464 is an excellent vegan-friendly wax made from responsibly-sourced soy. On top of that, AAK takes sustainability very seriously, so you can be sure the products you are using meet rigorous ethical and environmental standards. Read all about it here.
The wax is microwavable and can hold upwards of 10% of most fragrances, although 8% is usually more than enough. Stabilo also tend to work best with 464, depending on the fragrance. For instance, a 30cl candle will typically perform well with a Stabilo16/18.
Like most plant waxes, 464 is prone to circular surface cracking but this can usually be reduced or even eliminated by good temperature control. The likelihood of polymorphism can also be reduced by having glassware at room temperature (20°C), working at a warm ambient temperature and preventing rapid temperature changes during the cooling process.
