WHAT IS COCONUT WAX?

Anyone who has used coconut oil at home knows that on a hot day it liquefies, and likely, have also noticed its faint ‘coconut’ odor. This leads to two common questions about coconut wax “What’s different between coconut oil and wax?” and “Doesn’t coconut wax smell of coconut?”.
Given its tendency to melt at room temperatures, coconut oil is not a wax. Our coconut wax uses use a hydrogenated and refined coconut oil. The refining process removes the coconut scent, while hydrogenation increases the melt point substantially from ~75 ºF to ~100 ºF. So with our ‘high-melt’ coconut oil, we’re a step closer to a wax, but still not quite there. The coconut oil is then blended with other natural vegetable waxes to bring up the melt point further to avoid any 'liquefying' issues. In summary, coconut wax is a high melt-point coconut oil and other natural waxes blended to achieve a wax that’s solid at room temperature. The inclusion of the coconut oil leads to a wax that burns very evenly compared to others, and from our own tests, more slowly too.

WARNING

  • Burn within sight.
  • Keep away from things that catch fire.
  • Keep away from children.
  • Keep wax pool free from debris.
  • Stop burning when 1/2” of melted wax remains.
  • Avoid drafty areas.
