Tired of burning candles that are made with harmful chemicals and additives? Do you want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home while also being environmentally conscious? Look no further than LiveSoy Classic.

These soy wax flakes are made from 100% natural soy wax, which is a renewable resource that is biodegradable and sustainable. Unlike traditional paraffin wax, soy wax burns cleanly and produces minimal soot and smoke, making it a healthier and safer option for you and your family.

But it's not just about the benefits to your health and the environment. Soy wax also has a longer burn time than paraffin wax, so you'll be able to enjoy the warm glow and delightful fragrance of your candles for longer.

And with LiveSoy Classic Soy Wax Flakes, the possibilities are endless. You can create your own unique scents by adding your favourite essential / fragrance oils, or even experiment with different colours and shapes for a personalized touch.

So why settle for less when you can have the best? Order LiveSoy Classic Soy Wax Flakes today and experience the joy of clean, eco-friendly, and long-lasting candle making. Your home (and the planet) will thank you.

LiveSoy™ Classic wax is a high quality soy wax suitable for container candles as well as other applications.

Product Overview

LiveSoy™ Classic wax has been designed to deliver a stronger natural soy scent - we recommend testing first to ensure it is suitable for your individual requirements. 

Soy Wax is made from pure 100% soy beans and carefully selected botanical oils.  It has a soft creamy appearance, with a lovely smooth top.

LiveSoy™ Classic has excellent adhesion qualities for jars, tins and other containers.  The containers don't need to be pre-heated, but do need to be at a reasonable ambient room temperature.  This soy wax has excellent scent throw with both fragrance oils and essential oils alike (Max Scent Load 8%). 

Suggested Use:

Melting

This wax has a melt temperature of approx 50C (122F).  It may be heated temporarily as high as 87.8C (190F) if powder dyes are being used, but temperatures in excess of this may cause the wax to discolour.  Before adding any colour or fragrance, make sure that the melted wax has been thoroughly stirred to ensure an even heat distribution.

Using Dyes

This wax works well with most powder, liquid and solid dyes, but to achieve a deep colour, about 30% extra dye will need to be used.  When using powder dyes the wax needs to be raised to a temperature of approx 87.8C (190F) and stirred continuously until all the dye has been completely dissolved.  It is often easier, when using powder dyes, to dissolve the powder dye in fragrance before adding to the wax.

Using Fragrance

The recommended maximum scent load for this wax is 8%. If you use more than that, the wax may not be able to hold the fragrance in suspension and you will get 'wet spots' where the fragrance has puddled.

It is recommended that any fragrance is added just before pouring - at a temperature no lower than 57.2C (135F).  Make an allowance for the slight temperature drop when you add the cool fragrance.  

The optimum scent throw from this wax is achieved when you have a full size melt pool with a depth of 1/4 - 1/2".  Not all fragrances are suitable for soya wax and may lead to frosting or poor flame quality.  If this happens, try a different fragrance.

Wicking

Soy wax needs a larger wick than paraffin waxes, and cotton cored, paper cored and zinc cored wicks should be avoided as they tend to get a bit of a carbon build up which will give rise to 'sooting'.

The general guide from the manufacturer is to achieve a full melt pool extending from side to side, with a depth of 1/4-1/2" in approximately the same number of hours for every inch (2.5cm) of the diameter of the container.

For example:  If you have a container with a diameter of approx 10cm (4"), the full melt pool should be achieved in approx 4 hours.  ie: 1 hour for every inch diameter.

Wick Size Guide

The following wicks are a guide ONLY.  They don't take into account any use of fragrance or dye, which will effect the wick.  Use the guide as a starting point, but Test-Burn and adjust if necessary.


Diameter of melt pool 
 Suggested Wick

25-51mm (1-2")  

Eco 2, LX8, LX10   

51-76mm (2-3")

 LX14, LX16, LX18

76-100mm (3-4")

     LX20, LX22, LX24, LX28

 

Pouring

Pour temperatures will vary according to the size of container being used.  The size will effect the rate of cooling, and cooling too quickly (or slowly) can cause the wax to frost, or the top surface to become concave.

Large jars - 8oz or 235ml and over - will cool more slowly and need a lower pouring temperature to allow them to cool evenly.  Pour these size candles at approx. 51.7C (125F).

Smaller containers - (less than 8oz or 235ml) will cool more quickly, so a higher pour temperature of about 68C (155F) will work well.

If you do experience problems with frosting or shrinkage, try adjusting your pour temperature in increments of 10 degrees.

Allow the candles to cool undisturbed in an ambient temperature of approx. 70F (21C).  The containers need to be at least 1/2" apart to allow for proper air circulation and even cooling.  Leave any lids off the containers for at least 24 hours - longer for really large ones.  Allow the candles to 'cure' for at least 48 hours before test burning.  It really does make a difference!

Soy wax flakes

I prefer the soy pilar/ melts blend but because it had been out of stock I had to order these flakes. They are ok but have to work more harder to get smooth surface when poured which had to smothered by using heat gun a number of times

Soy wax as I ordered thank you. However, I thought it was meant to be flakes and in fairness, 50% or thereabouts WAS flakes. The remainder was lumps – one of which was over 2 kilo on its own! It’s all going to be melted down so it probably won’t be too much of a problem. The only thing is that my pot only holds a maximum of 400g! So I’ve got some excavating to do.
Delighted with the overall service. Delivery was not initially expected until Monday or Tuesday. Bravo!!!

Used for the last time……

I used this wax and nothing else for over 2 years, like someone else said ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’. Well it broke, and when I reached out to try and fix it, I feel I was treated as less than smart shall we say? There was an issue with the wax that only pictures can describe, and when i reached out to customer services, they went to the manufacturers who basically told me they tested the wax (not the bad batch I have by the way) and made 2 candles exactly the way I made them! In the meantime my business is at a standstill because I have a bad batch of wax. I gave them a chance to fix this issue, but they chose to insinuate that I was not making my candles correctly, hence the review which would have been different had they chose to treat me as someone who was intelligent and loyal enough to buy their wax for 2 years straight
