Introducing Soyaluna Wax – Everything You Need to Know

Soyaluna Wax orange candle

“Easy one pour finish”

Soyaluna wax is a soy blend and has been specifically formulated to be an easy to use soy wax for the home candle maker. It comes in a white pellet form, making it easy to melt in a double boiler or Bain Marie. This soy wax blend is biodegradable, vegan friendly and packaged in fully recyclable/ biodegradable packaging. No animal products are used in the manufacturing of this wax and no testing on animals has been carried out during the manufacturing process. 

A common factor within the candle making industry is natural environmental inconsistencies that can affect the wax. For example, temperature changes in the environment can impact the way a candle sets, causing a frosting or cracking appearance within the wax. Soyaluna suffers less from frosting and the natural environmental inconsistencies which many makers may experience with other waxes. A major benefit of this wax is that it only needs one pour/ minimal repour depending on usage. This leaves the wax to set with a smooth, rich, creamy finish. There’s no need to put wax by, for an added second pour, to smooth off the top which is common with other wax types. This saves precious time for restocking or experimenting with dye colours and fragrances.  

The scent of a candle is just as important as its light. Soyaluna has been formulated as a finished wax blend and is suitable for the addition of fragrances and dyes designed for the same usage and are oil soluble. The wax offers a great hot and cold scent throw, allowing your chosen fragrance to naturally fill the room. Soyaluna wax suffers less with sweating in temperatures of up to 35 degrees, this can sometimes show on the surface of the candle. There’s no need for further blending or to add any other additives except dyes or UV if you choose to. Its white appearance means that there is no need for additional white dyes unless affected by dark heavy fragrances. All our fragrances and dyes can easily be combined with our waxes to create a seamless blend of vibrant colours. 

Soyaluna has a higher setting point which means it is more seasonal friendly, especially when making candles during the warmer months. The wax can handle high percentage loads of fragrances up to 10%. Testing the final burn performance is recommended as this is dependent on the fragrance type, dye and wick choice. The recommended fragrance load for Soyaluna is 6% depending on the fragrance chosen. 

With Soyaluna’s expertly combined properties, you can see why it is a great wax to start your candle making journey. It’s easy to heat, mix and pour, leaving a rich, creamy finish to a candle or wax melt. Are you ready to get consistent candle making results, why not test it out for yourself?

Soyaluna Wax will be available to purchase from Cosy Owl in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for updates on our website, social media and newsletter.

    I love this wax however I don’t think I got the wick just right. I just found a reply from you regarding a reply to my query about the size of my Lucy Jar to your Karen jar but I’ve lost it.. my Lucy Jar is 25cm circumference..
    my question is would it be the same your Karen Jar as I’d like to buy a wood wick for it which one would you recommend. I also have 20cl jars to find a wick for.
    I also have an ellipse(woodwick) jar to refill and would like a wood wick for that.. I did try your Luna soya and it looked amazing however it burned very hotly so I need to rethink that wick..
    any help on wicks and Soyaluna wax would be much appreciated.. thank you in advance..

    1. Thanks for your comment, Freida. Wick recommendations we can give will differ based on the size of jar predominantly however this is also affected by the type of wax, whether fragrance is used, whether dye is used and so on. Could I trouble you to provide us some more detail to us by email or by phone (01376 560 348) as with this we can help pinpoint what is better suited to the candles you are making.

    How long is the cure for this wax?

    1. The absolute minimum time your made product should be left to cure is 48 hours. We do however recommend sealing the product and storing in a cool dark place for anything up to a week to get the best results.
