What is the difference between professional and ready-to-use soy wax for your container candles?

Soy wax for scented candles in unique containers

C3 Professional Soy Wax is a 100% soy wax that requires the addition of additives such as stearin and others for optimal performance.

The 4130 ready-to-use soy wax is a formulated wax that is ready to be used directly and does not require the addition of any special additives for optimal results.


What is the difference between container wax and moulded candle wax?

Container candle wax is wax that is poured into containers (glass, metal, etc.) and burns in the container, whereas moulded candle wax is wax that is poured into a mould (silicone, polycarbonate, glass, etc.) and then removed from the mould to be burned.

Container candle wax will adhere to the walls of the container, whereas moulded candle wax will create a slight shrinkage to allow it to be removed from the mould, and can also be used to make scented fondant.


Can soy waxes for candles in containers be used to make scented melts ?

Soy wax in containers (C3 & 4130) is not suitable for creating scented melts

The professional and ready-to-use soy wax for container candles is not suitable for the creation of scented melts.

We recommend the use of a wax for moulded candles & scented melts (4120 & Colza).
