All the information you need.

Rose wax 6692

Derived from the flowers of the Rosa Damascena species indigenous to the Middle East.

6692 Rose Wax proves optimal for emulsions owing to its moderate melting temperature, facilitating energy-efficient production at lower temperatures. Versatile in cosmetic applications, it finds utility in both emulsions and anhydrous systems, giving a delightful rose fragrance.

Bosting technical specifications including

  • Listing Rosa Damascena Flower Cera
  • A melting point of approximately 60°C
  • An acid value of about 5 mg KOH/g
  • Saponification value of around 30 mg KOH/g

Notably, this product inherently contains methyl eugenol, with a concentration not surpassing 99ppm, and its recommended usage level is capped at a maximum of 2%.

Additionally, users are advised that slight variations in product colour may occur within a production batch due to the manufacturer's process.

Tea wax 6614

6614 Tea Wax is extracted through an eco-friendly, solvent-free process from green and black tea leaves belonging to the Camellia Sinensis species.

The extraction process of the Tea Wax begins with the Co2 being pushed through the tea leaves. This process extracts the wax and the caffeine from the leaves. The caffeine goes off to be used in medicine and energy drinks, whereas the wax itself is upcycled and refined into a grade that is suitable in cosmetics and skincare. This dark olive-coloured, and supple wax primarily comprises various natural wax esters and wax acids.

The key benefits of the tea wax are:-

  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf wax
  • A melting point ranging from 60 – 66 degrees Celsius
  • Acid value falling within the range of 20 – 35 mg KOH/g
  • A saponification value ranging between 80 – 90 mg KOH/g.

Tea wax stands out as an optimal choice for emulsions due to its moderate melting temperature, facilitating energy-efficient production at lower temperatures. It’s versatile applications extend to stick preparations for lip balms and lipsticks, giving off a pleasant scent to formulations, and serving as a natural colorant. The recommended usage level stands at a range of 1-3%.

Noteworthy is the slight potential variation in product colour within a production batch, attributable to the production process.
