Castor Vegetable Wax Flakes are a derivative of Castor Oil. They are produced by the hydrogenation (chemical combination with hydrogen) of pure castor oil, in the presence of a nickel catalyst.
Appearance: Solid white flakes with little to no odour.
Uses: Castor Wax is heavily used in the cosmetic industry when a waxy component is needed in a formulation. It also acts as a thickening and moisturizing agent. Examples include eyeliner pencils, anti-antiperspirant sticks, body washes, creams, lotions and lipsticks. Castor wax is also used to make liquid soaps.
Compatibility: Castor Wax is compatible with most animal, vegetable and mineral waxes and a large variety of natural and synthetic resins.
