Paraffin is a petroleum-based wax which is typically used to make a variety of commercial items including candles, wax paper, polishes, cosmetics, and electrical insulators.
Paraffin wax is a by-product of the oil purification process. As crude oil undergoes refinement, paraffin wax is extracted and then processed for further for use in products.
Carmel manufactures high purity paraffin waxes. Our highly refined grades meet the specifications for food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications.
