This all-natural soy wax from AAK was specifically developed and formulated for melts and tarts. Golden Wax Melt and Tart Soy Wax (AAK Golden Wax 5715-94-77GW), also called 494, has excellent scent throw, exhibits vibrant colors, and releases easily from molds. This wax uses a 100% soy and botanical oil formula that creates a smooth appearance. Due to the high amount of botanical additives, this wax blend is not designed for use as a candle wax and won’t burn with a wick.

Blended Waxes® Pillar Soy Wax and Ecosoya PB Pillar Soy Wax are great options for making soy melts and tarts.

What do I use for tart wax???

I have been reading reviews. I only half half a box of this wax left and can't find Golden Brands Soy or Tart Wax anywhere! I'm an 8 year old company and people love my soy wax melts. Most melts on the market are made with cheap wax and I feel safe when using Golden Brands. Everyone I sell to knows this is the only wax brand that I use and trust. Candle Science please provide a solution for us. Those of us with small businesses that have been ordering through you for years expect to be able to buy products regularly and when something is discontinued please press Golden Brands for an alternative wax! PLEASE HELP. Prices on wax have doubled over the years, shipping fees are killing us, and I can't afford to order products through several companies since the higher the weight the better deal we get when we buy in bulk. Thank you for attention on this.

Hey Spencer, thanks so much for reaching out! The discontinuation of this wax was focused on the logistics of shipping and the manufacturer's decision to not carry this wax in 45 lb cases. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email with details and wax recommendations.

I hope this is still available elsewhere -- seems like Candle Science is discontinuing alot of the products I have been purchasing for many years. Really not happy about this. This is the second write-up for discontinued items that I've purchased in the past. It is really difficult for small businesses that rely on consistent products and pricing to deliver the goods that our customers have become accustomed to receiving. The amount of number crunching and testing we do all goes down the drain when products we use are discounted and we are forced to look for the product elsewhere.

I hope the manufacturer has not discontinued this, because then I know I can still buy it elsewhere. If it was a Candle Science decision, then it was totally a bad call. I have tried too many different types I've lost count and the 494 is the only one that worked for me.

Im very disappointed that this product is discontinued. Ive used this product since ive started my business (in 2019) with no complaints from my customers. In fact they loved my products. Very disappointed
