Whether naturally occurring or made by human hand, wax is one of the most versatile materials in the world, having been used for everything from sealing documents to providing light. At Poth Hille, we understand this only too well, having manufactured and sold an enormous range of different waxes since 1875. We have provided waxes for industrial purposes, for candle makers and for the pharmaceutical sector, and we pride ourselves on the diversity of our products.

We can offer an extensive range of natural waxes to the cosmetic industry sector. This is growing market where formulators are always seeking to replace synthetic products with more natural and eco-friendly products.

Our natural product range for this sector includes White and Yellow Refined Beeswax, available in pellet form, our beeswax meets the BP, USP and Ph Eur standard. Ideal for use in lipsticks, lip balms, cream lotions and pomades. Our beeswax has excellent oil binding and emulsifying abilities and is also used as a structure and texture improver. We have for many year been suppliers of cosmetic grade carnauba wax (commonly known as Prime yellow Carnauba) as well as refined Candelilla Wax, Rice Bran Wax and Sunflower Wax. These natural waxes are crucial in the manufacture of lipstick, mascara and many decorative cosmetics due to their high melt point, gloss and slip characteristics, hardness and stability.

Other natural waxes used in the cosmetic industry are Japan Wax, Natural Emulsifying wax, Coconut Wax, Rapeseed Wax and Castor Wax.

Whether due to high cost or natural alternative waxes are scarce or unavailable. We can offer many synthetic alternative waxes that can meet the formulators requirements. We produce Synthetic and Substitute Beeswax products, Candelilla Substitutes (Candelilla Wax is particularly scarce at the moment) Carnauba Wax Substitute and Japan Wax Substitute ( another natural product in short supply).

We also offer several grades of Ozokerite and Ceresine Wax which is a key ingredient in many creams and lotions. A full range of Microcrystalline and Paraffin waxes with numerous melt points and hardness characteristics. Their FDA certification also means they are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, as is our pharmaceutical Carnauba wax, which is commonly used for the coating on pills and tablets, due to its high melting point, insolubility in water and hypoallergenic properties. We obtain this direct from source, enabling us to offer continuity of supply and competitive prices.

Poth Hille & Co. Ltd can offer all of these products and we are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at the forthcoming ‘In-Cosmetics’ exhibition being held in London for the first time in many years at the Excel Centre in Docklands from April 4-6 2017.
