Product Notice: Prices for 45 lb cases of Golden Brands 464, 454, 444, and 415 soy wax have been reduced!

We make every effort to reduce costs whenever possible so you can have the best products for your hobby or business–for less. We're thrilled to pass on these important savings to you!

Golden Brands 454 Coconut Soy Wax brings together the best of two popular plant-based waxes to create a superb single-pour choice for container candles and tealights.

Coconut wax is increasingly in demand due to its excellent glass adhesion, frost resistance, smooth tops, and strong hot throw. This blended coconut wax produces a creamy, off-white candle with a hot throw a bit stronger than soy wax alone.

While the ratio of coconut to soy is proprietary, we can share that soy is the dominant wax.

This wax comes in flake form for easy measuring and requires no additives. Just like other Golden Brands waxes, the wax is made with USA-grown soybeans and is manufactured in the USA.

Candle Maker's Notes: Wicking is the biggest challenge we've experienced with 454. We strongly suggest reviewing the Lab Notes for a detailed breakdown of where to start with wicking your container. Our Wick Guide will also help point you in the right direction!

Sinkholes, craters, and other similar concerns are often fixed by adjusting the pour temperature. We recommend starting with a pouring temperature of 170°F (76.7°C), but you may need to adjust based on your individual maker space. We recommend adjusting by +/-5°F (2.8°C) at a time to find the right pouring temperature for your space and candles.

What’s the highest temperature can i melt this wax?

I really like this wax but i feel like it doesn’t give a strong hot throw and i think it’s because I’m using a melter instead of a double boiler and i am not sure at what temperature to set my melter because at 185F it gets too cold once i pour the wax into my pitcher and I’m not sure if setting the temperature a little higher will burn the wax or if it will affect the wax

What happened

First time using GB 454 Coconut Soy Wax, heated the wax to 185 (as specified) but when I took it off the stove the temp dropped quickly (didn't write down what temp it was at), poured the wax into the container, and received beautiful candles! On the second try - I poured at 170 - because I didn't write down what temp I poured my first time and now I'm struggling with minor sinkholes. Help!! I love this wax. (The cold and hot throw is amazing!)

Cold house, this upgrade fixed the problem!

I upgraded to this wax this month (december), for the last 3 months I was using 464 Soy Wax, this wax did not perform well in my environment - lots of air bubbles (deep ones) and frosting at the top before and after being lit. So, I officially made the switch to this coconut soy blend and I haven't had an issue since. Few notes: we're on the East Coast and as the weather got cooler, the ratio from hot to cold was too rapid for me to continue testing with the Soy Wax, so I completely upgraded to the coconut soy. This is worth it! It feels softer and is creamier and I couldn't be happier and confident!

Nice wax, glad I tried it

Most of my candles turned out great with smooth tops and great glass adhesion, but a few (4 or 5 out of 24) had minor sink holes and separation from the wicks. I tried to fix them by doing a second pour, but it made the wax separate from the glass on the top 1/2” of each of those candles. I would say avoid a second pour and maybe try to fix with a heat gun instead. These are just gifts for my neighbors, but if I were trying to sell them, I’d be really disappointed.

I followed the Candle Science wick guide for my 3” container (double wicked with LX 12), and they burn beautifully.

I Love This Wax!

I did exactly everything sent in the directions (by email) for using this wax and I literally had perfect candles. I certainly will be buying this wax again. No need for my heat gun and fragrance at 9% was strong!
