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.

If you look for the Swedish version ( with no botanical anti-frosting additive )  look for Y50 here

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.
