Cargill's NatureWax® C-6 is an all-natural blend of soy and coconut waxes. C-6 has excellent glass adhesion, a smooth finish, and resists frosting. It is packaged in slabs that are easy to cut into smaller pieces and allows for higher pouring temperatures which can help decrease candle production time.
This wax incorporates dyes well resulting in vibrant colours in your finished products. Candles made with this wax should be allowed to cool and cure for at least 12 hours before the candle is burned. This will allow the crystals of the wax to completely form giving a nice finish to the candle. Not suitable for mold candles due to the wax being so soft.
Attention: Variations in both colour and texture of vegetable-based wax (soy, coconut, and palm) are common due to the natural characteristics of the ingredients. We make every effort to confirm the wax we sell meets the quality standards and technical specifications set by the manufacturer.
Great-looking tops with perfect sidewall adhesion can be accomplished by following these simple steps:
- Heat wax to between 160 F to 200 F (Do not exceed 200 F or wax may discolour)
- Mix in fragrance right away (Maximum recommended fragrance load is 6%. A 7 to 10% fragrance load may be added with the addition of additives to help control the fragrance)
- Pour into room-temperature jars when wax reaches 120-180 F
- Give your candles plenty of time to cool, and avoid trying to cool too rapidly as this can cause shrinkage and occasional sinkholes to occur.
