The Golden Brands 444 soy wax is a container wax with a soy based additive that reduces frosting and allows the wax to hold more fragrance than a pure soy wax. Golden Brands 444 has a higher melt point than 464 wax which allows the candles to hold their shape better in warm weather.

Note: Wax is packaged in flake form.
50 lb. Case Size: 16" x 13" x 13.5"

Produced from US Grown Soybeans!

Golden Wax Update: Golden Brands, LLC was acquired by AAK in 2011. Due to this acquisition the logos for the Golden Wax we carry has changed, but the product remains the same.

Rating - Love this wax too!

I normally use and am a big fan of the gb464 wax, but because of the hot weather conditions here in California I had to find a more stable wax with a higher melt point. I have used the Ecosoya 135 in the past and was happy with it,but decided to expand my horizons. I just made my first batch of tester candles with the 444 and it is simply beautiful! Yes you do need to wick higher than the 464 but the scent throw is amazing! I am absolutely pleased! I will be switching over for the spring and summer months and am elated I found Golden Brand. Please try this wax you won't be sorry. I didn't give it five stars yet because I have to use it for awhile before I do.

Rating - Better than 464

I have been using 464 for a while now. The problems with glass adhesion, frosting and melting at average room temperatures and fragrance oil pooling on top was a huge frustration! I decided to try 444. Awesome wax. My candles are flawless except for heating the tops lightly with my heat gun. I pour at 150 which is what I found to be the perfect pour temp. For new comers, keep in mind the many factors involved in pouring a great candle. Room temp., thickness of glass, shape of glass, is your jar on a nylon cutting board (this does not transfer heat or cold) granite or tile? Are you using dye? Which I do. I found that the Libbey Cylender jar is the best for a great looking candle. Straight sides and thin glass. Unfortunately Candle Science does not carry these! Now, good luck on your next candle!<br /> James Bynion<br /> Mountain View Candles and Gifts

Rating - same problems as 464

I have used both 464 and 444 in the past with absolutely no problems. I chose to order just 444 so I wouldn't have to worry as much about melting in the summer. It's been absolutely horrible. Crystal like formation on the top, lumpy and full of holes. I've tried pouring at 170 (I even turned the burner off and added the scent while pour pot was still in double boiler so as not to lose heat while incorporating). I got on here today to order 464 instead and noticed their comment board had the same issues. Looks like Golden Brands had an issue across all lines. Not sure what to do with the holidays approaching. I guess just get comfy with the heat gun and hope for the best. It's candle season and there aren't many options if I want to stay with soy. Ug

Rating - Love this wax, have used for 4years

I use GB 444 with 1 3/4 oz of scent per pound and liquid and dye chips in all my container candles and my customers love them! My candles have excellant cold and hot throw, my tops are generally smooth (if not, a heat guns fixes that) and they burn well with ECO wicks for smaller jars and LX wicks for the larger jars. I love this wax and will continue to use it. Thank you!

Rating - trouble using in a container

I started to decide that the wax I was using ws at fault. I have been using 444 for awhile for a large 3.5-4 dia container candle and had to get the largest wick and braid them together to get it to melt. Then I would have the problem of the pool drowning the wick and sooting. So, totally fed up, I started to think maybe its the wax!! I use modest amt of scent (less than reccom) and a crayon to color, but have had no help explaining what I am doing wrong, so am considering switching wax.

Rating - gw444

Hello I bought Gw444 soy wax based upon the reviews I had read. I thought this product would benefit better than the previous product that I was using. Boy was I miss lead. Worst most god all full product ever!!!!! I have wasted scent, coloring,contaners, and most of all time in trying to profect this product! It does not matter has to the heating point I use or how long u let it cool before pouring into the container etc. etc. It will leave creaters in your candles or the tops ofyour candles will not come out smooth and Mottling is horrible along with extreme fading that takes place way to quick. I have wasted so much money trying to get this produce to work until I have just throwed the crap in the garbage. When I make a product for resale I expect it to be saleable in which with this GW444 soy wax the product is not saleable. Very, Very unhappy with the misleading information that I have received from the Candle Science Company and from the reviews I have read. VERY MISLEADING!!!!!! I expect my candles to be solid from top to bottom, with coloring to not fade within 2 days of pouring and mottling to be very little if any and smooth top finish.

Rating - Superior Tart Wax...believe it or not!

I have tried wax after wax for a superior hot throw! This beats them all! However you cannot color them, I leave them white, as frosting ALWAYS occures. Just add a hardner and you have the best tart wax. To many holes and mottling for containers. LOve it!!

Rating - Good Wax

This wax works well. lots of mottling on top, but a heat gun smooths all that out...little bit of frosting...overall good wax to work with, once you know how to use it!!

Rating - mostly even burning...

I have made several test batches with the Soy 444, which I selected due to the heat in my home state of Florida, I had a mostly all successful batches with the exception of one. For some reason my "Smoke and Odor Eliminator" batch was not so successful. I used a 7.5 oz tumbler jar (2.25" dia) with an Eco 4 6" wick assembly, for some reason these had "wells" surrounding the wick whereas all of my others had a nice even burn!
