Natures Garden 100% Soy Wax is an all natural wax with no preservatives, and no additives. This wax is Golden Foods 415 soy wax. Our soy wax is FDA regulated for food consumption, and is also Kosher. Our soy wax comes in flake form, and is very easy to work with. Our soy wax can be used in lip balm formulations and other cosmetic formulations. Our flavorings (not fragrances) can be mixed with our soy wax to create fun, flavored, soy wax lip balms.
Cases weigh approximately 45 pounds each. A skidload is 36 cases of wax.
Sap Value: NaOH(.137) KOH(.192)
INCI: Hydrogenated soybean oil
Directions and information: Heat soy wax to 185 degrees F. Add coloring. Add 1.5 oz. of Natures Garden concentrated fragrance oil of your choice, stir. Heavier fragrances (fragrances with higher flash points) can be added at 185 degrees F. Lighter fragrances (fragrances with lower flash points) such as citrus type fragrances, should be added at around 160 degrees F. Allow your soy wax to cool at room temp until it reaches 110 degrees F. Your wax will be slightly slushy in appearance. Pour soy wax at this temperature into candle containers. Allow to set up at room temp.
Note: Do not get your soy wax hotter than 200 degrees F or it may begin to discolor. It used to be thought that adding fragrance to soy wax at a low temperature would prevent it from evaporating out of the wax prematurely (we used to suggest adding fragrance to soy wax at 130 degrees F). However, our testing has shown us that fragrance needs to be added at a hotter temperature so that the fragrance properly binds with the soy wax. Heavier fragrances containing vanilla can be added to the hot soy wax at around 185 degrees F; while we suggest adding lighter, lower flash point fragrances such as citrus type fragrances, at 160 degrees F. Citrus type fragrances can break down at high temps; this is why we suggest adding them to the hot wax at this lower temp.
Soy Wax has a natural frosting look. In order to reduce this frosting look on the tops of your candles, apply heat to finished candles with a hot hair dryer.
