E00029 Kester Wax K62

General information

This synthetic ester wax is the esterification product of long chain saturated fatty alcohols and acids, both of vegetable origin. It contains esters with carbon chain lengths between ca. C32-C46, especially C36-C44. Kester Wax K62 strongly resembles Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil and Synthetic Spermaceti (also called Cetyl Palmitate or Cetyl Esters Wax).


Sticks, hair care, skin care, mascara


Kester Wax K62 functions as a consistency component in sticks and emulsions (W/O and O/W). In both it thickens the formulation by providing a rigid structural network of wax crystals, improving oil binding, emolliency, film formation, gloss and lubricity. It strongly reduces the greasy feel of oils and contributes to texture, strength, break resistance, payoff and mould release characteristics. This wax is a good alternative for Jojoba wax.
