This amazing new wax is 100% vegetable-based so an excellent choice for vegan products.
A lusciously soft and smooth texture, it is perfect for products which need to be soft and malleable yet stable.
Try adding a small amount (4-5%) to your organic body butter formulations to make them more stable in higher temperatures.
It also works as a gellifier for oils, particularly castor oil and other ester oils. The low melting point is a bonus, making it feel silky soft, and it gives O/W emulsions a moussy, whipped cream type of texture. Suitable for lip gloss formulations and mascaras, and works as an outstanding pay-off enhancer in lipsticks.
Harvested from the fruits of the Sumac Tree, the wax is extracted by hot water from the skin of the fruit and further refined by filtration and absorption method.
It is a soft, easily emulsifiable plant-derived wax. Comes in convenient pellet form and smells faintly of berries!
