Carnauba Wax

Carnauba Wax

Carnauba wax is exuded by the leaves of the Brazilian "Tree of Life" to conserve the moisture within the tree and leaves. This Carnauba Palm grows in the northern and northeastern parts of Brazil along the river banks, and valleys.

The leaves containing the wax are cut off the tree during the period from September to March. The color and quality are governed by the age of the leaves and the care used in processing the carnauba wax.

Paraffin Wax

Paraffin Wax

Fully refined Paraffin Waxes are a hard, white crystalline material derived from petroleum. They are refined by means of a carefully controlled selective solvent process into different melting point grades, each having exceptional gloss and resistance to blocking. Their degree of purity and low odor make these waxes suitable for many applications, including food packaging.

Paraffin waxes are predominately composed of normal, straight chain hydrocarbons. They vary from 18 to 40 carbon atoms and their chain length (i.e. molecular weight) determines their average melting point. Resistance to most acids and alkalis is very good.
