So i am not one to normally leave a bad review because i love plant based waxes and CS does no wrong in my eyes. But this was for my melts is terrible. I made a total of 60 melts - various scents thinking at first it may have been my oils (too much) but then i realized the numerous sink holes. So I placed the clamshells on foils, then those had holes. Then i placed them on the cookie stands with foil underneath and it still had sinkholes. Then i placed it on the naked table and still had sinkholes so big in all of them that i would have to warm more wax just to fill them. This is a serious issue for me because i feel duped and i know that waxes are temper-mental hahahahaha but this one is so unforgiving. CS Please, please, please my company exists because of quality products and i cannot sell this to my customers even if i tried to. So now, I must sell at a discount and call them my "ugly batch" which now put me at a loss. Otherwise, you have great scents and awesome diffuser base. Reach out to me and help me fix this please. Also if you need me to send pics I have proof and also you can check my account and see i made an order. Looking forward to this being corrected.

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 PB is a great choice for creating pillar candles, votives, wax melts, and tarts. This all-natural, 100% soy wax exhibits very good scent throw, achieves vibrant colors, and releases easily from molds.

Note: Wax is packaged in pastille form.

This wax was no good. It left frosting all over my candle molds and candle. I'm sad the other pillar wax has never done this to me. & this wax was way more expensive -.-

This wax is horrible, I made a huge order going out tmw and all my wax melts had sink wholes. I bought this wax thinking it was a bit better than BW-921 but honestly it's worse and it cost more. I'm so disappointed, I've never had issues with my wax melts especially sink wholes. Please add a picture section to your reviews.

I have used this wax to make natural-wax pillar candles. It is a great natural alternative to paraffin blends that I use in a low-carbon footprint natural candle line. It is less forgiving than some waxes, but produces beautiful candles out of the mold with testing and careful temperature control. The wax has a good FO load and very acceptable CT and HT for a natural (non-paraffin) wax. The notes were very helpful in developing a testing plan. I have also employed some unique coloring techniques that make the candles really stand out. This is not a do-everything wax (hence the 4 stars) but with the right FO and some testing it produces wonderful candles.
This wax was terrible!! It was so much frosting & the texture of it when it molds is nasty it feels like sand . I couldn’t even sell the candles I made with this wax.

At first I only got a small bag to mix with soy to make “frosting” for dessert candles but I ran out of 416 tart wax and mixed some in.....I will NEVER go back. It holds up SOOO much better in clamshells and in the molds it can handle higher % of FO and so far I’ve noticed very little frosting. This will now be my go to. I was worried about getting a case since for some odd reason the most important thing we need is the only thing that’s never packaged with a box in a box. But the way this was packaged was really good.
I was so glad that I was able to order this wax. I was really waiting for the delivery, and the first thing I did was to prepare candles. And this is what I saw after I melted the wax. THIS IS SOME KIND OF HORROR. Garbage in melted wax. And for this I gave such money? This is unfair and I would like to get my money back or fix this wax. I can't afford to sell candles with such dirty wax 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
PS. And why can't I attach a photo of the proof on your website?

This is a perfect 10 for wax melts!
Added color blocks at 180, FO between 150-165. Very good cold throw but very little to no Hot throw... I purchased 11lbs and used all ( I thought everything was fine because my CT were nice) expecting to have plenty of melts for an event next week... Now I’m wondering if my melts can be re heated and fixed or do I have 11lbs of wasted wax melts to just stare at. Very sad, but I wish I could get some guidance to correct by my event day.

I got this wax to try my hand at making wax melts as I'm still learning and failing at candles lol, this wax is amazing! I made my first batch yesterday and of course, I couldn't wait to try them, after 24 hours cure time I tested them and I am getting a great HT in quite a large area!
This is the best wax I have used to make my melts! The melts separate themselves after curing when I open the clamshell. Nice clean break and intact. The HT and CT are good. I have no complaints about this wax. One of my best purchases of wax by far!
This is another wax I wanted to try out of my curiosity for my wax melts. I followed the guidelines and melted the wax and poured at 160 . I added my fragrance oil at 176 , the dye at 180. The melts cooled within a short time and I noticed that there was a glaze on the top of the melts. It looked like my melts do when I use regular soy wax and add a small amount of paraffin. This is fine with me, because I was wondering how soy wax can get that hard, it is a soft wax normally. But regardless the wax is fine good snap, hot throw and cold throw. I am totally satisfied with it!
I made wax melts for the first time ever using this wax in clam shells. I mixed the Lemon Pound Cake FO at 180 and poured at 160. The next day everything was smooth and popped right out of the clam shell no problem. Love it so far for the clamshells.
I am super sad this blend isn't working for me. I am using molds to make decorative pillars and this wax just doesn't leave a nice finish. A double pour and heat gun is definately required! Cold throw is great, hot throw is okay. I wish there were more reviews or better instructions to get nice results.
I really don't want to write this review, but I so wanted to like this wax bc of its Eco qualities, plus they come in pellet form. However, I am not getting any cold throw or hot throw and I've tried adding and pouring my fragrances/wax at different temperatures. I don't have a whole lot of funds to just throw away, so this was really disappointing. The wax I was using prior was 'out of stock', so I was happy to give this a try. I should have waited just a little longer to order the wax I normally use...
I’m not loving this wax at all. It keeps caving in the center of my bubble candles and in my wax melts as well. Do you have to use two pours with this wax? I only want to be able to use one pour and be done. Any tips please?

This is the fourth wax I’ve tried for melts and by far my favorite! With no color added, the end product is beautiful. Shiny, white, and no frosting. I add 10% FO at 185 and pour at 160. I used to pour cooler but was getting some sinking. Customer service recommended 160 and it’s perfect. Also holds color well, block, liquid and mica. Perfect!
I tried this wax today for the first time to make wax melts in silicone molds and it turned out fantastic! This is what worked for me: At 180 degrees I added color. At 170 degrees I added fragrance and stirred for 2 1/2 minutes and at 151 degrees I poured into the silicone wax molds. I let them set about an hour and a half at room temperature and they popped out perfectly and the whole house smelled so good :). I personally went a little over the recommended fragrance load since these are soy and it worked great for me. Will definitely be ordering again.
EcoSoya performs beautifully for my wax melts. Pops easily out of clam shell without crumbling. Holds our high FO load well.
This is probably the worse wax I've used! It breaks with just looking at it, it gets a ton of frost, it caves when it dries, and even strong fragrances that I've used with other wax like 949, with this one it has no throw what so ever. Total waste of money. Very disappointed
I like how the wax is in pallets, but be Warned do NOT open the grey bag and think there is another bag holding the wax, I almost lost all my wax when I open the bag and layed it flat the wax pallets started to fall all over I caught it in time thank goodness, just becareful when opening, I do suggest open it standing upright and then get what you need out of it and clip it shut, it does now come with another bag to seal the wax, Unless I got a cheap packer who was in a hurry..
At what temp should I add fragrance oil? Having previously used the now discontinued GW 494 to make my melts I am desperately trying to find a replacement! With 494 I would heat to 190, add fragrance oil @180, then pour 160. I read the lab notes included and did not see what temperatures it was heated and fragrance oil added. Thank you.
