Description

Golden Food's Soy Wax 444- 1 Case  

A case of Golden Brand's soy wax is 50 pounds.

Details:  Golden Brand Soy Wax 444 is a container candle soy wax that has a natural soy based additive that helps the candle absorb more fragrance oil and helps to reduce soy wax frosting.  Golden Brands 444 soy wax will melt more slowly than Golden Brands 464 soy wax due to its higher melt point.  This soy wax is also used by some of our customers for candle tarts. The  soybeans used to make this soy wax were grown in the USA! 

Directions and information:  Heat soy wax to 185 degrees F.  Add coloring.  Add 1.5 oz. of Natures Garden concentrated fragrance oil of your choice, stir.    Heavier fragrances (fragrances with higher flash points) can be added at 185 degrees F.  Lighter fragrances (fragrances with lower flash points) such as citrus type fragrances, should be added at around 160 degrees F.  Allow your soy wax to cool at room temp until it reaches 110 degrees F.  Your wax will be slightly slushy in appearance.  Pour soy wax at this temperature into candle containers.  Allow to set up at room temp.

Note:  Do not get your soy wax hotter than 200 degrees F or it may begin to discolor.  It used to be thought that adding fragrance to soy wax at a low temperature would prevent it from evaporating out of the wax prematurely (we used to suggest adding fragrance to soy wax at 130 degrees F).  However, our testing has shown us that fragrance needs to be added at a hotter temperature so that the fragrance properly binds with the soy wax.  Heavier fragrances containing vanilla can be added to the hot soy wax at around 185 degrees F; while we suggest adding lighter, lower flash point fragrances such as citrus type fragrances, at 160 degrees F.  Citrus type fragrances can break down at high temps; this is why we suggest adding them to the hot wax at this lower temp.

Soy Wax has a natural frosting look.  In order to reduce this frosting look on the tops of your candles, apply heat to finished candles with a hot hair dryer.

Love this wax! Review rating is 5 stars

5 Golden Foods Soy Wax 444- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Florida

I chose the 444 soy wax because I live in Florida and have to consider the heat (this wax isn't as soft as the 464), and also because I wanted to have the option of putting in the maximum 12% fragrance load. I'm a newb, but one who likes to research things very thoroughly before beginning. So, I wasn't unaware of the pros and cons of the other waxes. This soy turns out great, even for someone inexperienced. I do heat my jars on 170 degrees in 1/2" of water for a few minutes, and once in a while might have to lightly hit the tops with a heat gun, only because I'm a perfectionist, they're pretty smooth after pouring. The scent throw compared to another wax would be hard for me to judge since I've only used one other soy product which I suspect was a 415. It was a craft store version and was very lumpy on top. But I will say, although some FO's were lighter, I've had to move a very small 12 oz. candle out of the room when it was burning with a stronger FO because it was pretty intense, and had others that were very powerful lit or unlit, so I think the hot and cold throw are fine. To me, if a fragrance isn't strong, why bother? That speaks to how strong the hot throw was for those amazing fragrances and this wax.

GOOD, BUT NOT BEST Review rating is 4 stars

4 Golden Foods Soy Wax 444- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from Northern Illinois

We normally use NG 100% Soy Wax for our candles & melts. I love the NG 100% Soy Wax. It is easy to work with, but the "only" issue I had with it {which is not really an "issue"} is that when it dries in a warmer it has a rough "frosting" look to it. {Which I was well aware of before we purchased it.} It was not really that big of a deal, but I wanted to try a different/similar wax to see if it would work just as well for our candles & melts, only when it would dry, it would dry "smoothly". So I read the reviews of all of the waxes available. {Thank you all for your reviews by the way, they are extremely helpful} Based on the reviews of the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444, we decided to give it a try. I poured our candles/melts and once they were completely cured, I compared them to our NG 100% Soy Wax candles and melts. Right away, I noticed that the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444 was not as strong of a scent as the NG 100% Soy Wax. It smelled like I only used "half" of the fragrance that we normally use. Well, because I am completely consumed with multiple fragrances from sun-up until sun-down most days, I thought maybe I was imagining things. We have 6 designated "testers" for our products. So we let them know that we are testing a new soy wax and gave each of them full sized samples to try and the usual checklist to fill out and return to us. It was unanimous, they all commented that the scent in the Golden Foods Soy Was 444 was not as strong as the NG 100% Soy Wax. We also had several customers ask us if we had made any changes to our candles/melts because they also noticed a difference. A few of them thought we cut back on the amount of fragrance oils. {not good} So that was enough to convince us that we need to switch back to our original NG 100% Soy Wax immediately. I did give it 4 stars though. It really is a great wax to work with and I love how it dries "smoothly", not really sure what we could use this for, {unless we double up on the fragrance oils....which could get costly} but I will do a little more research to find other uses for the Golden Foods Soy Wax 444. Just not for our candles and melts.

Reviewer: from Michigan

I absolutely love this wax because I can use it for container candles and wax melts. The scent throw is outstanding for both hot and cold. My customers even noticed a huge difference when I switched to this wax from 100% soy I was using. I use the maximum scent load for this wax with a CD12 wick in both my 10oz status jar candles and 8oz mason jar candles. I pour at about 115(my jars are slightly heated in the oven before I pour)and they turn out beautifully every time! For my wax melts I pour at about 110(I lay a heated towel down on my workspace, then lay out my clamshells or tart molds and pour)and they also turn out beautifully!

Reviewer: from Illinois

I ordered this wax recently and I'm in love with it. I make whipped candles, layered candles, and mason jar candles. This wax is perfect. If you pour it at a cooler temperature, I pour mine around 110, the top is perfect, no cracks, holes nothing. It's soy so natural, no soot, washes off easily, perfect. Thanks for supplying this.

NO HOT SCENT THROW Review rating is 1 stars

1 Golden Foods Soy Wax 444- 1 CASE

Reviewer: from IL US

I bought this wax because I could make tarts as well. If you are looking for a container wax I have nothing but bad luck with it. I have tested several candles and followed the directions and still nothing all I get is the smell of hot wax with no scent and it has a good cold throw that is about it. This wax is AWESOME for making tarts the throw is amazing hot/cold. I will be going back to the 415 wax.

Reviewer: from Streetsboro, OH US

Very happy with this wax, some mottling at the top of bigger candles, but, the way the color shows with this wax is wonderful. We would recommend this was to all. Good burn time and holds the scent in tarts too.
