  • Full Description

Technical Description

 
Common name Sunflower Wax
Botanical name   Helianthus annuus
Melting Point 74-80 deg C

Sunflower wax is a hard, crystalline vegetable wax obtained from the winterization of sunflower oil. Sunflower wax helps to thicken formulations by providing a rigid structural network of wax crystals, thus improving oil binding, emolliency, film formation and lubricity. It is used to add hardness, texture, strength and mold release.

Sunflower wax can function in many formulations as an alternative for Rice Bran Wax, Carnauba Wax, and Candelilla Wax. It is recommended for creams, lotions, sunscreens, hair conditioners, shampoos, lipsticks, and many other products.

This product is intended for external use only

    This product came in chunks, very rigid chunks, which are very hard to manipulate. I tried to microwave it to soften a bit for easier grinding. With such a high melting point, the oil phase solidified very fast. It was ok using a small amount in emulsions but it could be very difficult to use in balms.
