Sunflower Wax

Koster Keunen, Inc. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Sunflower Wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the winterization of sunflower oil. This wax consists of long chain, saturated C-42 to C-60 esters. These esters correlate to hardness, crystalline structure, and a high melting point. It functions as a strong gellant and consistency modifier in sticks and emulsions. Sunflower Wax improves oil binding in sticks; and it contributes to hardness, texture, strength and mold release. It can also provide emolliency, film formation and lubricity and is most commonly used in lipsticks and other anhydrous color cosmetics, foundations, mascaras, skin and hair care.
