Even though they are all soy formulations, each one is unique. If you aren’t already familiar with a particular wax, we would highly recommend that you begin by referring to our Wax Properties Chart. We also have the Wax Handling Sheets (found below) when they are available from the manufacturer.
If all soy waxes were identical in relation to appearance and performance with all fragrances and/or dyes, the craft wouldn’t be quite as exciting! We are sure to pass along all handling recommendations and updates that we receive from the manufacturers. Because each chandler has their individual vision of their end product, the handling suggestions become very basic to allow folks to test and pour in order to find their perfect combination. Community boards and our Facebook page are good ways to connect with other chandlers for tips.
EcoSoya has announced their next generation of candle waxes. Expect improved scent throw, increased stability and richer colors in their EcoSoya 110 (a great replacement for CB- Advanced Soy), EcoSoya 120 and EcoSoya 130. These new waxes should be released spring 2017. More details from the manufacturer will be available soon.
**NGI has discontinued their current EcoSoya waxes (CB Advanced, CBXcel, CB135 and Pillar Blend)
