Product Update: July 17, 2019

NGI/EcoSoya informed us that after 20 years in business, they are closing their doors and will permanently discontinue manufacturing all Q-series soy, CB-Advanced, and PB Pillar blend waxes. This wax will no longer be available once stock is depleted. Please watch the video above for more information.

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.

New candle creator

Hello, other candle creators!
I'm a new passionate candle creator! Candle creating came to me as a new idea to give as holiday presents! I had fun making candles, and coming up with new scents, colors, names and wax wear for them. Then a vision, if you will came to me and said," Turn this fun into a life style!" So I am, my first time selling my candles to the public had me, vulnerable and excited! Excited to be sharing myself with other artists that are just like me, eager to create, share and thrive! With that being said I noticed some of the veteran candle creators on this review use jargon such as, FO%. What does that mean? Also what are some other candle creator terms I should learn? Thank you all so much!

Peace and Love,
Lucia Light

So far, I really like this wax so far. Yes, it has a vinegary smell. But I never smell it in my final products. The adhesion to the jar is pretty bad as well. I'm still playing around with the FO % to get the best scent throw. The tops are pretty smooth & the wax burns clean. I'm hoping with a little more tweaking I can get this wax to work perfectly. :)

After 10 years of successful candlemaking with CB Advanced I feared the worst when it was discontinued. Well, all of my fears came true and after going through nearly 40lbs of a 45lb of Q220 I'm ready to throw out every candle I've made with it, order the new CB Adavanced that just rolled out, and see if that's any better. Every single one of my candles has a liquid/oil layer at the bottom that never solidifies and if you let the wicks burn down too low they begin to crackle in the oil as if they are going to catch the entire surface of the wax on fire! I can't make wax melts at all because of this and I end up having to scoop out the wax from the tops of the candles that is actually solid and re-melt and re-pour into smaller containers. This wax is stinky and useless and the manufacturer's need to stop selling it because all they're doing is wasting people's time and money! I'm giving it one star simply because the tops are always smooth and I never have to float them. Other than that I see absolutely no benefits to this wax. It's complete garbage.

Perfect wax except...

Smooth tops with no tunnelling, Its shiny and my dyes color it perfectly.. Its really the most beautiful wax that I have ever used. The only problem is that there is no cold throw! I used 1 ounce of candle science fragrance oil per pound of wax yet my melts and candles Have no scent whatsoever. I will give it two weeks to cure before I test burn and hopefully it improves. I have experimented with many waxes and have never had this happen before.

Great wax to work with

This wax is awesome! I bought a 10 lbs bag to test out my signature scent line and they work great with all of the oils I have put into it. Very easy to handle, easy to melt and no smell. I know some other people say they smell like vinegar before and after but we did not smell it at all. Very easy to mix in with oils and pour. Looks very smooth and beautiful once it has hardened over night. I will defiantly be using this wax for my signature scent collection.

After much delay and hesitation, I finally experimented with this wax. I'm very happy that I did! I use dye in my candles but hate the frosting that would happen with other waxes. After 2+ weeks, no frosting with Q220! The cold throw improved with each passing day. After 14 days, the test candles were burned and both passed with flying colors! As far as the vinegar smell that others had mentioned, I had samples of Q220 & 464 side by side and they smelled the same. I didn't smell any hint of vinegar. After mourning the loss of CB, I'm so glad to have Q220!

The vinegar smell is all I have to say about this wax. Seriously, why? The wax before AND after FO was added still smells of strong vinegar.

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! πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

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?
