We've been using this wax for 4 years now and just found out production is stoping! Can anyone recommend a good alternative? I'm dreading the whole testing process again, not only does it cost an absolute fortune but it's so time consuming.
ANY help or advice greatly appreciated.
I'm new to candle making and bought this particular wax based on the reviews. I made several small batches, all of which seemed to dry with a frosted and wrinkled surface. I tried the heat gun trick, but it didn't work - it only caused the wax to evaporate a little and the pre-tabbed wick to melt/char a little. Has anyone else had this issue? Or perhaps it's just the batch I received?
I switched back to this wax after several years. I was using the GB 464 but recently switched back due to issues pending with the GB wax. I must say, this is still a beautiful wax!! It took a little to get used to it but now I'm in love. It's a lovely color and adheres to the glass I think better than the other wax. I am ready to purchase more today, and just wanted to leave a review. If you are in the fence, try it you'll like it!
There was one review that stood out to me regarding there being a bad batch and it is now fixed so I ordered anyway! Believe it! This wax is great. I ordered a 50 lb as soon as I made my candles for the first time. They came out perfect! I've also compared pricing with other sites and they have the same great quality and at the best price per ounce! I will not order from anywhere else! Thank you Candle Science.
We tested wicks and waxes for 12 months extensively and this proved best in our climate. Smooth tops......No. But, this is easily remedied with a heat gun. It is worth the finishing touch. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy people! Think before you leave negative feedback for a product you have not fully invested time and effort into!
I am a soap maker, jewelry, tye dyer, so of course I need to make more of something, so massage oil candles, great! I made some and love them, I follow my rule of thumb and weight measure everything, get your temps where they need to be, do your cool downs, and do not rush anything. Turned out great, wonderful fragrances, great massage oil, very nourishing to the skin. I make everything myself and in small batches. Thanks Candle Science, love your products, These will be in my 2016 Season!
Rough tops and valleys.
I have been making candles for years with a different soy wax with nice smooth tops on one pour. I tried CB-135 to get better adhesion to the glass, which it does well. But as much as I try, I cannot get a smooth top. I have tried many different pouring temperatures, and even went as far as making a batch with no dyes or other additives and set the room temperature to a steady 70°, all with the same rough result. Not a single sellable candle. I will not buy this wax again.
I am new to candle making but when I was deciding on a wax I knew that I wanted to use a natural soy wax that was also compatible with essential oils. I'm so glad I chose Ecosoya CB-135! Not only do I have a good conscious using this product, this wax worked perfectly. I made my first candle without any flaws. It melted easily, poured fluidly (I poured at 115 degrees), and it hardened with a smooth, even surface. I also love the creamy white color of the finished candle. It has a nice cold scent throw and I was pleased with the hot scent throw. Of course using essential oils vs. fragrance oils will produce a softer aroma but nonetheless, this wax performed as it promised. After testing the made candle I was very happy with how even and smooth the wax re-hardened. I lit the candle and allowed it to burn several different times over a few days and each time it hardened with the same smooth surface. I have no desire to try or use any other wax. It is the perfect choice for making natural essential oil candles!
I've been using this wax for 3 years and within the last year I've been having all sorts of issues from severe bloom/frost to poor glass adhesion. I now have to heat my jars which I never had to do before. Just curious, has this wax changed in any way?
I pour this wax between 115 and 105 and it comes out perfect every time!
I have tried many waxes so far, Eco Adv, Eco Xcl, GB 464, 444, 415, and this is bar far my favorite. Its soft and pretty, makes very white candles if you are not putting any dye in like me. Even tops, and what I also like is after burning, the tops dry even, not bumpy and with holes like some. I also like that it is cosmetic grade and 100% soy. I have had consistent scent throws with all my FO's more with this wax than any other. Love it.
Ive used this wax for years and I haven't ever had a problem. I ordered as usual and found that customers were returning candles because they weren't burning. This happened for months. I called Candle Science and they told me the batch was bad from the manufacturer. They were kind enough to send me 4 or 6 cases for free from the new batch, which I appreciate. I only with they would have notified me of this defect because of the Christmas season and countless people who may not buy again. Its not CS fault, and I have received great wax ever since so if you used this wax and had an issue its back to normal now!
I built my business around this wax and was pretty happy for a while - until I received and made candles from four 50lb cases of wax that was apparently from a bad lot from the manufacturer. I lost thousands of dollars in production and shipping trying to replace candles that were already sent out to my customers at the beginning of the Christmas rush. It shouldn't be my responsibility to test each and every single case of wax that comes to my shop; if the entire lot was bad, the vendor (NGI, not CandleScience) never should've sent it out for distribution. I have no idea why testing wasn't done on their end, but I will never, ever use this wax -or manufacturer- again.
I am new to the candle making business but so far this wax has been great. At first, I followed the directions precisely and they kept frosting. But after a little research and trial and error I believe I have a solutions to the frosting. I melt to 160F, allow my dye to dissolve, remove from heat, and then allow to cool until 110F before adding the fragrance and pouring. I also make sure my house isn't too cold (under 70F). So far, this has worked on about a dozen batches.
I have a lot more experimenting to do but so far things are going great. Cold throw is awesome but hot throw isn't as strong as I would like, though my starting candles have all been on the smaller size. Like I said, more experimenting and I'm sure I could make an amazing candle!
The frosting is so bad, the 45 candles o made for christmas gifts i am stuck with, its that bad.. Never had i ever had this.. and it pulls away from the sides bad too.. I been making candles for 25 years so i know what i am doing. I am heart broken i wasted all the money in wax plus all my time to have something turn out like that.. Its so bad. I only give one start cause i cant post this with out a star,, other wise its not worth any stars.
I thought that I would try this wax and found that 1 out of every 4 candles came out unsellable. The frosting is terrible, some even discolor, and it happens very randomly. I tried different pour temps, warmed and unwarmed jars, different types of fo, all the same results. I ended up throwing out 9 of the 10 lbs of my second bag just because it was less expensive than wasting fragrance oil and dye. Back to CB Advanced to trouble shoot the wet spots it is!
I've been using Golden Brands 464 wax to make all of my candles. I have had no problems with uneven tops with GB, but lots of problems with frosting, even at low and high pour temps.
I tried this wax to help out with my frosting issues. I have NO frosting with CB135, but ALL of my candles have sink holes around the wick, even after pouring them at 3 different temps, 170, 150, and 125.
It's a complete waist of money, and I will not sell my sink hole candles to anyone. Guess, I'll be returning to GB 464 and settle for the frosting than the sinkholes.
Used this wax on a recent batch and was hesitant because of the reviews but the candles look and smell amazing! I have not burned them yet but the cold throw is fairly strong. I did use a little bit more scent oil than I usually do with my gb 444 but it is a nice throw. I use tsp rather than % so I use 3 tsp of scent per 1/2 lb wax and it works great.
I originally purchased this wax for use in massage candles but I fell in love and have been using it ever since! I love that it has a higher pour temp, takes dye chips and FO evenly and leaves much smoother surfaces on my jar candles!
I started using this wax almost a year ago and i've always had great results until this last batch. It's not a bad wax but I'm no longer getting the perfect candles I was once making. I have changed nothing in my candle making technique, but now i'm getting frosting on almost all my candles. The only thing I can think of is that the formula is different now?
I purchased this product as it was recommended for massage candles. I could not be more displeased. The candle does not burn well, a brown residue forms around the wick, and the oil does not pool. I have tried combining with several oils and none of them work.
I made a batch of candles with different fragrances. Melting and pouring and setting was great...but after burning they wax discolors and turned a yucky brown color - no color was added. I like my candles white. This happened with more than one fragrance.
I don't know what to do??
I was just wondering if anyone is having trouble with this wax. I'm getting lots of frosting and not a good ST like I usually get. My last two boxes have been this way. I loved the ones before these past two cases.
I use this wax and I like it. It can react with color ships a little differently sometimes, but not in tins. Also I think once you get your pour temp where you like it this pretty much goes away. I always use this wax and think its superior :)
I got along well with this wax except when I made my
brown color candles (for chocolate scent). After trying many different formulas, temperatures etc. I continued to have nothing but problems with rosting.I ended ing up throwing aways numerous candles because they looked poorly. They burn fine, the tops look
nice and creamy but dont seem to like dye.
I have been making soy candles for about 2 years and have purchased all of my supplies from CS. I think they are a wonderful company with great support. I have probably tried all of the soy waxes and I have had the best luck with the CB135. Very smooth tops and holds scent well. This wax cost a little more than some of the others but in my opinion it is very well worth it.
I have been using EcoSoya for about 7 years. I have tried others, but have not found an advantage to using anything else. AND Ecosoya waxes use non-genetically-modified soybeans that were not sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. This is important to me, as we have a chemical-free farm, and it is a great selling point for eco-conscious customers!
This is great soy wax to use, I have tried alot of different waxes and ecosoya 135 is my favorite...
