Wax Update!

We understand how frustrating it is that wax hasn’t been readily available for you to purchase. We’ve also seen a few comments about some of our customers not being able to continue with their businesses due to the shortage of wax.

Unfortunately, due to the current climate, our manufacturers haven’t been able to react quick enough to cope with the increase in demand. Our team are doing everything they can to get wax from both existing and new suppliers from around the world.

Challenges with the supply chain have been compounded by a massive increase in demand from all our customers.

We have spoken to our current suppliers to give you a clearer view of what is happening.

Soy Wax - KeraSoy, EcoSoya

Kerax is unable to produce any more wax than they are already producing, which means we cannot promise a stable supply of Kerax wax until July.

Golden Wax -  494 & 464

We have had no issues with lead times and production limits, however, they have increased their pricing by 10% which unfortunately means we have also had to increase our pricing of Golden Wax.

Nature Wax C3 - 

We are working with our supplier very closely and we are not expecting any issues regarding lead times and quantities. However, with an increase in the price of soybean oil, they have increased their prices by 3%.

Sasol Wax

Please be advised that effective 14th April 2021 there will be a price increase on Sasol wax.  This action is driven by the recent cost increases in raw materials used to produce this product, as well as inflated shipping costs.

Your understanding and support are appreciated.

Kerax Waxes

Please be advised that effective 14th April 2021 there will be a price increase on all Kerax waxes.  This action is driven by the recent cost increases in raw materials used to produce this product, as well as inflated shipping costs.

Your understanding and support are appreciated.

Now for the exciting part!

When we recognised that wax shortages were not a temporary issue, we knew that something had to be done. So we started working on our own brand wax to guarantee a secure supply. This wax has been developed by one of the biggest candle brands in the world and is a soy paraffin blend wax that is exclusive to us. Our team have personally tested this wax to ensure it meets all of your needs. We have also ensured that there will always be a stable supply of our wax and that it is very reasonably priced.

This wax exciting new wax will be leaving the dock in the next few weeks and is due to arrive at the end of February.

We will keep you all posted with more details about this wax very soon, so keep an eye out on our social media!
