Mixing Gel wax with soy/paraffin blend?


Recommended Posts

That’s an engineering feat. 

soy wax is grainy be nature making for a “short” blend. Short, like a short bread cookie, that will always have a brittleness to it. 

I would lean on a paraffin preblend like Igi 4786 that is more rubbery from the start. 

The only way to figure out the balance is with a line blend. Check out the Humblebee and Me site for examples of line blends for beauty products. Basically you do 6-10 or so small batches that change increments in different amounts and see how the characteristics change with each bump.
