Candle Soylutions  :  Additives

No additives are necessary when using Candle Soylutions soy wax, but we do offer them to those that want to "tweak" their formula….we've always loved the wax without having to add anything, but we don't make candles for a living, and understand that sometimes the environment and lights may demand a little more than straight soy wax for your candle making.

Item Description Detail
Modifier POUND

All Vegetable MODIFIER by the Pound
The all vegetable Modifier is, in part, what makes our Millennium Container Wax different from our 100% Soy Container Wax. It makes 100% Soy a little harder, helps lessen frosting and give smoother tops.
Instructions: add to container wax beads at 3-5% (by weight) before heating. Heat wax and modifier to 150 F - 160 F, remove from heat source and add color (if desired). Let cool to 125-130 F and add fragrance, gently stir thoroughly and intermittently while cooling (without adding air bubbles) and pour at 105-115 degrees, depending on your wax instructions. Percentages will vary depending on fragrance oil and color combinations

1-4 lbs = $4.00 lb
5+ lbs = $3.50 lb



Stearic Acid by the Pound
Derived from vegetable oil, our Stearic Acid is a white, wax-like flake.

Candles: Use at 2-3%...Helps votive wax to hold more may need to use a larger wick if you use more than 2-3% as stearic will make votive wax harder. If you add this to container wax, it will make the wax harder, but also more likely to crack and frost and more difficult to burn.

Bath & Body:   When added in small quantities to creams and lotions Stearic Acid adds a thickness and texture that is not obtainable with beeswax and borax alone and can add a pearlescent quality to cream.

1-4 lb was $2.95 /lb Now $2.50/lb
5 lb+ was $2.30 /lb Now $1.80/lb

About 15 lb left at last update. If we have less than you order we will send you what we have left. Clearance Items are not returnable for any reason. Please visit our POLICIES page for more info.


UV Inhibitor

UV Inhibitor/Color Stabilizer
Add Candle Soylutions UV Inhibitor to your candle making tool box. It helps stabilize colors and slows frosting due to light. A little goes a long way! It's a very fine white powder and should be weighed with a gram scale for accuracy.
Use at .2%.  A pound of wax weighs 454 grams so it's 454 grams x .002 = .908 grams per pound of wax.  A 4 lb batch of wax would be 4 x .908g = 3.63g of UV Inhibitor.  Contains both A & B UV inhibitors.

1/4 lb = $17.50
1/2 lb = $31.00
1 lb = $58.00

  Wax Weight     Add in Grams  
1 lb .908g
