Vegan Wax for Lipstick
Veganism by definition, requires the avoidance animal-derived materials, foods and products that are tested on animals. There are several cosmetic grade natural waxes that will fall within this category; Carnauba Wax, Candelilla Wax, Rice Bran Wax, Sunflower Wax and Sumac Wax.
Hydrogenated Waxes may also be applicable and include Soy Wax, Rapeseed Wax, Castor Wax and Coconut Wax.
As a cosmetic raw material, Beeswax is extremely versatile having combined properties of a relatively low melting point, flexible but not crystalline and able to bind oils, enhance texture and regulate viscosity.
Our aim was to formulate a wax blend that can reproduce the characteristics of Beeswax and be within specified parameters i.e. Be 100% natural, Vegan and contain no palm derived material.
