For use in waxes with a melt point of 130°F and above
Vybar 103 is generally recommended for pillars, votives and molded candles.
Vybar will raise the melt point of wax, which makes the wax harder, and therefore holds its shape. Vybar also shrinks wax slightly as it hardens, aiding in mold release. Also used as a substitute for Stearic Acid (Stearin) when using silicone molds. Vybar is a wax additive used to; aid in fragrance oil retention, increase opacity, reduce air bubbles, prevent mottling and enhance dye colors. Vybar enables most wax to hold a higher percentage of fragrance oil. General usage is ¼ tsp to 1 tsp per pound of wax. If using fragrance oil, we recommend no more than ¼ tsp, as too much Vybar will trap fragrance oil. Used in soy wax, it increases the amount of fragrance oil soy can hold, which will generally gives the candle a better throw. Also commonly used in soaps to increase hardness and in lotions as an emollient and thickener.
Note: If you wish to achieve a "mottled" effect do not use Vybar
