- Description and advantages :
Palm wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the partial or complete hydrogenation of palm oil. It comes in a solid, white, shiny and odourless form.
Low melting point: 52-65 ° C, but higher than other vegetable waxes like rapeseed or soy wax.
Non-GMO wax, no additives and not tested on animals.
- Properties :
– firm and hard touch
– good retraction capacity
- Examples of application :
– used in the waxed paper industry to increase impermeability and resistance to water and oils.
– manufacture of molded candles:
The use of palm wax is optimum for molded candles. It allows very fine reproduction of the smallest detail and its retraction properties allow it to separate well from the mold. In addition, palm wax is easily perfumed and coloured. Palm wax gives hard white candles a porcelain like, smooth and shiny surface. Candles are “firmer” and can remain upright even at high temperatures and burn longer periods.
Some palm waxes make it possible to create candles with unique textures with patterns of natural crystallization that forms on the surface of the candle.
