Carnauba Wax

Carnauba wax is derived from the leaves of the carnauba palm. Carmel carnauba wax is 100% pure and sold hard yellow-brown flakes.

Carnauba Wax is considered among the hardest of natural waxes and produces a very durable film. It has a high melt point, enhances oil retention, is valued as a stable co-emulsifier agent and is an exceptional polishing aid. It is less sensitive to temperature than beeswax and also particularly resistant to humidity.
