Candle Wax

Setting the industry standard in candle wax

Often considered a household essential, wicked candles are central to people’s lives, helping them celebrate occasions, indulge their senses and serving as accent décor. To keep up with industry needs, candle manufacturers require a supply of reliably high-quality wax to produce consistent products. ExxonMobil has more than 125 years of experience refining and optimizing our wax to meet the highest standards.

The candle waxes we produce go through extensive testing to ensure qualities such as appearance, fragrance capacity and thermal stability meet the highest standard of excellence. Our testing process is designed to quantify candle performance through developing our waxes in controlled environments that are custom-built to produce consistent results.
