    NatureWax C-3 Soy Wax Flakes

    NatureWax C-3 soy wax from Cargill is an all-natural soy wax blend that is well known for excellent jar adhesion (minimal wet spots), minimal frosting, and excellent scent throw. We have found that NatureWax C-3 produces the best aesthetic candles among the various soy waxes we have tested/carry and is very easy to work with.

    Melt Point: 125 - 130°F

    Suggested Pouring Temperature: 120-165°F 

    Advantages of using C-3 soy wax:

    • Typically requires only a single pour (tops can be smoothed out with a heat gun if necessary)
    • Formulated to minimize frosting when used correctly
    • Strong hot and cold scent throw
    • Typical fragrance load is 6% or less (fragrance loads up to 7-10% are possible with the addition of additives)
    • Smooth and creamy appearance
    • Excellent jar adhesion
    • Comes in flake form
    • No additives required

    Basic Guidelines:

    • Melt point: 125 – 130°F
    • Heat wax to temperature 130 - 190° (caution: heating wax above 200° may cause wax discoloration)
    • Add dye as needed and mix thoroughly
    • Add candle fragrance oil as needed and mix thoroughly (fragrance oil should be added just before pouring to prevent fragrance oil from evaporating)
    • Pouring temperatures should typically be around 120° to 165°, though experimentation is recommended to determine optimal pouring temperature
    • When pouring melted wax into containers, the containers should be at room temperature or slightly warmer
    • Allow candles to cool as slow as possible to achieve good jar adhesion and create a smooth finish

    1. Great Soy Wax 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 31st Mar 2018

      I haven't used other waxes, but as a beginner I've had an amazing time with this wax. It holds scent well. Like all soy waxes though color will frost, but there really isn't a way around this. No one has really seemed to mind the frosting, and if they do I recommend they get it uncolored.
      I use these for candles and melts. They are fine for melts, but the wax is a bit soft. Again, no one has complained about it though.

      Made 18 candles yesterday and everyone turned out great. Not one issue. This will be my wax from now on.

    3. Great product 5 Star Review

      This wax is very easy to work with and holds fragrance very well and a good scent throw. I would definitely recommend this.

    4. Great results 5 Star Review

      I enjoy making candles with this wax. This is an all natural pure soy wax, so you have to watch your ambient room temperature as well as pour temperatures. Yes, this wax does take some patients and testing, but once you get it down this wax is the best.

    6. WAY Better Than My Old Wax! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 18th Jan 2018

      I had been using a parasoy blend that has since been reformulated, and I wasn't thriled with the reviews I'd been reading about it. I thought I'd give C-3 a try and, so far, I love it! I use it for wax melts, and the cold and hot throw has been excellent.

    7. VERY HAPPY SO FAR 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 6th Jan 2018

      I have made several candles with this wax so far. I'm new to candle making, but am very happy with my results thus far. I used this wax in an 8oz mason jar with the Premier 760 wicks, and used the Fierce (type) fragrance oil (1oz per pound). As long as you slow down the cooling of your candles as much as possible you will have good results. I had wet spots on the first few candles I made because the room I put them in was too cold I believe. The most recent candles I made were put into a room with a heater and I left them to cure on top of a piece of Styrofoam and had GREAT results with NO wet spots, and the tops are perfectly smooth (no second pour needed)! They look professional which is what I was looking for. I will give these out as gifts to my friends and I think they'll love them! So glad I found The Flaming Candle! :)

    8. Not Bad 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 8th Nov 2017

      My only issue with this wax is instead of sink holes, i have a cracked ring on all my candles about an inch around the wick. I'm not sure if it's the wick that causes this or what. They are extremely hard to fix, almost impossible, for after I heat the top and it re-cools, the ring is now frosted.

    9. Good wax 4 Star Review

      This is my first time using this particular soy wax but its greatnjust like the others i used from here.

    10. Amazing results! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 17th Sep 2017

      I have to say this is the absolute best soy wax that I have used so far. I've only ever used 464 wax, and that has always been guaranteed to give me sink holes. This wax never disappoints. I never have to worry about sink holes again and my candles are always guaranteed to smell amazing!! I'm in love!!! ♥♥♥
