This modified beeswax allows to prepare balms with a very flexible texture and a smooth and creamy touch. Prevents crystallization in balms and helps to thicken oils evenly.

It is, therefore, the ideal ingredient for the preparation of oily serums or "gels". In addition, it allows and maintains the good dispersion of dyes in makeup products, besides being useful as a texture and consistency agent in creams and milks.

A very versatile wax, therefore, with a unique and silky touch.

  • Properties:

    - Thickening, texturing

    - More hydrophilic than beeswax, which gives the creams a more creamy feel and better properties in emulsions (promotes the formation of "liquid crystal" structures that give a nice touch)

    - Texturing agent in emulsions

    - Increases the stability of emulsions

    - Film formation

    - Facilitates and maintains the good dispersion of pigments and micas in makeup products.
