Product Specifications

Composition :

Based on Rapeseed and Coconut vegetable oils,100% plant-based, with no additives.

This wax is free from Palm, Soy, GM, Paraffin, and Additives and is also considered Halal, Vegan Friendly, and Kosher.

This newly developed wax comes in solid block form and comes packed in 10kg slabs from the manufacturer. For smaller quantities, we break the wax down at our on-site processing center into smaller, more manageable lumps/shards.

Originally developed for high (natural) fragrance levels in container candles, where the fragrance helps to plasticize the wax and reduces its tendency to crack.
This wax works really well for wax melts and tea light candles and performs best with high fragrance loads of around 12%.
The max fragrance load of this wax is around 15% when tested by the team here at Eco Candle Project.

This wax melts at 50 °C and has a recommended pouring temperature of between 55-60 °C but to use in clamshells the maximum is 55ºC or else the plastic will be deformed.

This wax has been chosen by a high-end fragrance house in France, where it was the only one with the desired odor and stability. 

On its own, and in the absence of fragrance, it is rather hard and brittle; so for non-fragranced or lightly fragranced melts we would suggest blending with a softer base wax.

It has been extensively tested in poured t-lights and melts, where the bright white color and smooth crystallization are appreciated.

Molds / Tarts and T-lights:

Originally developed for a project to make 100% vegetable t-lights (it has a very light/white color), with the additional constraint of palm-free and no soy/GM. Has a very low odor/color and excellent stability, so is ideal for non-scented t-lights.

From experience, not every fragrance works, especially benzyl benzoate as a carrier is troublesome, so it would be advised to do some testing to see what works best.

This wax would appeal to ‘high-end’ customers like fragrance houses/candle makers alike that need a neutral odor base wax with very good stability to oxidation.

When tested we found it has a high melting point (50 Degrees Celsius).
 

Recommendations 

In general, lower pouring temperatures seem to be better; for this wax, 55-60C is recommended. It's sometimes necessary to heat the wax to higher temperatures initially to incorporate colors, fragrances, or other waxes. But let it cool down to no less than 5ºC before pouring it into plastic clamshells 

It would be best to resist pouring the wax immediately and let it cool slightly (with gentle stirring if needed) as this will yield the best results with less risk of frosting and surface defects.
