6005 Organic Carnauba Wax Type 1, is a 100% natural Carnauba Wax certified organic by The Soil Association (SA Certification Ltd).

Carnauba Wax is obtained from the leaves of the indigenous ‘Copernica Cerifera’ palm tree, which grows in northern Brazil.  The colour and quality of this product is determined by the age of the leaves and the process of extraction.

Carnauba wax has an outstanding hardness and abrasion resistance and is compatible with many other waxes. Carnauba Wax is considered the hardest of natural waxes and produces a durable film.

6005 Organic Carnauba Wax is light in colour, flake format and is used in food, pharma and cosmetic applications.

We also supply Type 3 and 4 Carnauba Wax (flake format, non organic).
