Our vegetable based Emulsifying Wax is used to prevent oil and water from separating in creams and lotions.

Emulsifying Wax is supplied in white waxy pellets or flakes, and it has low odor. It is made from vegetable source fatty alcohols. However, it is not considered "all natural." It combines the emollient, emulsifying, thickening properties of cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol. Emulsifying Wax can form extremely stable w/o or o/w emulsions.

Use Emulsifying Wax at 5% - 10% in your "water in oil" or "oil in water" emulsions. Melt the wax with your other fats and waxes and then slowly add your water phase while continuously stirring. The key to forming a stable emulsion is to keep the formulation in motion until it cools completely.

Comments: I love this and all other products I've purchased from FNWL! If you are looking for high quality ingredients try theirs. You will not be disappointed. I've tried products from many other online wholesalers, and I have to say FNWL beats everyone on quality, and customer service is great. Very helpful and professional!

Comments: This is absolutely perfect. Not all recipes work with beeswax as an emulsifier, but this is exactly what I needed. Not waxy feeling and stays smooth. Thank you!

"I would just like to tell you thank-you for having a Web site with such delights. I love the butters that I purchased, and the fragrance oils that came along with my order smell wonderful. Since my purchase, I have been excited about trying to concoct the butters with a fragrance to make my own little butter. You definitely have a faithful customer in me."
