Liked Golden Wax 464? You're going to love its European cousin!

Manufactured in Sweden by the wax giant AAK, this container candle wax offers the same basic formulation as the popular Golden Wax 464 made in the US, but with enhanced performance.

Crafted from responsibly sourced soybean oil, European Golden Wax 464 is both GMO-free and vegan-friendly, and AAK, known for its strong commitment to sustainability, ensures that this wax is produced with the utmost respect for the environment and the people involved.

In close collaboration with AAK, we have fine-tuned this product specifically for candle making, bringing you exceptional results that will set your candles apart from the competition. With this exceptional container candle wax in your toolbox, you'll experience excellent scent throw, reduced risk of frosting compared to the US Golden Wax 464, good glass adhesion, vibrant colours, and the delight of beautifully smooth surfaces between burns (unlike the rough texture of the US version).

Unlike its US counterpart, European Golden Wax 464 exhibits a pale appearance when first melted. It transforms into its characteristic golden hue only when left melted at a high temperature (70°C and above) overnight. This wax also offers remarkable forgiveness, allowing for pouring at higher temperatures and offering a wider range of pouring temperatures that yield excellent candles.

This wax is available in 800g block tubs as well as 12.5kg flake boxes and 25kg block boxes that are perfect for saving space and embarking on high-yield candle projects.
