NAT SUNFLOWER WAX
NAT SUNFLOWER WAX is obtained by winterization of the sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus L.).
Sunflower wax is a whitish solid that is suitable for use in a wide variety of cosmetic applications (anhydrous, O/W, W/O). It has some excellent oil gelling properties allowing use at low concentration.
It forms a strong network of wax crystals, improving the strength and the temperature stability of the end product.
This wax can be a useful replacement of Carnauba, Candelilla or mineral waxes. Moreover, it lowers the greasiness due to oils.
NAT SUNFLOWER WAX is not genetically modified and does not contain preservatives. It is not tested on animals.
