INCI :Myrica Pubescens Fruit Wax

Myrica wax is extracted from the berry shells of the Myrica Pubescens tree native to Latin America. It is a shell wax and covers the small, greyish berries to protect them from moisture loss and environmental pollution. The berries are harvested sustainably and monitored by the UEBT (Union for Ethical Bio Trade). No chemicals are used to collect and clean Myrica fruit wax. The wax is very unique as it has no double limits and is more of a naturally "hydrogenated" but solid oil. Due to its chemical structure (iodine value <2) it is very resistant to oxidation and therefore has no risk of becoming rancid. Myrica fruit wax combines a low melting point of 45-55°C with a high hardness value.

This combination of properties gives Myrica cerifera fruit wax a very good spreadability in cosmetic formulations. A simple body lotion gets a silky, rich feel by adding 2-3% Myrica fruit wax.  Myrica Fruit Wax reduces the tackiness of emulsions and cream gels, gives hair styling products excellent adhesive properties and facilitates combing when used in hair-conditioners.
