Soya Wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.
Create beautiful candles to light up your home with these Soya Wax Flakes. 100% soya wax, they will be perfect for making candles in containers. This all natural burning wax allows you to use it in a variety of containers, transforming into candles of any size depending on your requirements.
Add dyes and fragrances to personalize your candles to perfection. They'll make a charming handmade gift for a loved one or a sweet-smelling treat for yourself.
These soy wax flakes are designed to be one pour and extremely easy to use. Ensure your container is warm before pouring and allow it to cool slowly. Some 'frosting' (blooming) is normal with soy waxes, especially when using dyes.
Fragrance Load: 6%-8%
Note: Many fragrances can face throw issues with pure soy wax candles. In this case, we recommend using a blend of soy and beeswax/sunflower wax for a better throw. You can also blend the fragrance with Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) or Dipropylene Glycol (DPG) fixative in a 1:1 ratio before adding the same to the wax.
Temperature to add fragrance: Only add your fragrance when your wax temperature is below the flashpoint of the fragrance.
