As you know, natural waxes can be used for more than just candles. Some waxes are incredibly versatile and all-natural products and can even be used on furniture and surfboards to not only clean them, but to preserve and protect them as well.
These versatile natural waxes offer a huge range of functionality and there are also many homemade projects that you can do with wax, whether it be making body butters, bath melts, and massage bars
We offer a range of wax supplies to all of our valued clients who are interested in pursuing these types of projects.
Have a look at some of the natural waxes that we stock:
Natural Carnauba Wax
This common wax is a great and completely vegan alternative to well-known beeswax. Acquired from Brazilian palm trees, where they aid in moisture retention, it is easy to see why this type of hard wax is commonly used in cosmetic products such as lip and body balms. It is important to note that due to its rigidity, it requires a higher melting temperature than beeswax. Also, you will only need half of the amount of carnauba wax if you are using it as a substitute. This is definitely one wax where a little goes a long way.
Natural Emulsifying Waxes
Luxurious and creamy lotions aren’t just found in the cosmetic aisles in supermarkets anymore. High-quality, natural products can be created in your own home. Our emulsifying waxes are versatile and easy to use, making them a great choice if you’ve just started making any handmade natural cosmetics that requires emulsification. Our self-emulsifying waxes offer a stable emulsion, leaving you with cosmetic products that glide on smoothly and easily, whether it be body butters, creams, lotions, and hair conditioners.
We offer both white and yellow beeswax beads, both of which are completely natural and chemical free. This is another wax and is also extremely versatile, being used in the production of cleaning products and even in food preparation. It is of course also used to make candles, which not only provide a sweet honey smell, but also burn longer. Because they are completely natural, these candles won’t emit any toxins into the environment.
The delicious scent it gives off makes beeswax a welcome ingredient in lip balms, lotions, and soaps.
Rice Bran Wax
Both sustainable and readily available, Rice Bran Wax is ideal for creating balms, ointments, salves, body butters, and lip balms. Rice Bran Wax is used in the cosmetic industry as a binding agent, plasticiser, thickener, and more, and is extracted using natural carbons and clays.
Ideal for vegans who are looking for an alternative to bee’s wax, Candelilla Wax is rich in nutrients and absorbs into the skin easily. When used on the hair, it creates a barrier which prevents loss of moisture in the scalp and hair. More cosmetics companies that are creating products suited for a vegan lifestyle are resorting to using Candelilla Wax in a host of hair products and conditioners because of its creamy consistency which allows for a smooth application to the hair and skin.
Natural waxes can be used in a variety of ways, but they are very popular in the cosmetics industry. Using Macadamia wax to make skin care products is excellent for the overall health and aesthetics of your skin.
