We’re excited to bring this unique paraffin wax to the handcrafted market. Thoroughly tested (just like all our products!) by our in-house team of experts, Paraffin Container Wax (MP-117) is a high-performance, single-pour container paraffin wax that results in creamy white, semi-gloss candles.

MP-117 is packaged in slabs, but it’s soft and easy to cut into smaller pieces. Also, unlike most paraffin waxes, there’s minimal shrinkage. This product requires no additional additives - just add color and fragrance. We recommend this wax for use on its own or as a blender.

  • The weight per slab can vary; however, the total weight of a case is 45 lbs.
  • Cases contain 4 slabs of wax.

To help you get the best results from MP-117 check out our lab notes.

Solid creamy white, strong cold throw (who knew paraffin could do that?), and beautiful hot throw as well with TCR wicks. Very easy to "slice" these slabs; I use a dough scraper and it's like slicing through butter. I followed the recommendations for melt, FO add, and pour temps. Completely smooth top, no sinkholes or dips. My vessels typically don't get great jar adhesion and MP-117 was about average in that regard.
After using my own soy blend wax for years, and not a fan of change, I'm very happy to use up my stock and make the change to MP-117.
