Universal Soy Additive..another noob here =)

Recommended Posts

Geesh....I hope I'm calling it by the right name! :D

Can anybody give me a heads up on this stuff...if it helps with scent throw, and how in the world are you supposed to add it to your wax if the temp of your wax is low? I'm using GB444 and I can't seem to get it to incorporate with the wax. I was told by my wax supplier to melt the GB444 just until the flakes melt...no higher than 150.

Go easy on me....I'm a noob! Thanks bunches!

You can definitely heat it higher than that to melt the USA.

However, 444 already has the additive in it. You can add more if you have a reason to, but just so you know.

Basically it's a food additive that acts as an emulsifier. Helps reduce the frosting and rough tops, lets you pour at a higher temperature, and helps retain fragrance oil. It will also raise the melt point and harden the wax, so there can be a limit to how much you want to use.
