Carnauba Wax

Our top quality, premium Cosmetic grade Carnauba Wax is an all vegetable derived, hard, brittle, light yellow wax in a flake form.

Carnauba is the hardest natural wax available. Used often in many food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, with beeswax or candelilla. The properties of carnauba wax make it ideal for use to Thick (non-gelling), and use as a viscosity enhancer. Carnauba has excellent properties as an emollient and a great moisturizer. Carnauba provides good skin protectant properties too. It is compatible with many other natural and synthetic waxes and resins.

    Carnauba Wax

    Posted by Lisa Nuckols on Oct 13th 2017

    I had a request for lotion bars that didnt use beeswax, so I ordered some Carnauba as a substitute. A little goes a long way! I was able to use half the amount of wax and still get the same results as with beeswax. This is a little harder to work with because it takes much longer to melt down, but it blends nice and smooth after you get everything to similar temps.
