KahlWax 6642 Organic Carnauba

This light-colored organic carnauba wax is derived from young leaves of the Copernicia Prunifera palm, native to northeastern Brazil. It is a very hard, high melting, brittle wax with high crystallinity. Remarkably, it has a significantly higher oil-binding capacity than other grades of carnauba wax.


Carnauba wax acts as viscosity enhancer in W/O emulsions and anhydrous formulas. Used in stick preparations, it enhances lubricity, generates glossy surfaces, provides high oil binding capacity and improves temperature resistance. It improves texture and enhances volume in mascara formulations. Can be used as a dispersing aid for pigments and dyes in color cosmetics. Furthermore, carnauba wax provides hold in hair styling products.
