Good wax but was semi melting when received

The wax is easy to work and gives good throw. However, when I received it, it was very soft. I could easy break the slab with my hand (which is not my experience with other wax). I am now not sure how should I store it and how will it do when shipping the candle.

I mix this wax with 100% soy wax, 50/50 ratio and i absolutely love the CT/HT. I use 10% F.O. and the 85 wicks from Makesy.

Booster wicks didn’t work like i predicted so cotton wicks it is for me.

Wicking Issues

I like the wax for my candles but I'm struggling with my candles melting pool. They are tunneling. I have the recommended wick. I went back and read the lab notes and see that it suggest double wicking for jars that are 3.2" or larger. My question is, what wick would be used to double wick this size candle? It also seems that the flame for this wick is high and there is soot from the flame. I tested my candle with a half jar before making more and there wasn't an issue but with a full jar there is. I'm going to have to redo 20 or more candles and post-pone orders until I can get this corrected. Immediate help is needed.

Love this wax.

I love how easy this wax is to use. I use to use 4627 and I must say the Ht and CT is side by side . My candles hot throw and cold are amazing . When I use color chip my colors are very vibrant with just a little. I don't mind the messiness to make candles this amazing. Thank you CS!!!

Also in regards to my last review - I did not see many (if any) reviews for anyone using color so these reviews are not relevant to me as the adhesion and repairs for sink holes are not a big deal. As for the soot I have read a ton about - yes, I do see that too which leads me to believe there is way more paraffin than one would think in comparison to the coconut wax. I wish there was a wax that did well with color because they are so fun to use - if I find one I will gladly report back :)

Not digging' it :(

IGI 6046 Coconut/Paraffin Blend Wax 10 lb Slab

Having been creating great candles for 20+ years I thought I would give color a go as well as try some new wax. I read so many reviews on this site for the various options and after communicating with CS directly, gave this a try and I have to say I am not at all happy (glad I only got 10#). While I am happy that there is almost no frosting, the adhesion is 50% at best AND what I am most unhappy about are the sinkholes! EVERY candle has a hole next to the wick right down the middle! I do all of the "things" - stir gently to remove air bubbles, tap each jar lightly to break any air bubbles in each jar AND I even stick a skewer in while the wax is still liquid and move it around. I center the wicks, etc. The color is ok - not great.

I also tried EcoSoya CB-Advanced Soy Wax 11 lb Bag based on reviews and suggestions and do not like this AT ALL for either color, no color or scent throw whether hot or cold.

At this point I am bailing :(. I had high hopes for finding a great wax that would take color, snell nice and not look like it belonged in the dollar store at best. Good thing I tested.

It’s alright

I realized this blend has a lot more paraffin than coconut. It’s alright. Weak CT/HT for me. In my humble opinion, golden soy wax 415 mixed with other soy wax works a lot better. I purchased this igi 6046 bc of so many good reviews, but if you’re leaning towards to clean ingredients, golden wax 415 is a wonderful wax to use. Safer to burn.

Must have!

I was skeptical at first. I bought a 10 pound slab and after my first candle i fell in love! The throws are exactly what I was hoping for and more! Very easy to use. I only had minor issues with soot but compared to the amazing throw and slow burn I’ll take it! I have sold more candles now than ever! I’m so heartbroken it’s currently out of stock. I don’t know what else to try in the meantime!

Hi there, we're so glad to hear that you've been enjoying this wax. If you're looking to stick with a paraffin-natural wax blend, we'd recommend taking a look at the IGI 6006 Paraffin/Soy Blend Wax or Blended Waxes Paraffin/Soy Wax (BW-910) in the meantime!

Going well so far

I think this wax is it!!. Like people say great CT and HT. I have tested 15 different wick combinations. I saw so many people mention the soot. Wish you guys would post your answers for everyone to see, I don't understand why they have to be a "private" response when we all are trying to accomplish the same thing. So, back to soot, you have had to figure out what the best wick is for this wax, 4" height jar with a 3 1/4" to 3.5" jar opening? Or at least close to it. Thanks so much!!

Great throw

From the beginning I knew I wanted to use coconut wax. I tried coconut 83, coconut apricot, coconut soy, and I even tried my hand at blending my own. But couldn't get the throw I wanted. I live in an area where people expect a small 2oz candle to fill 3000sqft. I know, ridiculous expectations. But I was determined to get a throw that was comparable. With my current coconut wax being out of stock I decided to try 6046. To my surprise I am getting the throw I wanted from the very beginning. I've tested 5 of the 200+ fragrances I have with this wax and the throw is amazing at only 8%. I did some research on wicks while waiting for my first delivery of this wax. Seems like CD wicks are the go to. I however don't like CD wicks. I choose a wick that I was happy with in my Aura jars and went from there. When properly wicked there isn't any soot and jar temp is well below 140 even during powerburns. Maybe after 19 months of testing I finally found a wax, jar, wick combo that works. Just wish Candle Science would carry my wicks so I had a one place to order from. I'm going to be buying another case immediately.
