Working with a wide range of customers in a variety of sectors, we are one of the leading online suppliers of this type of wax. If you want to find out what Sumac wax is, what it has to offer, and what it can be used for, you have come to just the right place. 

What is Sumac wax?

First of all; what exactly is Sumac wax? Well, it is a vegetable wax that is derived from the berries of the Rhus Verniciflua plant. The wax is obtained by pressing the fruit and then going through a refining process. Our refined Sumac wax has been carefully sourced from some of the best producers in the world, so you can be sure that you are getting the best wax for your money when you shop with us today. Sumac wax has been used for thousands of years, and its popularity shows no signs of letting up – especially with our customers!

You may also see Sumac wax referred to as Japan wax. This is because the Rhus Verniciflua plant is native to Japan and China, and that is where a large proportion of Sumac wax is produced. So if you have been looking for an appropriate Japan wax substitute, you have come to the right place.

What is it used for?

What can our Sumac wax for sale be used for? Well, Sumac wax is highly sought after for use in cosmetic products. It has a very low melting point, which means that it makes those products much less prone to snapping. Whether it is used in lipsticks, eyebrow pencils, eyeliners or any other products, it ensures a pleasant formulation. It is mild and suitable for direct contact with the skin, which has made it a firm favourite for all kinds of businesses. Whether you are a household name or just starting out, Sumac wax could be the missing ingredient that you are looking for.

It’s not just suitable for use in cosmetics. It can be used in vegan food products, massage waxes, candles, furniture polishes and leather care products. So it’s safe to say that it is one of the most versatile waxes around! No wonder it is so popular at Poth Hille.

What are the benefits of Sumac wax?

As a trusted Sumac wax supplier, we are used to talking about all this wax has to offer. As we mentioned before, it has a low melting point which has real benefits when used in cosmetics. It also has many benefits for skin, hair and lips when used on them, thanks to its mild, moisturising qualities.

Sumac wax is also a great vegan alternative to beeswax. As it is a vegetable rather than animal product, it is totally cruelty-free. If you are looking to expand your product range with vegan friendly options or you already have a firm commitment to not using animal products, Sumac wax is the perfect choice.

Beeswax is one of the most popular and versatile waxes out there – but one thing that it is not is vegan. The vegan market is one that is growing more and more with each year, but if you make your product(s) with beeswax it won’t be one that you have been able to tap into. That could soon change thanks to our Sumac wax. This wax is derived from the Rhus Verniciflua plant – its berries, to be specific. No animals were harmed or involved at any stage of the manufacturing process, and it can do so many of the things you have probably been using beeswax for.
