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

- Heat soy wax to 185 F (so fragrance oil fully dissolves)
- 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!
- 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.
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.
- 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!!
- 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!!
- 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!
