Carnauba wax is a vegetable hard wax. It is known for its beneficial properties that form a protective barrier on the skin to repel environmental assaults while holding in moisture and thus reducing dryness.

Our Carnauba wax is 100% pure and T1 premium grade. It is a wonderful ingredient to use in vegan cosmetics in the place of beeswax. Commonly used in making lipsticks and lip balms, it may also be used as an ingredient in salves and body balms.

    Mustache Wax Base

    Using this as a base for mustache wax as I found out I'm allergic to bees wax. It has taken a bit of experimentation bit it is working great and there is plenty of it. The most I need is 10 oz per experiment. Combined with shea butter it makes a nice consistency for grooming.

    Canuba Wax

    I have not used it yet. I bought it to make a salve recipe, but haven’t needed to use it.

    Great Vegan wax!

    Melts nicely, at a little higher heat than other waxes, but sets up nicely and results in a smooth finished product!!

    Carnauba Wax is a natural vegetable wax derived from the leaves of the Copernicia cerifera botanical, more commonly known as the Carnauba Tree. During Brazil’s dry season, this palm, which also goes by the name “The Tree of Life,” protects itself against moisture loss by secreting a coating on both sides of its leaves. This coating is called Carnauba Wax. It is considered the “Queen of Waxes”, one of the hardest natural waxes on the market today.

    Because Carnauba wax is a vegetable wax it is a great substitute for Beeswax in making vegan DIY skincare products such as balms, creams or salves.

    It comes in small flakes in a craft resealable bag which makes it easy to measure an exact amount you need and reseal the bag.  It is yellow/light brown in color and has a slightly sweet earthy smell.

    If you are using carnauba wax in your recipe in place of beeswax please note that it must be heated to a higher temperature than beeswax in order to melt, it has a melting point of 179.6 degrees Fahrenheit as opposed to 144 degrees. You can also use half the amount of Carnauba Wax in your recipe that calls for beeswax.
