What is sunflower wax?

Over the years, we have worked hard to bring our customers a wide range of waxes, all suitable for a variety of different applications. One of these is sunflower wax. Not familiar with this versatile wax? Then here is everything you need to know. Refined sunflower wax, otherwise known as Helianthus Annuus, is a hard vegetable wax. It is produced through the winterisation of sunflower oil, a process that results in a really high-quality wax.

It’s one of the newer waxes to enter the commercial market, but it’s making a big impact – mainly in the cosmetic sector. Many of our buyers, after sampling this wax for the first time, make the switch to it on a permanent basis. So if you’re looking to buy sunflower wax, you are certainly in good company!

What are the benefits of sunflower wax?

Sunflower wax is becoming more and more popular with our clients in the UK, and it’s not hard to see why. Its crystalline structure gives it fantastic oil gelling properties, which means that it doesn’t need to be used in high concentrations. It also reduces the greasy feel of some oils, and its strong network of wax crystals boosts the strength and temperature stability of the finished product.

You can also buy it in micronized form. This is a great natural exfoliating bead and is a brilliant alternative to microplastics. With so many sunflower wax benefits, why not give it a try?
