Poth Hille Ozokerite & Ceresine Waxes Lipstick

Blended to perfection.

The original Ozokerite Wax was recognised as a solvent extracted Mineral Wax or Earthwax. It had a high melt point (75°C) and was a complex mixture of straight chain and branched hydrocarbons. Ceresine Wax was a bi-product from purifying Ozokerite Wax, had a similar composition but typically had a lower melt point. These historically mined waxes are no longer commercially available.

Poth Hille have for many years produced a wide range of Ceresine and Ozokerite blends that reflect the composition of these historic waxes, whilst offering a more varied range of melting points, hardness, viscosity. gel strength and plasticity. Ozokerite Waxes typically offer higher melt ranges of between 65°C and 95°C. Whilst Ceresine Wax ranges between 50°C and 70°C.

Both waxes have a wide range of applications acting as a key component in formulation.

Flexibility combined with strength

These waxes are generally combination blends of Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin Wax, Polyethylene Wax, Synthetic Wax and Polymers. They are formulated with emphasis on the customer requested physical characteristics and end-use functionality.

Ceresine & Ozokerite create stable emulsions with most vegetable and mineral waxes. Their white colour and excellent gelling properties make them a key ingredient in many creams and lotions and pomades. Also adding strength and stability to lipstick.

Due to characteristic oil retention and general compatibility qualities, they can be used in many other products including polish, waterproofing and lubricating formulations, cheese wax and hot melt adhesives.

Having FDA status means they are also able to be used extensively in the pharmaceutical industry. Standard packing in pellet form in 25 kilo bags.

We are able to offer “BHT Free” grades of Ozokerite and Ceresine. Contact us for more details.
