The EcoSoya Q220 does double duty as a container and tart wax. With a slightly higher melt point, this wax stands up to the summer heat, reducing many shipping concerns. The wax also sets up and unmolds easily from clamshells and small metal tart molds.

The new EcoSoya Quantum soy waxes feature new technology that virtually eliminates frosting, allows for higher fragrance loads, higher pour temperatures and produces vivid colors.

Ideal fragrance load is 9-10% for optimal hot throw.

Suggested replacement for CB-Xcel and CB-Advanced wax.

Note: Wax is packaged in pastille form.
45 lb Case Size: 16.5" x 16" x 11.5"

Candle Making Notes:
This wax has a stronger odor than other soy waxes. It is more noticeable when melting large quantities. This is normal and will not affect the finished smell of your scented candle.

In our testing, we found this wax was significantly more prone to wet spots than the Q210. To avoid wet spots, preheating the jar is recommended. This wax is not firm enough for molded or freestanding candles such as pillars and votives.

Based on our testing, we recommend using the LX wick series with this wax. We found it to burn the most evenly across different candle diameters and fragrances. The ECO and HTP wick series created unusual looking mushrooms after burning, most prominent in higher fragrance loads.

When testing a new soy wax, it can be challenging to find the right process. To help you get the best results from NGI's new Q220 soy wax check out our lab notes.

Candlez & Beeswax Products

I've been using this new wax since it came out and have no complaints about it at all. I use no colors in any of my candles or melts, so I don't worry about that. It's either the natural color of the wax or the color of the oil that I've used. I never have any problems scent threw hot or cold. But I also don't put in drops of essential oils, I put in ounces! It makes beautiful melts, tarts and wicked candles in my tins. I've never noticed any type of odor nor have I experienced the wax smoking at all. I melts it in melting pots & double boiler style, and either way there's no smoking. So, Candle Science People, I have no complaints about the new product and I've already bought, poured & sold a lot of it.

Why???!!! 😫😫😫

Why??!!! Why did you change your formula? The vinegar smell aside, I can't get over how bad this wax smokes!! I didn't even heat it to 175 and it's smoking like I'm burning it! Huge thumbs down on this! 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Can't smell the fragrance

I used a 1lb bag and thought I added a lot of drops of essential oils but I can't smell it at all! I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong. I haven't burnt it yet but I have a soy candle that I purchased which has an incredible scent when its not lit. Help?

Please be patient with these waxes

We have tested both the Q210 and the Q220 waxes. 1. You have try hard to get a vinegar smell. Is there a slight odor? Yes, it it does not exist in any of our final products. 2. This is not a pure white wax. The final product will be a creamy off white color versus white. Fragrance oils will alter the color of this wax just like all soy waxes. 3. This wax takes color extremely well with no frosting and no remelt Line! 4. Adhesion is awful. We have tried heating the containers, insulating the candles while they cool, and nothing works. 5. Just like all other soy waxes you need to test for cold and hot throws. Some work better than others. The stronger fragrances are very strong in this wax and we only fragrance at 12%. 6. Wax tarts work beautifully with the Q220 and we have incorporated essential oils using tarts with excellent results. 7. You won’t achieve a smoother, flatter top than this wax! It does an excellent job on the first pour with fragrance and color. I feel extensive testing is required but you will yield excellent results aside from the adhesion. We add all fragrance at 185, stir for a full two minutes and pour around 140-165 and we are very pleased with the end result. PS - we’ve also tested the Q220 with wooden waxes and have also achieved excellent results.

At first, I was a little skeptical of this wax. We were attracted to the fact that a lot of our business will be shipping, so this has a higher melting point for that. The initial vinegar scent that the wax had threw me off also, but after we made a few different batches of candles, you cannot smell the vinegar at all. I was not aware that adding too much fragrance oil to this wax can actually make the throws more subtle, so once I adjusted my fragrance load, I was able to get great cold and hot throws. I would recommend this wax to anyone who does not want to worry about frosting in a glass jar and wants a higher melting point for shipping purposes.


Wow, what a disappointment after waiting so long for a new replacement wax. Besides smelling like vinegar and looking pale yellow, there is no cold throw whatsoever. We couldn't tell what candle was what. We have large wet spots even after warming up the containers. The only good thing I can tell about this wax is that the tops look great. Very smooth. However, that doesn't sell a candle. We have shows coming up and we are without a wax that can perform. So frustrating. By the way, Candlescience says that you have to wait three weeks for the cold throw. Please......I need to sell my product within a week of making. Don't spend your hard earned money on this wax!!! I have wasted money now on product that I can't use! I do believe Candlescience is trying to get this taken care of, as usual they are a good company to work with!


I am very unhappy with this replacement wax. I have been using the previous CB Advanced Soy for the past 5 years and had no complaints with it - in fact, LOVED IT and was crushed when I heard they were "reformulating it". The new formulation is not nearly as good as the previous wax. The color is not as light and the scent throw is poor with some of the fragrance oils I was using before. I have not noticed the vinegar smell that others have referenced. I have no problem with the way it sets up - very smooth finish and burns just as well, although I've noticed that I have to use a smaller wick because it seems to burn faster and I get big flames on my wicks in a shorter time period. Right now I'm not sure what I'm going to do because I don't find this wax to be an acceptable replacement and there is really no other on the market that I have found performed as well as the CB Advanced Soy. I'm SO disappointed that they had to go mess up a perfectly good product.

Disappointed 😔

Hi all! I’m greatly disappointed in this wax. I’ve tried 210 and 220 both ending with the same result, no scent throw. There is a vinegar smell housed in the wax and oddly enough vinegar helps to neutralize odors which would make sense as to why there’s no scent throw. But we should know why the vinegar is in there at least, don’t you think? If you have a show or anything approaching please DO NOT buy this wax until they have worked out the kinks and submit for multiple re-test. This product could very well taint the EcoSoya Brand. I’ve allowed 4 candles to set over a week and I’m getting a faint smell of the FO. I should not have to do this much adjusting for a wax that has went up in price but down in integrity. Candle Science I really hope the conversation with NGI has taken place because this can impact your customer base! Will continue to bubble up the issue until changes are made.


I had previously used Ecoysoya Advanced and loved it. Company said this was similar so I tried it. I opened the box to the smell of vinegar. Used 1lb wax to 1oz fragrance, heat to 185, added fragrance oil at 165 and poured at 135. Let candles cure 48 hours before testing and I could still smell the vinegar. Candle tops had sinkholes. I contacted to company to notify them of the vinegar smell and they said to wait 3 weeks to cure and the smell should go away. That didn’t bother me much, I can wait but what did bother me was when I used a fragrance oil I had used before with EcoSoya Advanced, the color of the candle cured to a caramel color! Ugh don’t order this wax until they can perfect it and save yourself some headache.

Wonderful Wax/ Don't give up / Be patient

Like most of you I used CB-Advanced but didn't like all the problems. This new wax solves those for me. No more sink holes, wet spots, I hated the way the wax looked after it burned and re-cooled. With all new waxes there is gonna be a learning curve. I bought this wax and forced myself to FIGURE IT OUT. I am happy I did. Here is what I have done so far. Heated wax to 185. 9oz of wax, fragrance at 10% (.9-1oz) I always add fragrance at 160, stirred for two min, poured at 140. I use the tumbler jars from CS and wood wicks from the wooden wick co. The candles set up beautifully w/ smooth tops. I wicked tested after 48 hours. Then let them cure for two weeks. hot and cold throw was amazing. I will probably let them cure another week.
I got excited and decided to tested at 12% fragrance load. Honestly did not have any cold throw, very weird and disappointing. So I will be staying at 10%.
Fragrances I have tested so far. Mistletoe, Red Ginger Saffron, Pomegranate Cider.
Overall I am very HAPPY with this wax, it is very easy to work with. I DO NOT smell ANY "vinegar" in the finished candle.

VINEGAR - How disappointing!

I'm so disappointed. VINEGAR is all that I smell. I'm seriously considering switching back over to paraffin because I'm so done with the soy wax battle. Ecosoya's original formulation was perfect. I just wasted money on 25 pounds of this wax!

I cannot get over the vinegar smell. I have finished candles and the smell is still present.

Vinegar Smell

Sooooo disappointed. Smells like vinegar. Wax COMPLETELY messed up my candles.

Over powering vinegar smell which is apparent when melted and unfortunately still present after scent is added and cured so all of the scented candles have a strong vinegar scent.

Looks beautiful, but disappointing cold throw.

I had really high hopes for this wax! It set up beautifully and my candles look perfect. The color is more of a "caramel" color than other waxes i've tried. I am so sad to report that I am getting well below average cold throw after a day of curing. Is anyone else getting this result? I've also tested this wax as dual purpose candle/tarts and it is too soft to release easily from molds because it doesn't seem to contract ever so slightly like other harder waxes. I'm letting things cure for another two days before I test the hot throw and will try to keep an open mind, but the initial low cold throw is concerning to me. I can barely distinguish what candle is what.
