Also known as EcoSoya CB-Advanced, this Container blend is made from pure 100% soybeans and carefully selected botanical oils. EcoSoya™ CB-Advanced Soy has extreme resistance to bloom (white frosting) and “wet spots”. It contracts slightly to produce a uniform beautiful appearance, requires only one pour, has good scent throw with both fragrances and essential oils, and a creamy white appearance.
Benefits of EcoSoya: • Made with pure, 100% natural soybeans. • Longer, cooler and cleaner burning without soot buildup. • Made in the USA with domestically grown crops. • Renewable sustainable resources requiring plant growth. • Biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides. • Produced containing NO Genetically Modified Material. • Easy to clean up with soap and hot water eliminating solvents. • Manufactured meeting FDA and Kosher standards. • Very stable allowing for long shelf life. • Not subject to animal testing.
Note: Do not use copper or brass tools or containers when working with soy wax, as the copper and brass will discolor the wax.

Rating: Very good quality wax that I get consistent, great results with whether I'm adding Fo's or Eo's. Customers are happy, cleanup is a cinch and it's carbon neutral. What more could you ask for? I just hope they keep on offering the 50lb size.
Rating: I melt down about 7 pounds at a time, it takes about 15 minutes for it to become completely liquidity. That's the only downfall. I do love how it holds the fragrance oils, and I also love the smell of the wax itself! Very easy to work with, I really recommend this to everyone!

Rating: I have had more success with this Wax than with any other. beautiful texture for container candles & minimal frosting or wet spots as well it works amazing with fragrance oils which i only purchase through ND. I am really loving the candle making products from ND.
Rating: This is my first time working with wax to make candles. This wax is very easy to work with and the candles turn out beautifully. The cold throw is perfect, but like others have posted, the hot throw is very weak. I use FO. For those who get a great hot throw, what temp do you add the fragrance and how long do you stir it for once added. I have read 2 minutes so it mixes properly. Also, I have made tealights with FO and without. The ones without smell like kerosene. Has anyone else had this problem?
Rating: I love this wax! I make soap - not candles so I am just in the learning stages of candle-making but I've been having good success with this brand of wax. While researching candle making I ran across a couple of ads for used candle supplies and the stuff just looked impossibly messy, completely coated with paraffin that would take a sand-blaster to burn off. With the Ecosoya wax, a plastic scraper, dish detergent and a little hot water is all that's needed. No messy molds, no drops of wax all over my kitchen. It's a dream.

Rating: I'm just getting used to how this wax works but I can say that it has been extremely to work with. Clean up is a breeze.
I made 2 identical container candles with different scents and they have performed perfectly. Finding the right wick is important but once you do, this wax performs very well. Another great New Directions product.

Rating: I am very careful about adding FO's or EO's below their flash point. And still I find the hot scent throw with this wax is not great, after trying several different scents. I also had problems with some batches cracking, even though I let them cool naturally at room temperature. I just switched to the Ecosoy CB-135, and I find it is a much nicer wax to work with, and has a better sent throw. I wouldn't buy this one again.

Rating: Love this product.
It's the only wax I'll use! Great throw.

Rating: FOR THOSE PEOPLE ASKING THE SAME QUESTION!! THIS PRODUCT WORKS BEST WITH FRAGRANCE OILS. A LOT OF ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE A LOWER FLASH POINT AND BURN OFF. IT IS NOT A PROBLEM WITH THE WAX, IT IS THE FLASH POINT OF OILS.....GREAT PRODUCT.

Rating: This is a great wax....very easy to work with, to clean up and paired with the right scents it creates a beautiful eco friendly candle. I called this morning needing a box and was able to pick it up in the early afternoon. Very much appreciate the personal touch at NDA. The prices are great.

Rating: I just made a batch of candles with this and it stuck to the glass jars very well and gives a great hot and cold scent! Excellent product! I will be buying again
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: Easy to use. Easy to clean up if you spill (I spill everywhere when creating). And holds scent and burns fantastically. Love that it's an eco soya wax that is kept up to standards! Thanks NDA for selling such an eco-friendly product at a great price!

Rating: I like how easy this melts and clean up is easy but i can not no matter what i do get the scent to actually work when its burning the smell awesome not lite but once lite they don't send out scent. What am i doing wrong?
Rating: I buy the wax and make candles in glass containers Nda (Cube Glass Candle Container 225 ml). The problem is that retracts into the wax container and does not stick well to edge.
I sank several different temperatures (100, 130, 145, 155 degree F) and even warmed my containers before pouring and the same problem persists.
I do not know if anyone can help me?
J'ai acheter cette cire et fait des bougies dans des conteneurs en verre NDA ( Cube Glass Candle Container 225 ml) . Le problème est que la cire se retracte dans le contenant et ne colle pas bien aux parrois .
J'ai coulé à plusieurs températures différente (100 , 130, 145, 155 degré F ) et même réchauffé mes contenants avant de couler et le même problème persiste.
Je ne sait pas si quelqu'un peut m'aider?
Rating: This wax is excellent in it's way of form and texture, but it has a non-existent hot throw in candles :( The cold throw is nice, but without an excellent hot throw, there's no point in scented candle use. If New Directions started carrying Golden Brands 464 wax, I would buy it up in truck loads! There are tons of fantastic reviews for this brand.
By:Armando, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2012
Rating: I really love this product. It is the first candle wax I have tried and I don't plan on trying any others. I do agree with a previous comment that the fragrance can be hit and miss and experimenting is key.
Rating: This is great for dipped plush. Scent holds great and is very easy to work with.
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010
Rating: I have tried other soy wax but this is is the best. One pour, easy to clean. Good scent throw with fragrance oils, with essential oils it's a hit and miss. You have to experiment a lot.

Rating: I am a newbie at candle making. This wax is very easy to work with. On my first attempt, I made tri-colour candles. Their look exceeded my expectations. I also added Pine Commercial essential oil purchased from NDA, but found there was very little scent throw while candles were burning.
I will definitely continue using this blend. However, I won\'t put any essential oil into it as it is just a waste of money.
New Directions Aromatics Response:
There are a lot of factors that affect how a candle burns. If the same wick and wax was used and the only difference is the addition of the essential oil than the problem is that the flash point of the commercial pine is too low (42 deg. C). Flash points play a big part in candle making. The lower the flash point, the faster the essential oil and the scent will burn off. The solution is to choose essential oils with higher flash points and /or use a blend of essential oils that contain a fixative and bottom note.
Rating: Wow!!! J'adore cette cire. Elle fond à une vitesse incroyable, est facile d'utilisation, se nettoie vraiment bien et est très abordable! En plus, elle se mélange bien avec pratiquement tout (couleur, fragrances, huiles essentielles, etc.). Super bon choix!

Rating: Hi Folks,
I agree with everyone, this is a great product to work with. I am not getting much scent however and seem to be using a lot of essentials to achieve the scent while burning. Any suggestions?
I love NDA!
Rating: I love this soy wax very easy to use and quick melt.
A 4.5 kg makes 20 250 ml candles.
Great price too.

Rating: The easiest wax I've worked with. Lovely opaque white colour, easy to pour and awesome price. Will for sure continue to get all my candle waxes with ND.

Rating: This wax is excellent! I love working with it! Event thought it makes great container candles, when I accidently poured some on my hands, I realised it was also very soothing and mosturising to the skin! Could it accually be used in cosmetics?? I wonder!!
By:Ariane, Havre-Aubert, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Feb-2006
Rating: This wax is absolutely great!! It really is a must to read the instructions, every wax seems to have different care instructions. I had read somewhere else to bring the temp up to 180 to add dye and fragrance. This doesn't work so well with this wax. It's almost like the fragrance burnt away or something because it doesn't have much smell compared to another batch that wasn't heated so high.
Again thank you New Directions, you really are at the top of the chain for candle & soap making supplies. It is really nice to be able to buy most of everything from one place. We always welcome your new products.
