We are excited to bring this paraffin container wax to the handcrafted market! It is typically reserved for large manufacturing companies as a private label wax. This wax is not specific to CandleScience, but let’s just say you’ll be using the same wax as some big brand name, high-end candle manufacturers.
The wax comes in slab form, is soft, and slightly sticky to the touch. It is easy to cut up into smaller pieces with a knife, but we recommend wearing latex or nitrile gloves while handling to keep your hands clean. It has a nice creamy white appearance that provides a semi-gloss finish to candles. It does have a characteristic odor that can become a little stronger when melting; it completely disappears in candle form (including unscented candles).
Through our testing process, we found this wax to be a little different than other paraffin waxes we carry. It performs most closely to the IGI 4630, and can be a great alternative to that wax. It has minimal shrinkage, unlike most paraffin waxes, making it a good blending wax as well.
