Applications

Church-lights: Also known as ‘Gravelights’, our NatureWax® vegetable waxes are well suited to the production process, and to the long burn-time requirements of this candle type. The waxes can be blended with soft paraffin grades; for a fully vegetable-based candle, the 635-41 grade is recommended.

T-lights: Mid-melting NatureWax® waxes are suitable for t-light candles, often blended with refined paraffin wax to the customers’ own recipe. For pressing processes NatureWax® 635-50 is particularly recommended, and for pouring processes all grades are suitable. NatureWax® C7 has been developed for white t-lights, having a very light color.

Container & scented: A wide range of NatureWax® waxes can be used in container candles, depending on the requirements of the formulator; typical blend ratios are 70-80% vegetable wax and 20-30% mid-melting paraffin wax, and selected grades are suitable for the formulation of pure vegetable candles. For scented candles, NatureWax® 615 and Elite 600 are especially recommended; low odor, light color, excellent shelf-life stability and good fragrance compatibility are key benefits. For general use, NatureWax® Elite 500, available based on segregated RSPO-certified palm, is highly appreciated for its technical performance : smooth crystallization and surface features, no shrinkage, light color and good compatibility with other wax types.

Pressed free-standing: Higher-melting waxes with rapid crystallization are suitable for candles made from pressing of powdered waxes, usually in a blend with refined paraffin in order to achieve the correct properties. Depending on the details of the process used, typically 20-50% vegetable wax can be incorporated into the wax blend.

Others: Vegetable waxes are used increasingly in other industrial and consumer applications. Cargill has a range of waxes suitable for the varied demands of these markets. Interested to learn more? Please see vegetable waxes for further information on our products and applications.
