Paraffin wax, which is also called petroleum wax, is a colorless to white translucent block, odorless, tasteless, waxy solid, with a typical melting point between about 46 and 68°C (115 and 154°F), and a density of around 900 kg/m3. Paraffin petroleum wax is made from saturated hydrocarbons and is often applied in the skin-softening salon and spa treatments on the hands, cuticles, and feet due to the colorless, tasteless, and odorless of the industrial paraffin wax.

The main difference between fully refined pure paraffin wax and semi-refined industrial paraffin wax is the oil content. The oil content of fully refined paraffin wax is less than 0.8% and that of semi-refined paraffin wax is less than 1.8%. The price difference is about 50 yuan/ton.
Considering the burning quality and season change, choosing which types of paraffin wax is very important. There are two factors: oil content and melting point. The melting point of paraffin wax is usually from 48 to 66 ℃. Most paraffin manufacturers choose fully refined paraffin 56-58 for candle making. Low melting point paraffin wax is easy to become deformed in summer.
Beeswax is a crude wax produced by bees while paraffin wax is petroleum based wax. Petroleum is used to make oil and gas. When the wick are properly trimmed, the beeswax ear candles burn very clean and produce hardly any soot. Paraffin wax for candle can produce much more smoke because all organic compounds emit some carbon due to incomplete combustion. Beeswax burns at a higher temperature than paraffin, and thus produces less soot.
Mixing or blending soy and paraffin wax is available to make it harder, smoother, and help keep the fragrance alive longer. Some test batches have performed using a mixture range from 10%, 20% to 50% and etc. Adding 10-20% paraffin to the soy candle wax makes the wax harder and release better, making the wax melt the cookies.
