Question Frozen lamp oil (Paraffin)

Went into a cockpit locker today for some alcohol to fill the cook stove. Had to move a container of lamp oil to get at it and noticed that the new, un-opened container of Isopure brand paraffin lamp oil was frozen solid; not just waxy but hard like ice. The temperature outside at the time was 28f.

I did not think this stuff would freeze. Checked around the net and found no comments or information indicating that it would, but mine surely did and the temp is not all that low.
