I know that they cannot tell us the percentages of coconut to paraffin wax in this blend but it would be nice to know if there is more coconut or more paraffin wax? I don't see what the harm in that question is. I would really like to try this wax but it is expensive and shipping is crazy. But I will spend the money if there's more coconut wax in it.

Get the best of two worlds with IGI 6046, a coconut and paraffin blend wax specially designed for use in container candles. With the excellent scent throw of paraffin and the slow burn of coconut, this wax is a great choice for beginner and experienced candle makers alike.
The bright white hue of IGI 6046 allows for truer colors in your finished candles when used with dyes, compared to other vegetable wax blends. The excellent glass adhesion of this wax makes it ideal for clear and transparent containers. It has a very soft texture with a melt point of 120ºF, something users in hot climates or who ship candles in hot climates will want to note. No additional additives are required. This wax was previously named IGI 6570.

Hi! While the manufacturers do not publicize the exact ratios of the wax, based on performance, we believe it to be a higher percentage of paraffin.
I absolutely LOVE the performance of this wax. It has an amazing hot and cold throw. The issue is that it is a logistical nightmare. The wax is much more soft than soy and feels "greasy". It comes in (2) 25 pound cubes. It is very hard to cut/scoop your measurements. When you get going, whatever tool you are using becomes slick. It adds a good amount of time on to your production. There is also a significant amount of wax that remains on the plastic packaging when you are finished. You just can't quite get all of it off. For the price point, I feel like it should be manufactured in slabs to make it easier/faster for candle makers. Also, you shouldn't have that much "loss" that adheres to the packaging.
I started making candles a little over a year ago. I wanted to use coconut wax and started off with Coconut 83. I did find it difficult to wick, but I loved it! I then tried the soy/coconut wax blend and it just didn't behave the way that I wanted. I did my research on this wax - the paraffin portion - because some many people these days think paraffin is "evil" (but it's not!). I read all the reviews I could on the IGI 6046, studied CS's lab test and watched a few YouTube videos on it. Decided to buy the 25# bag of it and...I will NOT GO BACK!! I love this wax!! It is so easy to use. It melts beautifully, pours great, cools wonderful and leaves smooth & creamy tops! There have been a few - like 10 out of a 100 candles so far - that have had minor sinkholes, but nothing severe and nothing that could not be fixed with a very quick heat gun hit. I have not noticed any pitting on top, no frosting at all and a few wet spots here and there, but again, a quick hit with the heat gun and it is all gone. I have also noticed minimal shrinkage and great jar adhesion - that is with both pre-heating my jars and not pre-heating my jars. This wax has worked well with every scent I have tested it with and has been very easy to wick. the only draw back (to me anyway) is that it does come in a big bag and is a solid cube. It is a little hard for me to scope it out of the bag, but then again, I have a bum shoulder and carpal tunnel in my wrist, so it may not be a problem for others. Currently, I am using the 8 oz. Mason Jars and most often the CD 12 wick works great. Happy candling!!
After trying and failing with soy I wanted to stay away from anything that had soy in it. So I decided to try this and after I made my first candle I was in love!! It gave me the hot throw I wanted and beautiful smooth tops (after fixing the sink holes with a heat gun) and the white color is just beautiful. It is a pain getting the wax out of the bag but the great candles I get out of it definitely out weights it. I’ve tried CD and HTP wicks and found that HTP works the best.
After spending a bunch of time and money on soy waxes and trying to produce an AWESOME candle, I pretty much gave up in frustration...I tried numerous soy waxes, from a variety of different suppliers only to have wicking and burning issues and inconsistent performance. I was ready to just give up and count it all a loss.
I decided to this wax a try and VOILA!!! EXCELLENCE from the beginning!!!
I used the recommended wick from the wick guide, followed the directions and I ended up with the perfect candle!!!
EXCELLENT HOT and COLD THROW!!!
Let them cure for about 3 days and you will be so pleased...!!!
Great Hot & Cold throw. Has sink hole issues but the wax performance outways that issue. Highly recommended.
I bought this wax to add candles to my product line. I am so happy I did! It is such a wonderful wax to work with! It is a very soft wax, which lends to cutting it easily; however, the softness makes it a little sticky with handling. This wax melts quicker than other waxes I have used, which allowed me to make more candles in less time. It holds color and fragrances really well. I plan to buy this wax again and would recommend it to others.
Love this wax! Great hot and cold throw. It is similar to working with parrafin/soy blend but BETTER!!! I recommend this wax for container candles.
I absolutely love how wonderfully this blends with pigments. I'm in love!
This wax is awesome! I have used it many, many times over. It is very comparable to IGI 6006. If you are looking for a high quality blended wax the IGI 6046 is for you. It has all the properties of soy & paraffin, but with coconut. IMHO coconut is better than soy in both texture, pour, and fragrance load. I always max out my FO to its fullest. I wanted to post a review of this wax so others will know it is similar to the IGI 6006 but just slightly better. The wax is not in slab form, it comes in a plastic bag and it is slightly difficult to remove. I use an ice cream scooper and a dull knife to literally cut the bag from the wax cube and then scoop the wax out. And trust me, it is worth the work getting the wax removed from the bag. I also recommend removing the entire wax cube from the plastic bag and storing the unused wax in a 5-gallon plastic plaint tub (which you can pick up at any local hardware store or online) I hope that you enjoy this wax as much I do!!!! :)
