 Description  Properties

Golden Brands 444 Wax is an all natural soy container blend. It is processed into wax flake form for easier handling and measuring. 444 has a higher melt point in comparison to it's 464 counterpart. At the cost of having a little more shrink and hardness this wax has much more heat resistance which helps reduce sweating in hotter environments. This makes it the better Golden Brands product in regards to shelf life and shipping. Pouring at colder temperatures is usually quite beneficial for the best adhesion. 444, much like 464 has a high fragrance load potential for a flake form soy wax.

 All Natural Soy Flake Wax

Processed into flakes for easier handling and measuring

High fragrance retention for a flake form wax

Higher melt point and heat retention for hotter environments and extended shelf life

No additives required

It may be more susceptible to shrink and adhesion in comparison to 464

Prop 65 Compliant Product - No labeling required

 Heat until wax is fully liquid while monitoring temperature. Do not let the wax exceed 200°F. Remove from heat source. Add fragrance oil at around 180°F. Mix for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour at 140°F. Allow candles to cure for at least three days before burning for a more favorable fragrance throw.


Take note of your candle pouring environment as colder room temperatures or cold glass may require a hotter pour. The inverse may also be true for pouring candles in hotter environments.

 Candle Makers Notes:


444 is flake form wax with harder consistency and more heat retention in comparison 464. This is better in regards to help reduce fragrance sweating during storage and shipping. This should also improve the shelf life of the product. This harder consistency and higher melt point will cause the wax to have more shrink. This shrink can lead to adherence issues on the sides of the glass and may cause the wax to pull away. When wax pulls away from the sides of a clear glass this is what many will refer to as wet spots or bubbles of air. 464 will have better adherence with less shrink. Sticking with higher fragrance loads should help decrease viscosity and may be helpful in regards to reducing shrink. Soy 10 offers the most heat resistance while maintaining adherence with an oilier consistency, but comes in a slab form. 444 like other all natural soy wax is prone to frosting and may show this frosting more obviously when using color dye. Like most natural flake form soy waxes blooming on the tops, cratering, and a soy clumpy texture may form after burning your candle. Petroleum products such as Paraffin 130 and Vybar may help bind the wax together better after burning and may even help reduce frosting. For an all natural additive, Distilled Monoglyceride has proven to be beneficial in regards to functioning as an all natural binder. Through testing with the ECO series wicks they have shown great performance in terms of hot throw. These wicks may burn hot in deeper vessels because containers may retain more heat as the flame burns deeper. CD wicks have shown a more stable burn profile at a small cost of hot throw performance. Larger CD wicks have been prone to mushrooming. Vessels with a 3 inch diameter have been the more troublesome size to wick. Testing with both the CD and ECO series may be required depending on the properties of the fragrance oil if applicable. For vessels with larger diameters, typically starting at 3.25 inches, double wicking with small wicks has shown improvement in terms of hot throw, balanced burn profile, candle life, and a reduced chance of mushrooming. Like most soy products that is typically a small drift in oiliness from batch to batch with the 444. For the most part this difference has been inconsequential. When transporting this wax in summer heat this oiliness is typically greater as its presence on the outside of the wax is more apparent.

    I actually picked this up by mistake. I meant to buy the 464. But I actually like this one too.
