The Difference between 464, 444 & 415 Soy Wax

Soy wax compare to paraffin wax is highly recommended because it is better for our health, burns longer, contain less chemical, produces less soot hence less air pollution, sustainable and less heat.

Soy wax is a kind of vegetable wax made from the soybean oil. The harvested beans are then cleaned, cracked, disrobed, and rolled into flakes.

The oil will be extracted from the flakes and be hydrogenated. Here is the ultimate guide for you to differentiate them!



444 Soy Wax is highly recommended for beginners! It contains a soy-based additive and natural too. This soy-based additive enables the soy to be poured nicely at a higher temperature reduces it from frost and allows to hold better colours shape in warmer weather than other type of waxes.

444 blends really well with slack, paraffin, and microcrystalline waxes but not recommend to blend it with beeswax. It has more scented fragrance than pure soy wax and has nice finishing.

Ideally use in container candles and tealights. Specially formulated soy wax flakes for container candle and wax applications. However, bags weight can be inconsistent and wax is soft and may not suitable for freestanding candles.


464 Soy Wax is a 100% natural soy wax blending with soy-based additives. What makes it special it reduces frosting, increase fragrance, has smoother creamy top and can hold up to high fragrance oil. It is a single pour with the melting point of 115-120, this wax enables it to have better jar adhesion and excellent finishing.

Designed for use in container candles and blends well with other wax like beeswax, paraffin as well as microcrystalline. A great choice for container homemade candle. The weak points are inconsistency in batch quality and packaging.


415 Soy Wax is a pure natural soy container wax with no additives whatsoever. It is great and simple for blending with natural or other waxes like paraffin and it is scentless.

It has a 121-125 slightly higher melting point and can really melt well to retain more fragrance load. Also can be used alone, but may need to refinishing on the tops or else frosting might happen. Single pour with a smooth re-congealed burn pool., enabling it to retain a higher fragrance load that blends well with other waxes.

Designed for use in container candles. Adversely, as it is pure soy it may not have the best finish and clean compared to other waxes and sometimes doesn’t stay lit.
