Consists of high molecular weight monoesters. Rice bran wax has been historically used in a wide variety of cosmetics; replacing carnauba wax in some applications. The color of our domestically refined rice bran wax is naturally rendered through batch chromatography technology and is not solvent extracted. This method of refinement retains low concentrations of policosanols, phospholipids, phytosterols, and squalene. The resulting rice bran wax is of superior quality and competively priced when compared to imported material.
Applications: Lipsticks, Lip Balms, Make ups, Mascaras, Sun Care.
Advantages: Rice Bran Wax can be used as a thickener and has emollience properties. Rice Bran Wax also works well as a binding, coating, or gelling agent.
