Soy Container Candle Wax (NatureWax by Cargill C3)
Product Rating: 4.4/5 (As per 24 Customer Reviews)
Also Known as NATUREWAX or C3, this is a pure Soy Wax that is intended for use by experienced chandlers.
Features: Improved Fragrance
Superior fragrance-holding qualities produce candles with a pleasing scent that attracts consumers and stimulates impulse purchases at the point of sale. Plus, they throw their aroma further when burning, which fosters increased customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. Better Value
Candles made with NatureWax waxes burn more slowly and last longer than paraffin, giving consumers more value for their candle dollars. Proven Performance
NatureWax waxes will perform superbly on your existing manufacturing equipment, so you can take advantage of natural candle market opportunities, without major investments in new equipment. Improved Pour
The consistent performance of NatureWax products lets you produce candles with a single pour—for higher output with less labor. They deliver improved adhesion to the container, too, resulting in fewer factory rejects and customer returns. Less Energy
The unique formulation of NatureWax products enables you to produce at lower temperatures, reducing your energy costs from handling, melting, storage and pouring. Soy Candles are cheap Beeswax is a great natural alternative to paraffin, but to get the same results as a soy-based candle, it is very expensive. Soy wax is a new alternative to paraffin wax that is cost effective. Soy wax is also made from a renewable source. Soy Candles Are All Natural
Soy wax is a favorite of environmentally conscious people because it is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Burning of soy candles does not increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere. Soy Candles Last Longer
They can last up to 50% longer than paraffin candles. Soy Candles Produce Less Soot
Soot should be avoided because it is very unhealthy and can eventually coat furniture and walls. Soy candles produce about 90% less soot that paraffin candles. Scented Soy Candles Distribute More Fragrance
The incorporation of soybean oil lowers the melting point of the candles, which translates into cooler burning candles and faster scent dispersion. The lower melting point of soy wax results in a larger size of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick. It is from this liquid wax pool that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere.
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: The wax is pretty good but after burning the candle once it leaves awful frosting that looks like discolored mold. It has some issues with holes forming. The worst part that bothers me is that it doesnt throw scent very well. The candles smell nice but when burning there isnt any smell. I tried mixing their fragrance oil in at 185-190°F. Maybe I will try to heat the wax even hotter to bind the chemicals for better smell. Ive been pouring at 135.
The wax itself smells nice and easy to work with.
Rating: I've made one tester with this product so far and am so impressed. This may be my new favourite. In my opinion it's very similar to the older version of Ecosoya's CB XCel in that it performs in the the same way. Great cold throw after just 12 hours and hot throw was good too. I was in a hurry to test my candle but normally wait 48 hours to test.

Rating: I have been using the Cargill C3 Soy wax for a while now. This product is excellent! As a professional candle maker I recommend anyone to use it. I love the way it holds the fragrances whether it be with Essential Oils or Fragrance Oils. This lovely soy wax also holds the color well. Where the frosting is concerned I always tell my customers it must be appreciated. It is an indication of its purity. Also it is a much safer and healthier product to burn. I also use this product for melt tarts. It is very easy to clean if spilt. I recommend this product!

Rating: Hold scent well but the frosting with this wax is crazy. It seems to be impossible to get a single batch made without TONS of frosting :(

Rating: First time with soy wax and have to say it's easy to use and I like the results! My candles holds scents well... Will buy again!
Rating: I bought this wax because Eco Soy is not available. I wish I could say I like it but I don't at all. Candle tops don't dry smooth even if using a heat gun and I always get major sink holes . It wasn't like that with Eco Soy at all. There may have been the odd touch up and when done with the heat gun tops dried nice and smooth.
I hope this is the last time I need to order this one.

Rating: After using EcoSoya wax for so long, nothing can compare. I bought this because the supplier for EcoSoya wax has been reformulating their wax. With this wax, I get bubbles and air pockets on every single candle. Other than that, this wax isn't bad.

Rating: We are new to the craft and have purchased this wax three times now and have not had any problems other than own personal learning curves with testing. Have found it to be extremely easy to work with an excellent price point. Thank you New Directions!
Rating: I like the wax. I have used multiple different waxes and found this one to be the best. The hot and cold scent throw is excellent. Only issues are with frosting and glass container adhesion, even with heating the container. I explain to my customers the the frosting is due to the soy wax and that I do not add any additional additives. Overall I believe it to be a well balanced soy wax. Also the price from NDA can't be beat.
Rating: I love this for my scented candles, so great to help make the switch to natural candles! Holds fragrance incredibly well, so much better than beeswax at holding scent. We love candles that my husband has even joined in on candle making,, thank you for such a great product!

Rating: Excellent wax with predictable results if you read up on it. Customers love it, so it's a hit with me.
Rating: I thought this wax was a great value! The 4.5 kg bag was even bigger than I anticipated. I experimented with the orange wax, honeycomb fragrance oil and lavender essential oil. The lavender didn't turn out well on its own. But comparing the information provided to the others... is this GMO soy and tested on animals ?
Rating: Melted nicely...but had some issues with it adhering to my containers and also had some frosting issues. I know soy wax can be tricky to work with and I'm new to candle making so I will need to do more testing and possibly adjust my room/container temp to hopefully reduce these imperfections.

Rating: I am loving Cargill's Nature wax - a lot less clouding and separation. This is a great wax and I ship it to Vancouver as no one else carries this wax - worth the extra shipping cost.
