

I was super excited when I purchased this wax, even purchased extra. The top is smooth, however, it sweats regardless of what you do. I can imagine the customers thinking to themselves that I sent them a bad candle and I would have to explain the reason it sweats is that it's pure Soy Wax. It does have a good CT, can't say much about the HT. I've tried pouring the FO at recommended temperature and at different temperatures and the HT is faint while burning. I'm getting a little discouraged with all the wax I have waisted just testing it out before I start selling them. Can a representative please reach out to me? I appreciate any feedback.

Did I get a bad batch???

I started making candles about 7 months ago and have become obsessed. Until now I have only used 464, but I thought I would try something new, so I gave this a shot. I was concerned the second I opened the box as it had a very unpleasant odor to it...but I went ahead and poured a couple candles with it. I will say it looks beautiful, it was very easy and I got perfectly smooth tops. However, that odor is still lingering, but now it is mixed into the fragrance oil. I have not burned one yet to see if it is noticeable in the hot throw, but there is no way I will continue making candles with this wax. This nasty odor can't be normal, can it? The only reason I gave this wax more than one star is because of how beautifully it poured. Would not recommend unless you like a mix of unpleasant wax odor with your cold throw. Such a disappointing waste of money, I'm glad I got the smallest quantity available.

Sweating

As others have mentioned, I’m also have issues with this wax sweating. I’ve adjusted my mixing and pouring temperatures and bumped my FO percentage down, and am still having problems with sweating. Waiting to hear back on whether they are still safe to burn like this or not? Really wish I could get this wax to work, my tops have been perfectly smooth every time with it.

CB

Ok wax

I really wanted to love this wax for the price point. It turns out, I have had so many issues with this, not to mention that it is backordered for months so I cannot use it reliably.
Pro: smooth tops always, great cold throw, good for tarts, melts.
Con: air bubbles, bad container adhesion, SWEATING SWEATING SWEATING. I am so so so disturbed by the amount of sweating in this wax. I followed all the recommendations and my candles still sweat, even at 5% fragrance load. This is just so ridiculous and I can't sell the candles like this. I took a gamble purchasing this wax and I am just going back to my finicky 415 wax.

Air Bubbles in Wax

As another reviewer has mentioned, I love this wax however, I experience a ton of air bubbles in the wax as the candle is burning. I’ve heated the wax to the recommended temperature, and poured at the recommended pour temp. I’ve poured at 130, 120, but I still get the air bubbles when I burn the candle. I pour very slowly, but still end up with the same result. It’s really just aesthetics, but it kind of triggers my tripophobia because the bubbles are in patches and kind of look a little creepy and give me the heebie jeebies. I would love to work with this wax, but I could imagine customers thinking something might be wrong with the candle or find it aesthetically unpleasing as well. Has anyone else had this issue?

This wax has been very easy to work with! The CT/HT both have been great; however, super bummed that this wax hasn't stayed in stock and the restock date just keeps getting pushed out. Not sure how I'll be able to use this wax if it continues to go in and out of stock for months...

Lindsay

Excellent wax!

I love this wax! I have 9 ounce, 12 ounce and 4 ounce jars plus 8 ounce sized tins and all tested differently so I made the following adjustments: For the jars I put foil down in two layers and set the jars down and use the heat gun on low across the tops aimed into the jars before pouring at 145 degrees and I see great glass adhesion. The tins were fantastic and I used 2 Eco 1 wicks in them. I did notice some sweating like others have said but in my case it was because my candle studio was too warm. I adjusted the heat in the room and no further sweating. For my 9 ounce straight sided jars I used an LX16 wick which tested so well. I used two Eco 1 wicks in my 12 ounce straight sided jars. I adjusted my fragrance load down some and get excellent HT. I plan to buy more once it’s back in stock.

Why can't I get any Hot throw

Started this candle journey in January. I ordered this wax because the kits were sold out. Candles have curred for at least weeks or longer. The CT is awesome.Iv tested slot of the candles 10oz jars, 6oz tins also 8 oz jars with the CD 18-6 wicks, also wicks from hobby lobby.. either way no HT. I have 3 candles 1 of each size in my bedroom and you can't smell anything..very faint if you get very close to one. The burn pool is right etc.long burning time, but no Scent.whatnam I doing wrong? Iv ordered more wicks that's recommend for the jars I'm hoping it helps. Is there a better wax to use?

Sherri

Not what I expected

I was excited to try this wax because of the smooth tops and no frosting. The candles came out smooth top, no frosting, good glass adhesion after curing for a week. After I burned them for an hour they all had significant frosting, my customers would want a refund! This wax is too expensive to do that, will stick with my original wax.

Love it but......

I love almost everything about this wax but for some reason there’s always a ton of air bubbles in the wax but just around the wick while burning. Does anyone else have this problem???? I have tried different vessels, various kinds and brands of wicks and always have the same outcome. I’ve poured at multiple temps just to see if that was the problem but it wasn’t. This doesn’t affect the scent throw, burning nor the surface of the candle. Just the way it looks while burning the candle. I used 9-10% fo when making a candle and only stir long enough to incorporate the oils into the hot wax now, very slowly.....but still that isn’t helping. If anyone has any advice I’d love to hear it!

Low Melt Point

I really love this wax, but am a little concerned with the low melt point of 100 degrees. How does one ship this in the summertime? Really worried that my candles will begin to melt in transit.. Is there something that can be added to this wax to achieve a higher melt point?
Thank you in advance!

It’s ok

The wax has an even top which is great. The HT isn’t that great. Was excited to try and bought an extra case because of the great reviews but now I’m kinda regretting it. Will go back to my old wax. And I noticed it sweats... a lot.

Melting / fragrance leeching?

The tops come out very smooth, however, in about 80-85 degree temperature the tops started melting a little. I wasn't sure if it was fragrance leeching, so I tried anywhere from 6-8% fragrance oil, stirring for 2.5 minutes (not too vigorously) and was seeing the same thing happen.

There's also a natural smell to the wax which comes through even after the wax hardens and affects how the candle should smell.

I've tried Candle Science's pour temp and +/- 5 degrees of that and haven't had much luck with the performance. Wish I could love this wax as the tops really do come out perfect and is such an easy pour.

a little concern

I'm fairly new with candle making. I've tried 464 and the C3 and this is by far the best wax with the single pour. The smooth top is awesome and no need for the heat gun.

I'm just concerned about the smell of the wax itself. I tested this for the first time and the smell of the wax is bothersome to me. I haven't lit what I tested so I hope the smell disappears with the fragrance oil. And won't bother any customers. I would hate to have to explain to them why the wax smells weird.

Also I noticed that after I pour the wax, after a couple of minutes, the wax shrinks or evaporates about 1 cm. I've never seen that before. And when I used the Jamaica Me Crazy fragrance oil, the color of the wax turned a little darker. I used 8% FO.

Wax Sweating

I decided to try this wax out cause of the great reviews and have made several sized samples. But every sample ended up sweating, I've never had this issue this bad with the other waxes I've used with candle science. I thought it might have been fragrance leaching, but it also happened to the unused wax that was left over in my wax melter after it had solidified. I then found out that 100% soy wax does this... hard to explain this to customers so I'm going to have to stick to the other waxes. which is to bad because the tops looked great minus the sweaty look.

Good Substitute for 135

I have been using this in the absence of 135. I'm not sure why this one isn't sold out like the others, but it's a good wax to use in a bind or when you're out of the others. There are some differences that I've noticed during testing to take into consideration.

1. The wax changes color after the first burn. It gets a bit darker. It's mostly an aesthetic thing, but it happened with every test candle I burned! This being said, these candles have come out with smooth tops on the first pour every single time, so I think the exchange is definitely worth it.
2. It's got a good cold throw but only a decent hot throw. Comparatively, 135 is stronger to me and 464 is even stronger than that. Recently, 464 has been giving me problems so I switched to (and currently prioritize) 135. But since it's sold out, this is a good alternative, and works to keep my store stocked.

Because of the above changes, I do let my customers know that there is a change in the wax. On next restock, I'm hoping to go back to 135 since the hot throw was a bit stronger with that one, but I'd happily buy this in a pinch if I missed the opportunity to stock up on Ecosoya 135.

okay but not for clamshells

I like to try new waxes sometimes and so it went with this one. It is great for candles, I mean really, really great! But I wanted to see if it would do as well for melts and it was not so much . It was not a clean release with my clamshells , it gets stuck . So I had some paraffin to try with the next research batch and it work fine correcting that issue. But I will just use this wax exclusively for my container candles instead . It is great when clean up time comes. All you have to do is wipe out the pitcher, no reheating to get residue out.

I really love this wax ! It’s similar to the other eco soy one , it’s leaves a smooth top and my candles smell really good ! Happy with it I just hope they don’t run out lol

Must Try After Reading Great Reviews!

Just placed my 1st order and I can't wait to make my first batch! Been working with 464 and although I finally got my recipes down to the T for optimal hot throw; the cure time drives me nuts. Will come back in about 1 moth in after making/testing my first batch. Wish me luck guys :)

Really like it!

I bought this wax because of the shortage ecosoya 135 , but it is a terrific wax too I see! I used it on my containers and love the way it gives smooth tops the first time . No need to top off, hot throw and cold throw great too. Clean up for my wax containers easy, just wipe out. With my wax melts smooth tops too, the only thing I did not like was removal from the clam shells. A little difficult , but I like to have them pop out with a snap to it. I will continue to use just for making container candles and stick to my other wax for melts. I add paraffin to give more rigid melt. I like to hear the snap when I break them apart in the clamshells. And the suggested pour is 150 . The wax takes over 2 hours to finally solidify in the containers so you have wiggle time to work with .

Perfect!

I make candles and wax melts for a hobby and decided to buy this wax because ecosoya 135 was sold out. I normally just use the 464 or other natural soy for melts and paraffin soy blend for my candles. I have never even used the 135 just wanted to try it to find out why it was so liked by so many. This wax is awesome! It is very easy to work with , easy clean up with my equipment. The cold and hot throw is great. I love that the tops of my melts and candles is so smooth and uniform. I made candle and melt combos with the fragrance samples I had on hand . Great winner and my new go to no need to buy any other wax now.

WOW!

Okay.... So I really want my candles to be as clean and natural as possible.. I started using 464 Soy.. Great to work with but no hot throw.. Customers complained bc they couldn't smell unless super close.. I pivoted to the coco/para blend... INCREDIBLE hot and cold throw but... awful black soot remains on candle jar and that stuff is soooooo messy sticks to everything and water almost makes it worse to clean up with and it will clog your sink drain if you wash your supplies off SO MAKE SURE TO CRANK HOT WATER to melt it down the sink.. I learned the hard way. basement flooded when doing laundry.

That being said WOW I think I have found my new wax! This stuff is awesome. Great little beads of soy to work with easy to measure and fun to work with. Pours are nice and thick and OMG single pour smooth tops EVERY TIME! like magic pouring at 150. I was so supposed at the hot throw!! MUCH BETTER THAN ANY SOY OUT THERE. I do feel like its a fresher cleaner burn too!

I gave it 4 stars because the wax has a natural scent to it almost weirdly like cookies or faint smell of baking?? I can't pin point it but that scent I have found shows up especially in the cold throw. using 9-10% fragrance load. I don't notice it as much in the hot throw but its still there mixed in with the fragrance.

any help on that would be greatly appreciated. But you will love this wax trust me just buy it!

love it!!

I completed my research and it is all good! Better than I could have dreamed for a wax! I do not have to re-top the candles after pour or use a heat gun to smooth. They are smooth after the first pour. No air pockets near the wick. Even the wax melts cool evenly and smooth tops there too. I love this wax! No wonder EcoSoya are so popular and loved. It did not take long to match the correct wick. Burn tests went great too! I am very happy with my purchase!

Perfect!

I have used several different types of candle wax in my journey to making candles these past two years. Paraffin, coconut, paraffin soy blend , etc... but this wax is the best that I have ever used. The tops are smooth with my candles and wax melts. I mean absolutely perfect. I usually have to smooth the tops with a glue gun with the other waxes, not this wax. It is unbelievable how beautiful it forms. I love it! The cold throw is fantastic and hot throw. This is my new go to wax for everything .

So far so good

I got my delivery of this wax yesterday and am doing my research on which wick is best to use. So it is still a work in progress but I did make wax melts at the same time and so far so good . I poured at the suggest temp and it leaves smooth creamy texture. I will update in a few days about the candle burn.

Can this wax be used for clamshell melts?

I tried this wax and I’m in love. The pellets make it easy to use and measure, I have seen very little frosting in my dark colored candles. Really enjoyed using this product and will be making a order soon.
