This all-natural soy wax produced by global wax giant AAK under the Golden Brands name was specifically developed and formulated for containers and melts.

Golden Wax 494 is made in the USA. This version has an excellent scent throw, exhibits vibrant colors, and releases easily from molds. This wax uses a 100% soy and botanical oil formula that creates a smooth appearance. Due to the high amount of botanical additives, this wax blend is not designed to burn in a jar.

Golden Wax 494 is the world's most popular soy melt wax because this wax outperforms a lot of soy melt blends in the market with excellent mold release, depth of color, and scent loading. GW494 is highly stable and is delivered in flake form, making it ideal for low- to medium-volume makers.

Most dyes work with Golden Wax 494 including powder, liquid, or our Bekro dyes. If you wish to make your wax darker, add a little black dye to the color you are using. To lighten use white dye.


Golden Wax 494 may be used with fragrance at levels up to 10%, however, we recommend approximately 8% as this will give an excellent scent throw. Add fragrance close to the pour temperate, around 60 degrees, for best results. The wax will hold 10%+ of most fragrances, although 7-8% is usually more than enough.

Max. Fragrance Load: 10% 


The melting temperature of Golden Wax 494 is 49ºC - 52°C and it can be heated to 80 - 85°C. Allow the wax to cool to your desired pour temperature, add the fragrance at approximately 70°C, and mix well - be sure to stir/mix the wax while melting. Higher temperatures may cause the wax to discolor. 


Pour temperatures may vary according to type & size, fragrance & dye used. Pour temperatures should be reasonably high (between 60-71°C) unless you are pouring into plastic clamshells, so we recommend, only in that case, no higher than 55°C.


Cool undisturbed melts at room temperature (about 21-24°C). They should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning.

Cure Time

We would suggest a cure time of 10-14 days before burning.

How to take the vegetal mold of the silicon mold 

Taking vegetable wax molds out of silicone molds can be a delicate process to prevent breakage or damage. Here's a step-by-step guide with some tips and tricks to make it easier:

  1. Prepare Your Work Area:

    • Ensure your workspace is clean and dry.
    • Make sure the silicone mold and the vegetable wax are at room temperature.
  2. Use a Release Agent:

    • Apply a mold release agent to the inside of the silicone mold before pouring in the vegetable wax. This can be a silicone-based spray or a specialized mold-release product.
    • Allow the release agent to dry or set as per its instructions.
  3. Pour the Wax Carefully:

    • When pouring the melted vegetable wax into the silicone mold, do it slowly and steadily to minimize air bubbles and ensure it fills all the details of the mold.
  4. Cooling and Setting:

    • Allow the wax to cool and set completely. This may take several hours or overnight depending on the size and thickness of the wax mold.
  5. Gently Flex the Mold:

    • Before attempting to remove the wax from the mold, gently flex the silicone mold by pressing on the sides. This can help loosen the wax from the mold's surface.
  6. Start at the Edges:

    • Begin removing the wax mold from the silicone by carefully peeling back the edges. Use your fingers to create a gap between the wax and the mold.
  7. Avoid Force:

    • Do not force the wax out of the mold. If it feels stuck, gently flex the mold a bit more and try again.
  8. Use a Soft Tool:

    • If necessary, use a soft, non-abrasive tool like a silicone spatula or a plastic spoon to help ease the wax out of the mold. Be very gentle to avoid damaging the wax.
  9. Warm the Mold Slightly:

    • If the wax is particularly stubborn, you can warm the silicone mold slightly with a hair dryer or a heat gun on low heat. This can help loosen the wax without melting it.
  10. Patience is Key:

    • Take your time and work slowly. Rushing the process can lead to breakage.
  11. Inspect for Breaks:

    • Once you've successfully removed the wax mold, inspect it carefully for any cracks or breakage. If you find any, you might need to re-melt the wax and make a new mold.
  12. Clean and Store:

    • Clean the silicone mold after use, and store it properly to maintain its condition for future use.

Remember that practice makes perfect. It may take a few tries to get the hang of removing wax molds from silicone molds without breaking them. Additionally, the quality of your silicone mold and the type of wax you use can also influence the ease of removal. High-quality molds and proper techniques will typically yield better results

Silicone molds are known for their non-stick properties, and in many cases, they do not require a release agent. However, whether you need a release agent for silicone molds can depend on several factors:

  1. Type of Silicone Mold: Most silicone molds designed for crafting, baking, or soap-making are naturally non-stick, and you can often use them without a release agent.

  2. Complexity of the Mold: If you're using a silicone mold with intricate details, deep crevices, or undercuts, it may be a good idea to use a release agent to ensure easy removal of the molded item.

  3. Type of Material Being Molded: Some materials may have a tendency to stick to silicone more than others. For example, certain types of wax, resin, or clay may require a release agent, while others may not.

  4. Personal Preference: Some individuals prefer to use a release agent as an added precaution to ensure that their molded items come out easily and without any risk of damage.

  5. Reuse of the Mold: Using a release agent can also prolong the life of your silicone mold by preventing any build-up or residue from repeated use.

In many cases, you can start by trying to use your silicone mold without a release agent. If you find that the material sticks or has difficulty coming out of the mold, then consider using a suitable release agent. Common release agents include silicone mold release sprays, vegetable oil, or even a light dusting of cornstarch for certain applications.

Ultimately, the decision to use a release agent with your silicone mold should be based on your specific project and the materials you're working with. Experimentation may be necessary to determine the best approach for your particular situation.
