Item # 68-1053, Powdered Shellac Wax

Pure Shellac Wax is obtained thru the de-waxing of bleached shellac. This wax occurs naturally in the seed lac-resin secreted by the lac-bug, which is the precursor to bleached shellac. It is carefully purified to remove foreign matter. After the wax has been refined it is packaged in either flake or powdered form.

This unique wax is known for its gloss when used as a surface-polishing agent in the tumbling process to produce sugar coated candies or pharmaceuticals tablets. Shellac Wax can also be found as an ingredient in combination with other waxes in solvent or water based polishes for both commercial and consumer products. This includes automotive, leather and furniture polishes.

Shellac Wax can also be used as a film former, a binding agent or for its gloss factor in the cosmetic industry, especially in lipsticks.

Powdered Shellac wax is 100% shellac wax.
