Product description:

Carnauba Wax T-1 is a natural wax extracted from the leaves of a palm tree called Copernica cerifera, native to northern Brazil. The wax protects the plant from environmental influences and prevents excessive evaporation. Carnauba wax consists mainly of esters (approx. 85%), free long-chain fatty alcohols (approx. 13%) as well as free fatty acids and resins.


This very hard natural wax is mainly used in cosmetics and is also suitable as a pharmaceutical excipient as it provides good mould release, hardness and consistency. Furthermore, it improves surface gloss and offers easy workability.


As carnauba wax has the highest melting point among natural waxes, it is suitable for improving the temperature stability of many cosmetic products.
