Ceresine wax is a colorless and odorless wax that is used in cosmetics, particularly lipsticks. An emollient, hardener, and thickener it adds stability to cosmetics while keeping them smooth and pliable.
Melting point is between 130-160 degrees Fahrenheit. Non-toxic and non-hazardous, thus permitting use in countless personal-care applications. Especially popular in lipsticks.Similar to Ozokerite Wax.
Ceresin wax is a type of mineral wax that is derived from petroleum. It is commonly used in the cosmetics industry as an emollient and thickening agent, as well as in the production of candles, polishes, and other products.
One type of ceresin wax is called microcrystalline ceresin wax, which is made by refining crude oil. Microcrystalline ceresin wax has a higher melting point and is more flexible than other types of ceresin wax, making it useful in products that require greater pliability and resistance to heat.
Another type of ceresin wax is called ozokerite ceresin wax, which is derived from the mineral ozokerite. Ozokerite ceresin wax has a lower melting point than microcrystalline ceresin wax and is used in products that require a softer texture, such as lipsticks and balms.
