Lets talk about the type of candle waxes today.
For most of recorded history candles were made from tallow (rendered from beef or mutton-fat) or beeswax. From the mid 1800s they were also made from spermaceti, a waxy substance derived from the Sperm whale, which in turn spurred demand for the substance. Since then, alongside beeswax, a number of other waxes have come to be popular for candle making.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax which contained a high proportion of stearic acid. It is derived from the oil of soybeans and is made from hydrogenated soybean oil. It is ideal for making container candles, jarred candles, tins, votives, tealights and tarts. At Singapore Soap, our soy wax flakes is 100% pure without blending with any other additive, and is in flake form has a creamy white appearance. This soy wax is able to hold up to 8% fragrance and has an incredible hot throw.
Beeswax is another 100% all-natural wax. One of the best candle waxes on the market, beeswax can be used to make all types of candles, including pillars, tapers, votives and containers. At Singapore Soap, we are a wholesale supplier of yellow beeswax, white beeswax, organic yellow beeswax and organic white beeswax.
Paraffin wax, also known as straight wax, is wax that doesn’t have any additives in it. Paraffin wax is one of the most commonly used and least-expensive candle wax that can be used to make many types of candles, including pillars, containers, votives, tealights, tapers and tarts.
Currently, all coconut waxes are blended i.e. blended with other waxes e.g. soy wax, to help increase the melt point. Coconut wax by itself is very soft, so it can also cause trouble with melting in the summer or tropical climate countries. Like beeswax, coconut wax is also one of the slowest-burning waxes out there, meaning your candle will last longer than a traditional candle.
Palm wax was once heralded as the holy grail of the candle industry. With a pleasant aesthetic, “feathered” effect, and a similar burn quality as that of paraffin, palm wax was once viewed as the sustainable alternative.
Candle gel wax is not actually a wax but a combination of resin and mineral oil. Gel candles carry a number of benefits and perks that give them an edge over the others e.g. gel will burn at least twice as long as paraffin wax, but they come at a higher cost than traditional paraffin candles.
