This depends on what you are making. First there are container candles, such as glass jars, tealights, or metal tins. Next, there are candles that you are going to pour in a mold, and remove.
Container Soy Wax Flakes
Your choices are Golden Blends 415, 444, or 464.
Some people have a preference and would never change. Other people don’t even have a clue that different kinds of wax exist. I will explain the differences. They all are made differently and therefore need to be processed differently. I sent complete instructions for all kinds of my wax. All of these waxes are one pour and do not require any additives.
Golden Blends 415
100% pure for cosmetics
lip balm/lotion bars
This wax is 100 % soy wax. There are no additives or fillers. Perfect and safe for any cosmetics. It can be used for containers and tealights. Must be poured at a lower temp in order to get smooth tops.
I recommend this wax for beginners!
This blend is 98% soy with 2% natural additives. This wax is made in Louisville Kentucky with American grown soy beans.
This soy wax contains a soy based additive and is both natural and kosher. This soy based additive enables the soy to be poured at a hotter temperature, helps reduce frosting, and will help increase FO load. 444 has a higher melt point which enables it to retain a higher FO load to give you a stronger scent throw. 444 blends well with paraffin, slack wax, and microcrystalline waxes. It is not recommend to blend this wax with beeswax.
Golden Blends 464 has superior scent throws. It can hold up to 2 ounces of fragrance oil per pound. It is blended with a soy additive to reduce frosting and give you smooth creamy tops. It is a one pour wax. Votive, Tart, Mold, Clam Shells, Wax Melts, etc.
Ecosoya pillar blend
It is awesome, it is quite a bit more money as I can’t buy it factory direct and I have to pay more in shipping to get it. It also cost me $30 per 50 pound case. Golden Blends has a new wax 416 that I am giving a try. I sent out samples to my customers and everyone liked it. I was able to buy it from the factory and have passed the savings on to you.
