NGI EcoSoya Choosing A Soy Wax Manufacturer

As a candle supply distributor, you know that not all soy wax is created equal. So how do you choose a soy wax manufacturer? How do you know that the product you’ll be passing on to your customers is premium quality, and reflects the type of product they want to create?

Here are 8 questions you should ask of any soy wax manufacturer:

1. How will the soy wax perform?

Obviously, the quality of the soy wax you purchase is critical to your customers’ success. EcoSoya soy waxes are ideal for making a wide range of high-performing candles. In fact, our CB Advanced Soy and CB XceL waxes are the only soy waxes in the world that undergo molecular blueprinting to overcome natural variations in soy wax and control crystallization and soy wax polymorphism. 

Molecular Blueprinting® technology sets us apart from other manufacturers and results in a more stable, balanced soy wax. EcoSoya soy waxes also offer consistent scent throw, burn at cooler temperatures, and are generally easy to clean with soap and warm water.

2. Is manufacturing soy wax the primary focus of your business?

For all of our serious competition, without exception, soy wax is an afterthought rather than the core of their business. It's a sideline. For NGI, it's all we do. That's why our waxes are so much better than our competition’s.

When you have a plumbing problem, do you call an electrician and hope they can handle it? No. Likewise, don't call a paraffin company and hope they can do a good job with their soy wax “side business”. Call a company that focuses only on making the best soy waxes in the world.

3. How will you support me as a soy wax distributor?

Our customers’ success is very important to us. When you become an EcoSoya soy wax distributor, we will add your company to our list of suggested distributors so that customers in your region who come to our website will be able to find your company easily, and we refer sales inquiries from your area to your company.

NGI also makes exclusive informational content available to our distributors, including daily updates to pricing based on the soy commodity market.  As a part of our trademark license, we provide all necessary EcoSoya graphics and artwork for you to use, and we offer instructions for the packing, storage and shipping of EcoSoya so you can ensure quality along the distribution chain.

4. Do you offer Direct Customers technical support for making candles with EcoSoya?

We want our Direct Customers of EcoSoya soy wax to have the best possible results with our products. To that end, our website offers extensive technical support to help you answer your customer’s questions and educate them about choosing and using EcoSoya waxes.

Our EcoSoya Wax Comparisons help customers find the best soy wax for their unique needs and goals, and our Candle Making Tips section includes thorough instructions for working with EcoSoya waxes. Because our soy waxes are used in such a wide variety of candles, NGI’s Resources & Support Knowledge Base offers help with candle troubleshooting, the use of fragrances, wick support, and much more.

5. Can you suggest compatible products?

Our Knowledge Base includes tips for choosing wicks, fragrances, and dyes that are ideal for the EcoSoya wax you’ll be using. Through our Fragrance Program, we also provide referrals to fragrance manufacturers that have been tested with EcoSoya.

6. Is your soy wax 100% vegetable, guaranteed?

Unlike other soy waxes on the market, EcoSoya is guaranteed to be 100% vegetable. No paraffin blends or animal products here!

7. Does your soy wax reflect my customers’ values?

As you choose a soy wax manufacturer, you not only consider the product’s quality, but your customers’ values and what kind of products they want to offer their own customers. Our EcoSoya waxes contain no animal products, undergo no animal testing, are Kosher certified, and are produced from a sustainable, renewable resource. They are biodegradable, non-toxic, and contain no trace of pesticides or herbicides.

8. Will the soy wax offer my customers consistent quality?

The quality and purity of our product is our primary concern. EcoSoya soy waxes are analyzed by the batch at least 75 times, and receive a Certificate of Analysis to ensure quality. They’re manufactured meeting stringent FDA standards, and are considered GRAS under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

We believe that NGI’s EcoSoya soy waxes set the standard for all vegetable waxes based on quality, performance and environmental policy, and we work hard to provide support to our distributors and their customers to maximize their benefits from our carefully crafted products. 

When you’re choosing a soy wax manufacturer, there’s no need to compromise - EcoSoya soy waxes offer both premium quality and the support you need to succeed.
