soywax 

is a vegetable wax extracted from the oil of soybeans, so it is vegan. It is made by hydrogenation. Under high pressure of approx. 200 bar and at a high temperature of 200 to 300 °C, soybean oil is reacted with ultrapure hydrogen in the presence of a metallic catalyst, usually nickel, to form a wax-like mass with a high proportion of stearic acid. The disadvantage is that it is almost impossible to produce drip-free soy candles so far, the wax is mostly only used for tea lights or glass candles. [Wikipedia]
Soy wax is usually mixed with stearin (palm oil) for better strength.
