415 and 464

Recommended Posts

I may be wrong, but it appears that GB 464 is more popular than GB415. Reading the info on CandleScience, it looks like more people prefer 464. But then I read that 415 throws better than 464. If they're both soy and 415 has better throw, then why is 464 more popular? Does it produce a smoother candle? Does it stick better to the container? :confused:

464 has an additive in it (a vegetable emulsifier commonly called USA by candlemakers), that makes it more resistant to frosting and rough tops. If I recall correctly, it's GB 412 plus additive.

Also, GB 415 doesn't always seem to burn very well.
