100% palm wax is derived from palm oil. As a candle wax, it creates a beautiful crystal structure that forms naturally as it cools. This effect is maximized by pouring the wax at a high temperature 93.3? C and cooling slowly; this can be accomplished by insulating or heating the mold. This wax does not have ideal burn characteristics and so is recommended for novelty candles only.
As an additive, it may be used in any amount up to and including 100%. In low percentages it has a tendency to promote mottling or snow-spots, while used in moderate percentages it will go opaque. At high percentages a striking crystallization becomes noticeable. It also acts as a hardener. Melt point is approximately 60 ?C.
