NatureWax C-6 Coconut/Soy Wax
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-6 coconut/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

Not good for scent throw, wick problems

I switched to this for the purposes of getting a little bit harder wax, as my previous 100% soy candles used to melt too quick (large burn pools). This wax caused the burn pool to shrink to 2' even though the wick is rated for up to 3.25" width containers. Plus I could barely smell the scent. Bummer.

Very happy after switching to this wax. We had issues with wet spots and jar adhesion in pure soy waxes. This solved our problem. Will continue to use this wax for our line of candles.

We've been looking for a good wax and decided to try c-6. We've been very pleased with this wax. Great glass adhesion, pours beautifully!

This was is obviously mainly soy. I was using coconut wax from another manufacturer . Theirs was 90% coconut with soy additives and I could tell the difference. Coconut wax is soft and creamy this was as hard as a brick when it came. And did not give the same scent throw nor worked well with the wicks I used with my prior coconut blend. I’m guessing that’s why it’s so cheap . Will never purchase this was again

I ordered a couple 2lbs samples to give this a try. Yesterday I mixed 16oz wax with 1oz USA ( universal soy additive) , heated to 200 added 10% fragrance and poured right away.. Nice smooth tops but I always poke a few holes and hit with a heat gun just in case there is air trapped. The CT - outstanding. I'm test burning for HT right now ( only about 16 hours cure time) and I'm very happy with it! I made another batch but used 1oz Soy Modifier instead.. CT is outstanding and I bet the HT will be too.

I’ve been wanting to switch to coconut wax from para-Soy for a while. I was really excited to see TFC was carrying it now so I purchased 2 lbs to try out. From what I understand, coconut wax should be smooth and have excellent scent throw but I had neither. I was told that the manufacturer would not disclose the percentage of soy to coconut in the wax so I guess it’s mostly soy. I heated to 190 and poured at 165. After letting it sit overnight and smoothing with a heat gun, I still had sinkholes and couldn’t smell the fragrance at all while burning. Maybe I did something wrong? But from the reasonable price I’m assuming it’s mostly soy. Bummed.
