A Wonderfully Versatile Wax

Here at Poth Hille, a leading sunflower wax supplier, we supply a wide range of customers with the wax they need to manufacture a variety of products. Not sure if this wax is the right choice for you? Here is everything sunflower wax can be used for – some of them may surprise you!

Cosmetic Formulations

Sunflower wax is an excellent base for cosmetics, including lip balms, creams, and lotions. Its smooth texture and moisturising properties make it a preferred choice for a huge range of skincare products, and it offers a natural alternative to other waxes.

Candles with a Difference

Rather than the conventional paraffin or soy wax, sunflower wax has emerged as yet another choice for candle making. It burns cleanly and emits a subtle, pleasant fragrance, providing candle enthusiasts with another quality option.

Wood and Leather Polish

Sunflower wax’s natural sheen and protective qualities make it a highly sought-after ingredient for wood and leather polishes. The wax helps to restore and maintain the lustre of furniture and leather goods while acting as a protective barrier against moisture and wear.

Food Preservation

Sunflower wax can be used as a coating for certain fruits and vegetables, and forms a natural barrier that helps extend their shelf life. This application is particularly popular for organic farming practices where preservatives are not used.

Paper Coating

The water-resistant and anti-fungal properties of sunflower wax make it an ideal coating for paper products. It enhances the durability and boosts the longevity of paper, especially in environments where there is a lot of moisture in the air.

Dental Products

Sunflower wax’s non-toxic and anti-bacterial characteristics have led to it being included in the formulations of dental products such as floss and chewing gum. It provides a natural alternative for buyers looking for eco-friendly oral care options – an increasingly popular market.

Textile Waterproofing

Hikers and campers benefit from sunflower wax when it is used as a natural alternative for waterproofing textiles. Whether it’s hiking gear or outdoor clothing, the wax helps to repel water, keeping fabrics dry and breathable in all weather conditions.


Sunflower wax’s emulsifying properties have made it a popular choice for pharmaceuticals, where it acts as a stabilising agent in certain formulations. Its natural composition makes it a preferred choice for those maintaining plant-based lifestyles outside of diet and fashion.

Hair Care Products

Sunflower wax can make hair shinier and more manageable, and as a result, it is commonly used in the formulation of styling waxes and conditioners. Its light texture means that it doesn’t weigh hair down either.

Biodegradable Packaging

As consumers seek out sustainable packaging solutions wherever possible, sunflower wax has gained attention for its use as a biodegradable coating. It can enhance the durability of packaging materials while remaining environmentally friendly.
