Carnauba Wax – Type 1
6001 Carnauba Wax Type 1, is a 100% natural Carnauba Wax.
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 is considered the hardest of natural waxes and due to its gloss, hardness and compatibility, the wax is used as a release agent and coating material in the food industry, particularly in confectionery, chocolate, fruits, chewing gum, nuts, nutritional supplements, coffee beans, and baked goods. Other application areas of carnauba wax include paints, printing inks, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, leather and shoe care, and wood care.
6001 Carnauba Wax is light in colour and available in flake format.
We also supply Type 3 and 4 Carnauba Wax (flake format, and Type 1 Organic).
