WAXES FOR PERSONAL CARE
Waxes are used in personal care products for many functions; to aid the formula structure and bring defensive, hydrating benefits to skin. A wax forms a protective barrier to help shield the skin from environmental toxins. The wax also acts as a humectant holding in moisture and reducing dryness.
Kester Wax K-24 provides all the same benefits of natural oils without the greasy feeling or weigh-down. Natural oils provide hydration benefits when applied.
Kostol Natural E is multifunctional. It has benefits as a natural emulsifying wax, mild thickener, and skin conditioner. Conditioning supports skin function increasing its softness as well as other benefits.
Kester Wax K-48 functions as a thickener contributing to the consistency factor in emulsion products, a mild pearlizing agent, and an emollient on the skin. Pearlizing Agents, or opacifiers, are used in personal care products to make products pearlescent or more opaque. Emollients act as an aid in skin hydration.
Certified Organic Beeswax, along with Yellow and White Beeswax, thickens the formula and covers the skin with a protective barrier. Kester Wax K-24 provides the skin with a light, dry after-feel, counteracting the heavy feel of the active.
