Polawax™ NF 


Croda Inc.

Polawax™ NF is the premier nonionic self-emulsifying wax used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It is a mild ingredient with a proven safety record and has been used successfully for many years. Polawax™ NF possesses all the advantages of the older type emulsifying waxes, while lacking their disadvantages, such as the tendency for these materials to be incompatible or interfere with certain ingredients.

Polawax™ A-31 was especially developed for quick breaking foams and mousses. It shows improved solubility in aqueous alcohol and produces better foam body. It can be used to produce viscous or thin emulsions, depending upon the concentration at which it is used.

Croda considers the RSPO’s Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Cropure™ Wheat Germ.
