What is Carnauba wax?

First of all, what is Carnauba wax? This wax is made from the leaves of the carnauba palm. Only the trees planted in north-east Brazil can produce wax, which is what gives Carnauba wax its other name – Brazil wax! The tree produces a wax that protects its leaves from the hot, dry climate that’s typical of the region; and this is then harvested to make the Carnauba wax that you are able to buy. All of the wax that we sell has been ethically sourced, which has made us one of the most trusted Carnauba wax manufacturers on the web.

What is it used for?

Carnauba wax is very versatile and can be used for a variety of different applications. It can be used in the formulation of a number of cosmetic products including eye pencils and mascara. It can also be found in many different creams, salves and ointments. It can be used in wood and leather care products as well. So, chances are, this wax is present in more than one product in your home.

However, Carnauba wax is perhaps best known for its use in car care products. It’s really common in polishes and has proven to be very popular with motorists all over the world. As proud Carnauba wax suppliers, we can certainly speak to its quality and suitability for many different products.

What are the benefits of Carnauba wax?

It’s hard to know where to start when it comes to Carnauba car wax benefits. This wax has so much to offer, and really gets to shine when used on cars and other vehicles. It can be polished to a mirror-like gloss, giving incredible shine and accentuating all that a car has to offer. It also protects surfaces from harmful and damaging UV rays. It’s also totally insoluble in water and ethanol. So it provides outstanding water-beading, waterproofing and protection against contaminants – whether they are environmental or industrial.

Carnauba wax is also non-toxic, hypoallergenic and is a fantastic emollient – which is why it’s so popular in cosmetic products.
