We know, we know, we know…. It’s been a long time without EcoSoya waxes and they were deeply missed! But as it goes, when one door closes, another opens, so while it was unfortunate not to have our favorite waxes for a while, it’s awesome that NGI had the opportunity to think long and hard about the next great soy wax products.
EcoSoya has always been the leader in innovative plant based waxes and they promote the growth of natural resources, not depletion. Their new manufacturing process is designed to purify the plant- based waxes ensuring the removal of any potentially present pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified materials (GMM’s). NGI has 100% purity test results for their new waxes posted on their site that were conducted by a their party lab.
EcoSoya waxes are:
• 100% Plant Based
• All Natural
• Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable
• Free of Pesticides, Herbicide residue
• Friendly to animals – no testing
• No Petroleum products
• No Animal Products
• No Insect Products
Ok so that’s all well and great, now let us tell you what you can expect using these waxes from a candle makers point of view….
All EcoWaxes are:
• Packaged in parilles not flakes so it’s easier to dry measure and takes up less space
• Cases are 45 lbs.
• Smooth Creamy and opaque ivory color.
• Holds up to 18% fragrance oil without bleed out (we recommend not using more than 10% in candles)
• Easier to use – heat to 180 degrees, add color and scent and pour. No cool time needed before pouring
• Deeper colors can be achieved using less dye
• Single pour with smooth tops
• Nice jar adhesion in most glassware
• Little or no frosting or bloom
• Clean burning – waxes are friendly and burn nicely with most wicks. In our testing, Papercore is hottest, Heinz coreless is favorite choice, cotton, Wedo RRD and even zinc work too.
While testing has been limited to the small samples we received, overall we love the new waxes and are very excited to be able to offer them to you for your candle production. We look forward to being able to test with many more color, scent, wick combinations along with different candle making techniques not possible with other soy waxes.
More great info to come in the upcoming months.
