Pure Soy 100 Wax
Our Pure Soy S100 wax is slightly different to the other soy wax blends we have on offer.
This wax is not blended with any other elements besides soy, containing no other wax hardeners and no percentage of other waxes.
This variety is as advertised; pure, premium and natural soy wax. The way we’ve achieved a workable wax with just soy compound is by hydrogenating soya oil to create wax. The creamy soy finish from this wax is simply stunning, with an even burn pool, great hot & cold scent throw the Pure Soy S100 wax could be the perfect answer for those looking for a pure soy wax product.
By hydrogenating a by-product of the soy harvesting process, we’re able to use this thicker and tougher compound to harden and stabilise the natural soy wax resulting in a 100% natural product that performs consistently like any great wax should.
This very scientific and carefully measured process leaves us with what we believe is the best pure soy wax available on the market.

- Is made entirely from Soy
- A high fragrance tolerance for a pure soy wax (6-8%)
- Gorgeous creamy soy finish

^ Value dependant on the quality and potency of the fragrance so testing is required for optimum results. This will also vary on type of oil used, i.e. fragrance oil or essential oil, etc. Please note, the standard fragrance load for Scents by LCS Fragrance Oils are commonly 6-8% but variations will be dependent on the potency of the oil.
Being made entirely from soy, this 100% natural product can be more temperamental than our other blended waxes, we recommended trialling of this wax to ensure you’re able to harness the beautiful potential of pure, natural soy.
We suggest you take extra care preparing the pouring conditions of your candles and to always run a test in those conditions before mass producing any of your candle ranges. We recommend Pure Soy S100 for experienced and patient candle makers. It is challenging to master as it is produced without any other additives.
Note that the below instructions are based on our in-house testing, and you should also explore the below handling sheet, and to conduct your own testing with fragrance loads and colouring. (Download the complimentary testing sheet) We recommend a 6-8% fragrance load using our fragrance ranges. We advise the use of a digital thermometer to assist in measuring the correct temperatures of the wax.
Preparation: Ensure that you work on a safe surface, candle wicks are firmly in place, and that the max fill line have been market with a non-permanent marker to ensure that the jars are not over filled. Lay down a few newspapers, as pouring candles can sometimes be messy.
Step 1 – Melting: Wax should be melted in a Bain Marie double pot or an electric melting pot and should not be exposed to direct heat. Melt your wax over a low heat slowly to reach between up to 65- 75℃. The wax should appear slightly dark-golden in colour. Take care not to heat over 80℃ as this can influence the setting and performance of the wax. Overheated wax is very opaque in colour and can result in injury. It can also cause discolouration and crumbling in the final product.
Step 2 – Adding Colour and Fragrance: Add fragrance at 65 – 69℃ and stir gently for a minute. If adding colour, we advise to add it before the fragrance at a warmer temperature to ensure that the colour blends well with the wax, but careful not to overheat the wax.
Step 3 – Pouring: Once your fragrance and colour has blended, and the wax has cooled down to approx. 60℃ it is ready to be poured. The wax will have a clear appearance. If the wax is too cool, it will create cavities in the wax when curing after the first pour. Fill the container and leave 2cm at the maximum filling line for the top-up. Leave at least 500ml of wax for the topping, depending on the volume of candles made. It is important to have the containers at the same temperature as the ambient room temperature.
Step 4 – Curing & Topping up ( If required): Allow wax to cure for 12 hours. Warm up the remainder of the wax using a small Bain Marie to 55-57℃ . Top up the final layer of the candle to the maximum fill line of your containers. Allow to set for 4-7 days BEFORE using.
Please note: To ensure optimal performance, we strongly recommend first-time users conduct a test run on a small batch before using the wax in full-scale production.
