C3 soy, how to make it creamy?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a wholesaler who wants us to produce a soy candle that is extremely soft, almost creamy. I have been testing, but can't get it right. I have only been testing with mineral oil (3% fo, #3% mineral oil). Any suggestions on oils that would work to make it really soft? I was thinking almond oil, etc., but don't know where to find that type of oils.

Thanks for any help!

Personally, I would be very hestitant to sell my candles to someone intending to use them for lotion or massage oil. Someone actually asked me about this. I think there is a person or two on here with experience in that. I think you'd want to use a 100% soy and not C-3. Though the C-3 is advertised as 100% soy, it really isn't, and they don't release what it is, so I would not want to put something unknown on my skin. If you do a search on here for C-3, and another for lotion candles, you should find some helpful information.

Crisco doesn't burn too badly, actually. Soy wax is basically hydrogenated soybean oil, crisco's just partially hydrogenated. :)

Hope I was a little helpful, maybe someone with more knowledge will jump in here. Just be careful about labelling and make sure you've got proper insurance if you go this route.
