Petroleum Wax Blend Overview
The Sono Jell® Candle Base III is a value- and performance-based complement to Sonneborn’s Multiwax® microcrystalline waxes, white oils, petroleum distillates and petrolatums that have a long and proven track record in the candle industry. Sono Jell Candle Base III is a highly refined petroleum wax blend developed to deliver value and exceptional performance as a component in the custom formulation of container candles. Enhanced container adhesion, fragrance retention, good cold and hot fragrance throw and desirable burn characteristics are some of the outstanding benefits of Sono Jell Candle Base III.
Sono Jell Candle Base III meets requirements for FDA as per 21 CFR 172.880.
Sono Jell Candle Base III provides candle formulators with a starting base for container candles that can be used as an alternative to microcrystalline wax, white oil, petrolatum or combinations thereof. Other ingredients can then be added to build a unique candle. Sono Jell Candle Base III works well with paraffin, soy, tallow, scale and slack waxes.
Container candles made with 40 percent Sono Jell Candle Base III, formulated with 30 percent soy wax along with 15 percent scale and 15 percent slack wax, demonstrated good container adhesion, good cold and hot throw, clean burn, single pour and good overall appearance.
Technical support is available to help customers formulate with Sonneborn’s high-purity hydrocarbons.
