I’ve been using 415 wax since 2018. I use this wax because it’s 100% soy. No additives. Customers don’t mind imperfections, when they know it’s 100% soy. Anything natural isn’t perfect!

Excellent Blender

A lot of the people in these reviews don’t realize that this is more of a blender than a stand alone wax. This makes an EXCELLENT blender and provides my other soy wax with a tremendous CT & HT!

I bought this wax because I love all the fragrance oils I have bought from Candle Science. I am selling my candles and these did not turn out as expected. I used a heat gun on top and it appeared smooth but when it was time to test one it was so bumpy and full of craters after burning and it cooled down. Unfortunately I will not be able to sell these candles. It’s a bummer because I have several pounds of this wax left.

Very disappointed :(

I usually order the 464 but wanted to try something new. I ordered a 10 lb bag but now I’m disappointed because all the candles I’ve made so far have terrible craters. I sell my candles so I won’t be able to use this wax anymore because of how poorly it looks. I don’t recommend this one if you care about craters!

Pure Soy has craters on top and after burning, but excellent blender without additives

If you want pure soy, this is it but be aware and Candle Science should show photos of what this wax looks like poured after burning - this wax is not smooth. It has craters and other flaws.

But this wax if you have experience with candle making is excellent as blender because it has no additives.
Pure soy wax is also excellent in bath and body products because of this.

If you are a newbie, and want a smooth top and smooth afterburn you need to buy either a paraffin wax, or parasoy which is a blend of paraffin and soy.

464 wax is soy as well. You can pour it for a smooth top easily if you watch your pour temp with a thermometer. Without additives it will look ugly like 415.

Candle Science needs to write on their description what waxes look like and how they behave for the many new candle maker hobbyists that buy here.

heat gun or topping a must with this one

I'm going to have to agree with Cameron down below on this one. It's hard to get a smooth surface with this wax. I've tried various pour temperatures, from 100 up to 140, but get the same result which is a lot of bubbling to the surface requiring a heat gun and starting with remelting the top 1/4 inch and then progressively a little less with each remelting until you finally get a bubble free surface (6 to 8 times), at which point it still takes on quite a bit of "frosting".

Get your heat gun out

Lol this wax is so annoying. Only ordered because my preferred wax had a much longer ship time and needed a re-up for the holidays. This wax had so craters and bumps. Had to use my heat gun probably four times to eventually get a smooth surface (even tossed some glitter on some to help with the cover up). Will not be ordering this again, way too much work.

Great for blending with beeswax

I use the pure soy 415 in a beeswax blend for votives and smaller container candles (around 4-8 oz); it is a softer wax and it burns very clean. I like that it has no additives, so I can also use it in soapmaking. For candles, I add about 6% fragrance which is the recommended amount and it plays nice. I do find that it frosts a little which can be seen in clear containers through the sides, but I add a packaging ribbon around it with the label and then it looks fine. A different color jar or tin would also hide the frosting completely. The tops do cool a little uneven in the 4-8 oz size candles but I have no issue with this in small candles (less than 4 oz). I just hit the 4-8 oz sizes with a heat gun and then they look perfect. Since I blend with beeswax and don't like waiting for it cool, I pour hotter than recommended, around 140 degrees. Overall I am very happy with the wax but it may take a little experimenting to get your candle making process just right.

Works great!

I’ve been using this wax for 3 years. I was looking for a soy wax to blend with beeswax and this is the perfect soy. It was tricky to find the right pouring temperature at first, but after a lot of testing, I was able to figure it out. My candles crack when cooling because of the specific blend I use, but I pour 80% of my candle then let it sit overnight and do a second pour the next day. By doing this, I have smooth tops and I don’t need to use a heat gun.

I bought this wax about a year ago It was pretty bad it made a lot of craters and didn't sell you could probably use a heat gun to fix it it doesn't sweat it could work but I never got a heat gun, and to this day I still have a box of it sitting in candle room I would more recommend ecosoya cb advanced its a better clean top but sweats a bit
