NatureWax C-6 Coconut/Soy Wax - 60 lb. Case
NatureWax C-6 coconut/soy wax from Cargill is an all-natural wax blend that is well known for excellent jar adhesion (minimal wet spots) and excellent scent throw.
Melt Point: 124 - 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)
- 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 slab form
- No additives required
- Melt point: 124 – 130°F
- Heat wax to temperature 160 - 200° (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

Had high hopes

For all of the benefits coconut wax gives you, none of those seemed to be apparent with C6. I experienced a lot of frosting, nasty tops, and poor hot throw. Perhaps NatureWax created this as a response to the booming coconut wax trend, however, I think it needs more testing on their end.
Love this wax

I've had no issues. Works very well and has very good hot and cold throws. I'll always use it. :)
I really want to love this wax

Previously I have been using my own custom blend of soy and coconut but decided to try C-6 because the price is good and I like shopping at the Flaming Candle. Unfortunately, this wax is pretty temperamental so far. The tops do not pour very nicely and the afterburn appearance isn't so appealing. I will say, the hot through so far seems to be pretty good so it's definitely got that in its favor. I'm going to keep experimenting with pour temps, wicks and warming my jars. Cross your fingers. If I get different results, I will report back. If it doesn't get better, I hope TFC will consider an alternate coconut wax as I think overall it performs better than a lot of soy (I don't use paraffin or palm wax).

This is a fairly good one pour wax. Tops not as smooth as I would like, and test candles frosted after a month. You could blend a small amount of paraffin for prevention. Plus side very easy to pour and has great adhesion and nice appearance. If you want to make quick candles without a headache, you can’t go wrong with this wax.

This is a decent wax. Similar results as 464 at a lower price. It is a lot more soy than coconut. Will still have wet spots and frosting with this wax. We have had good cold and hot throws so far. There are defiantly better coconut/soy blends out there, but I have no complaints at this price.

I was very happpy when i bought this wax altought has being so stressful using it. I tried to use it but it didnt work well, not scent at all, i wait two weeks from the day i test it and nothing happen. I emailed and did what they told me and nothing happen. The wax still so soft at the point you can stick your finger inside the candle and you can take it out.
