using a 50/50 combo


Recommended Posts

does anyone here use 50 CBA and 50 CB135 in their formulations? I have been thinking about trying it out but just wanted to see if anyone had some insight on how well it works. My reasoning behind it is because I am trying to get best HT and staying 100% natural. Thanks in advance!

Soy can have paraffin mixed with it, yours does not. Stella was saying soy WAX does not occcur naturally. It, if I am not mistaken, is chemically extruded.

I mix CBA with 415. I tried it with the Ecosoya Pure, but the 415 plays better with the CBA. You keep the beauty of the CBA and get the throw of the 415.

I tried this combo at the beginning of the year and wasn't thrilled with my results. Although my tops were relatively smooth, I didn't like the contracting I was getting. It made the jars look bad....so I went back to straight CBA and am much happier!

Funflames what ratio do you mix your cba and 415, if I may ask? I have been fighting here trying to find the right look with the right scent throw. As soon as I think I have it figured out I make some and they flop. I loved the way the cba looked but it didn't have the hs so I went to cb135 but now I have ugly candles. So I started adding different additives and thought I had it figured out with the coconut oil but this batch was a disaster. Now I ordered usa to try that, I didn't get it yet so thats where I'm at right now. Then I read two ppl on here stating they use cba with 415 and it gives the results I'm looking for. I really hoping to find something that works, I have so many additives now that the only thing I can do with them is sell them on ebay. I'm begging anybody on this board if they could please help guide me in the right direction. I have even asked cs and they haven't got back to me yet. Theres got to be a pure soy wax out there that throws hot scents and looks good.......isn't there????
