E00173 Synthetic Japan Wax B
Japan Wax is a unique wax from the berries of Rhus trees native to Japan and China. The classic application of this low melting, softer vegetable wax is for cosmetic pencils where, due to its special properties and compositional features, it strongly enhances pay-off n improves texture, pigment distribution, break strength and cohesion. Its restricted availability and quite high price have always stimulated the search for (partial) replacements and for substitutes. Our Synthetic Japan Wax has been developed as a natural and sustainable alternative to genuine Japan Wax and offers similar formulation advantages, including the extraordinary pay-off benefits for pencils. Better availability and price open the door for other applications. So in addition to the classical pencil applications, contributions to texture, sensory characteristics, lubrication, emolliency and tensile strength, make it an interesting ingredient for lip gloss, lipsticks, crayons, mascara, hair pomades and creams.
