Golden Brands 454 Coconut Soy Candle Wax
Choose a Variant

Coconut candle waxes are newer to the market, and demand by both makers and consumers has been steadily rising over the last few years. We’re happy to make Golden Brands 454 Coconut Soy Wax available to you as an option. This frost resistant wax has excellent glass adhesion and requires no additives. It comes in flakes for easy measuring and handling. And, just like many other Golden Waxes, the soy wax comes from U.S. grown soybeans.

While the ratio of coconut to soy is proprietary, we do know that soy is the dominant wax. This means you’ll experience the same creamy, off-white appearance as pure soy and dyed candles will exhibit similar shades of color as pure soy. So, why make the change?

Coconut Soy Wax Benefits Over Soy Wax

  • A higher pour temperature = less time waiting for the wax to cool
  • Reduced chance of extreme frosting
  • Fewer bumpy, rough tops

Candle Maker 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. For example, we generally never recommend double wicking containers in the 2.95" - 3.29" range, but we've found that 454 in this size container performs best when double wicked with LX 12 6".

Note: Wax is packaged in flake form for easy scooping and measuring.

Great product!

I originally started with soy wax only, and I found that the process was time consuming. This coconut/soy wax blend is seriously my favorite wax to work with hands down. I can pour this wax at a much higher temperature than soy alone and it makes the process so much faster and easier to produce multiple candles at once. The wax burn time is long too and the scent throw is fantastic, which my customers love. Just overall I can't say enough positive things about this wax. I'm so glad I tried it.

Love this wax

This wax is a great wax for beginners in the candle business. I will say that I doubled my scent and got a much better ht than I did using 1.6oz per lb of wax. I also recommend XL wooden wicks with this wax when using tumblers, 8oz tins, or wick it with the CD 22. when I used the CD 18 I had a lot of sooting, and my melt pool was tunneling but I am new to this so I could be doing something wrong to cause this. Other than that I had zero sink holes, no frosting and beautiful smooth tops.

Hi there! Thanks so much for your review. 454 is fantastic wax, and we're so glad to hear that you found a wick that performs well in your candle formula. Tunneling is quite common in candle making, and there are several variables that can contribute, and a member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to help.

Love This Wax!

I am what you might call a beginner at candle making, however my experience has been great, with no real problems. I've had one or two sinkhole problems, but nothing to make me want to switch waxes. My wax products have been pretty smooth and have retained their scent throws wonderfully! I'm sticking with what works for me.

Sink holes

I like this wax, but I am having some issues with the tops caving in slightly. I would really appreciate some help with this! I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I pour at 170-175F, could bumping the table during the cooling process be causing this? Thanks in advance!

Great Wax

Definitely frosts less than the 100% soy I was using and I feel the fragrance throw is stronger.

I only ever had sink holes when I poured it a little too cool or I accidentally disturbed the candle while setting - all human error stuff. Not because of the wax.

This is my go-to now!

I like this wax!

I’ve only been at candle making for about three years. I’ve tried paraffin, and I love the hot throw, but I wanted something cleaner. So I started using 464, and it’s great. I still use it. But I had to try the coconut soy and I must say it makes a beautiful candle. Yes, I’ve had issues with sinkholes occasionally. But I find heating my glass in the oven at 350F for about 5-10 minutes really helps. I pour slowly. This wax pours at a higher temp, so maybe that’s where the disconnect is for some. I myself was pouring it at 135-140. 170F is about right to pour. Overall I like this wax.

Enjoy working with this wax

Being a beginner, I actually liked this better than the 464 Soy Wax. I have had a few sink holes, but reading the comments, could be I am pouring too fast. All trail and error. I have actually had a better hot throw with this wax, and when they are no sink holes, the candle is beautiful!

Finally got it

After lots of trial and error I was able to get the perfect melt pool. When I first started this journey I was having issues with tunneling and sink holes. Emailed Candle Science and afterwards found out that using 8oz 3 inch wide candle tins with a CD22 wick and pouring the wax at 125 degrees was the trick. Very minimal sink holes (if any) once cooled and as long as you burn the candle for 2-3 hours for the first burn then it will get the full melt pool every time. Remember to trim the wick to 1/4" before each burn to remove the mushroom and help keep that full melt pool. I was very skeptical at first with the ratings and reviews but don't let that discourage you from purchasing. Just take your time, do research and pour slowly and this wax is perfect.

Sink holes and bumps

This wax just did not perform well. Sink holes in every single candle (20 total). I have used other brands of coconut soy blends and have never had this issue in the past. I love other wax from candle science but this one wasn't it for me.
