Medical and Pharmaceutical
Wax for Medical and Pharmaceutical Applications
Many of our medical and pharmaceutical waxes are used by the pharmaceutical industry to create ointments, creams and lotions, as well as being used by leading contact lens manufacturers.
We refine the majority of our beeswax to European Pharmacopoeia standard.
Due to the use of high acidity, high quality waxes, our Ph. Eur. grade beeswax makes excellent emulsions and is used in the excipient base for pharmaceutical creams and ointments.
We also supply waxes for physiotherapy treatments.
Our waxes are used as excipients and can come with a range of melting points to meet your needs.
We also offer different degrees of oil retention, emolliency, rigidity and gelling strength.
