A bowl of 444 Soy Wax Flakes
Choose a Variant

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.

If you follow directions this wax works really good. I wanted to use a wax that could hold up better in shipping to hot climates as the back of shipping trucks can get extremely hot. Took a little bit to figure out the right wicks for it, but once I figured that out, the cold and hot throw are great!

I recommend it

I like 444 wax because it is adaptable to the climate of Puerto Rico. It doesn't melt at high temperatures when I'm in the markets or put it in the car.

Very consistent and good finish

I’m very new to candle making but I’ve been meticulously following guidelines to make sure I use this wax properly and it’s only ever given me a smooth finish with minimal frosting! When the candle has been lit and then cools, it leaves pitted spots and a bit of frost but I’ve come to learn that is to be expected with a natural soy wax. I live in Florida and I haven’t had issues with melting or sweating yet.

Summer Stress Be Gone!

I just added this new wax to my store at the beginning of the summer and I am very happy! With the summer heat comes my stress. No amount of ice packs or cool packaging makes my fear of “I hope they arrive in tact” go away. Switching to this wax made such a difference as far as how the wax performed in my clear glass jars! I was wondering…. does anyone know if this also helps prevent winter frosting ir if 464 is best?

Almost love jt

Just started using this wax and the scent throw is amazing! however after making it, while i'm letting it cure, some candles show frosting at the top like little cracks almost so the top is not smooth. and after lighting it, when i blow it out & it dries, i experience a lot of frosting and tunneling as well. if i could get some advice on this & how to fix it, if it works, i would totally keep using this one!

Superior when blended!

We use 444 blended with a parasoy mix and it produces a superior candle — the hot throw, even burn, and smooth-as-glass tops of the parasoy, and the stability and high melt point of the 444. No smoke, no frosting. Gone are the days of pitted, uneven tops and weak hot throw.

I absolutely love this wax!

Once you figure out how to use it, it’s amazing! Literally so prefect and such a strong HT as well! It’s also good for areas that’s ridiculously hot like Florida! I’m not worried about these candles melting when I ship.

What went wrong?

I used this wax and it’s unsticking from the wall of the jars. I had to go back to 464. Never buying this again.
