EcoSoya CB-XceL is 100%
soy and molecularly blueprinted to control polymorphism. It has extreme
resistance to bloom (white frosting) and wet spots, while producing an
excellent scent throw with fragrances. It maintains an even burn pool with
consistent color retention.
CB-XceL requires one pour
and new technology allows for top surface re-melting. CB-XceL has the highest
melt point of all our container waxes, enabling shipment to all climates. CB-XceL has a maximum fragrance load of 12%.
EcoSoya CB-XceL Melt
Point: 125°F Container Candle Soy Wax.
Uses: Container Candles
Fragrance Load: 6% is considered idea but will hold up to 9%
Dye: Chip, Block, Flake, Powder
Wick Suggestions: CD, ECO, HTP, RRD, Performa, Paper Core
Wax Type: Soybean
Additive Suggestion: Soy waxes are considered optimal as are.. You may want to however add UV
Color Stabilizer to prevent fading and chemical color change.
Instructions for use:
Heat wax to 175-190, add
dye (liquid dyes may cause excess frosting in soy) and blend well, add fragrance
and again blend well. We recommend adding scent around 175 for the best
It is typical for wax to
solidify at the beginning of the pour during its first contact with the
container. CB-XceL should have a pour temperature that is high enough so
that when the container is full, the initial solidified wax has re-melted. The
temperature should not be so high that the liquid wax sits more than 30 minutes
before starting to solidify.
Pour temperatures will vary
according to container type and size, fragrance and dye, and the effects you
want to achieve. CB-XceL can be poured as low as 107° F (41.7° C) if the wax
is kept in motion (constant mixing) until poured.
There is a difference in
cooling rates for different container configurations. Cooling too quickly or
too slowly can cause concaving and/or frosting. Large jars, such apothecaries
and large candles, above 12 oz (356 ml), should be poured at about 155°F
(68.3°C). Smaller candles of 12oz (356 ml) or less should be poured at 130°F
(54.4°C). If there are any occurrences with frosting, lower the pour
temperature in increments of 10°F (6°C). Conversely, if there are any
imperfections in the candle top, raise the pour temperature in increments of
10°F (6°C). The goal is to balance the pour temperature to achieve optimal
results. Candle tops may be re-melted as required.
When candles are poured at a
lower temperature (about 110°F (43.3°C)), add the scent at a higher temperature
(about 175°F) and allow the wax to cool to the desired pour temperature.
temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes

For testing purposes, we offer for sale, 10 pound slabs or bags of wax.
*We can only offer recommendations as to what wax will perhaps work best for you but we cannot guarantee any certain wax to work best in any application because of the many variables involved. The only way to determine the appropriate wax selection is by experimentation. Test burning will be necessary to determine the best wax for your candles!
