Golden Brands GW 464 Soy Wax Flakes
Golden Brands GW 464 is a natural soy wax containing a soy based additive to reduce frosting and increase fragrance load. GW 464 is designed for use in container candles and blends well with other waxes, such as paraffin, slack, and microcrystalline wax. It is not recommended to blend GW 464 with beeswax. The lower melt point of this wax enables it to have improved jar adhesion and helps prevent wet spots. A heat gun may be necessary to smooth out tops on finished candles.
Melt Point: 115 - 120°
Suggested Pouring Temperature: 130 - 145°

I am a beginner when it comes to candle making. I've found this wax very easy to work with. Excellent glass adhesion and fragrance retention. Very low pitting and shrinkage even when poured at higher temperatures.

Right now I only use 100% Soy Wax for my candles. But I've noticed that after they cure and I store then away, they still end up having lots of frost. =( I've done more research on how to reduce frost, but I haven't had any luck. Has a nice hot and cold scent throw. My customers love the Georgia Peach candles.

The only reason I did not give this wax 5 stars is because this is my first attempt at making soy candles.
I melted the soy using the double boiler method. Because the wax was in flake form it was easy to use and add more as it melted.
My candles look beautiful and the scnet held very well. I will be purchasing more.

I'm new to candle making and my first batch of soy candles I ever made didn't make a burn pool all the way to the edge of the jar and also did not have any hot throw. After doing some research I found this brand of soy wax and I am so pleased. It has an excellent burn pool and hot throw. The only con to this wax is potential sink holes and frosting but there are minor tricks you can do to prevent that. Also I know it's not a recommended wax for wax melts but it has an amazing throw. I love this wax and I'm glad I found this company to purchase my supplies from. Very friendly and helpful staff

MUCH better than the IGI 4630 Paraffin wax. This soy wax always turns out with smooth tops, no wet spots, and amazing hot and cold scent throw. No more Paraffin for me, I'm stuck on this awesome soy wax!

This is the first soy wax I ordered to try. So far so good. I don't really have anything to compare to but as of now I'm pleased with the ease of use. My candles have smooth tops and the cold fragrance throw is great and that's not even with the max % FO. Still in the testing phase for the hot throw ( I like a strong smelling candle) but the candle burns great with correct wick size. Also, easy clean up.

I order this the other day and I was extremely pleased with the service I received. The flaming candle company is by far the best company there is, and great customer service they went above and beyond to get me my wax the next day. You all are awesome.
As far as GW46 it is the best soy wax that they make is awesome cold and hot throw. Not alot of messy clean up. Very easy to clean everything in hot water and mild soap.

I have been using this wax for almost a year now and I would not go to any other wax. I was given the GW 444 by another company one time and I was not pleased with it.
I would recommend this to anyone. Yes it is a soft wax but is a beautiful wax for candles and tarts.
