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
- 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

I love using this wax for my soy candles and it works well with fragrances and essential oils. It has a good scent throw and my customers love my soy candles.
Better than 464
Posted by Donna on 17th Feb 2019
I use to use 464 but once I used C3 I was sold. It is a little harder to work with because of the notorious champagne like air bubbles but it is well worth it. The hot throw beat 464in my testing, even with less fragrance oil. I use HTP wicks with this wax at 7% and 3% coconut oil.
It’s a little tricky to work with but worth your time perfecting

I hated this wax for a long time, but it had great cold and hot throw. It temperamental likes to have a perfect ambient pouring temp and wax temp. If you can bear through working with it The was has amazing glass adhesion, and scent throw. It’s good wax to blend with. You must be patient with learning how to work with it.
Best wax ever.

When I first thought about ordering this wax I was a bit skeptical. When I first started to may candles I started with the Para-Soy Blend which was suggested to use for colored candles. However, I was not pleased with the black sult the candles left behind. Plus, I wanted a healthier candle (if there is such a thing) to offer to my customers. I was a little worried that this wax would not color well but it colored perfectly. You would never know that I'm using soy wax. The colors are bright and vibrant. Yes, it does have to do with the type of candle dye that you use. I am using the dye chips which are one of my favorites. If you are looking for a soy wax that you can be creative with I suggest this one. You won't be disappointed. Oh, and it holds the fragrance well also. A+ for me

Just made some fall candles with this wax. I didn't have issue with it like i did with other waxes. No tunnels minimal frost. you will always have alittle frost with soy wax but with this wax it was very small amount.
What am I doing wrong?
Posted by Shonquil Robinson on 26th Aug 2018
I’ve been testing this wax for a few days now... & I’m not getting the results i want! I believe i followed the directions and i even experimented with different pour temps and wicks. So on my first few candles, i was adding the FO soon as i took the wax from the double boiler, after i added my dye; poured at 150F; no hot or cold scent throw. Then i started heating my jars (hexagon 6oz) at 100F before putting my wax in. Heating the wax to 180F, adding dye, letting it cool to 160F before adding my FO, then pouring at 130F. Still no hot or cold throw, using Eco 12 wicks. I’m a beginner at making candles, & I’m so lost! PLEASE HELP! Idk if i should maybe try some other wax , wicks, FO, different temp... I’m so confused!

I love this wax. It is easy to use, very little frosting and no wet spots. Can't ask for better
Great Soy Wax

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.
