The Myrica Cerifera Fruit Wax with a low melting point

Suggested uses for fruit wax: hair styling gels, lipsticks, fragrances, candle making

The Myrica Cerifera Fruit Wax used in KahlWax 6279L is sourced from Andean farmers, who use sustainable harvesting methods. The wax is obtained by initially washing the waxy Myrica fruit in water; the fruit wax is then extracted by boiling and skimming the wax off the surface; the crude wax is then finally processed by Kahl in Germany – without any use of chemicals.
