Praan Naturals Sunflower Wax is a vegetable wax that is white to light yellow in hue. It is supplied in pellet form, making it easy to work with. It is ethically sourced, and it can be used as a vegan alternative to beeswax and other waxes within cosmetic applications.
The melting point of Sunflower Wax is 74C-80C (165F-176F). It possesses a firmer consistency than that of Beeswax and Candelilla Wax. It offers a non-waxy feel and is well suited for helping to bind oils in a formulation. Sunflower Wax adds stability, hardness, emolliency and lubrication to lipsticks, lip balms, anhydrous cosmetics, foundations, mascaras and a wide array of other cosmetic formulations.
Our lead formulator recommends using up to 25%-30% due to it having a firmer texture and higher melting point than Beeswax and Candelilla Wax. It may also be combined with other waxes.
