You can therefore be assured of using products that respect not only the environment, but also your home and health.
We recommend using soy wax
This soy C3 wax can be used with all types of fragrances, but we recommend choosing good quality ones. A bottom of the range fragrance may alter the way the candle burns and not provide an optimal scent.
If you use our candle fragrances, don't exceed 70% fragrance per kilo, more is not necessary and can impair the candle's burning.
Filling the candle
Melt the wax slowly, do not exceed 90°C. The melting point is around 51°C. After pouring, leave to cool in an ambient temperature up to 20°-25°C.
With Cargill soy C3 wax, we advise using TCR type candle wick, to be chosen to suit the diameter of your container.
On our site, you'll find a whole range of dyes to give your candles beautiful colours. These are available in powders, liquid or shavings. You add them during the heating phase, when it reaches at least 70°C, and mix well to ensure that the colour is evenly spread. If you also add fragrance, it will be incorporated at the end of this stage.
Cooling the candle
Once the pouring has taken place, you need to leave the candle in an ambient temperature and let it rest for 48 hours before using it. This also ensures that the candle will be very stable!

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.
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.
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).
