E00016 Kester Wax K82P

General Information

This specialty wax is created to mimic the complex polyester fraction of beeswax, which gives beeswax its unique plastic properties. Kester Wax K82P contains a range of hydroxy polyesters with chain lengths between ca. 56 and 76 carbon atoms and is manufactured from natural fatty acids and synthetic fatty alcohols. Kester Wax K82P gels most cosmetic oils showing good oil retention.


Sticks, decorative cosmetics, emulsions, mascara, hair care, sun care.


Kester Wax K82P improves texture, film forming, SPF, plasticity, adhesion, homogeneity, oil binding and ingredient distribution. It suppresses the crystallisation behaviour of other waxes. Because of its special plasticizing properties the proportion of hard waxes in a product can be increased. Its excellent compatibility with pigments allows high pigment percentages.
