Green Candle Dye
Bekro dyes are considered the best in the industry because of the minimal impact on burn performance whilst offering a stable colour which can be replicated time and time again. Each bag will colour approximately 5 kg of paraffin wax. Soy and vegetable wax may need a higher concentration to achieve deep colour.
We recommend using our Candle Dye at 0.2%.
The image shows an approximate colour once added to paraffin wax. Colour will vary dependent on the wax and additives used. We would suggest to experiment with each dye before a bulk purchase.

Candle dyes - how much should I use?
The dyes are supplied in 10 g bags and should be used at 0.2%, therefore a 10 g bag of dye will colour 5 kg of paraffin wax. Vegetable waxes may require a higher loading. In order for the dye to fully dissolve, it should be added to molten wax of 65°C-70°C, although some dyes (such as red shades) may need the wax to be slightly hotter. We recommend to not to exceed 80°C Please note the colours may differ from screen to screen, we always recommend testing your chosen colour before placing any bulk orders.
