Inci:Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil

A totally natural and vegan blended wax based on ethically and non GMO sourced soya - a great alternative wax for making healing balms, lip balms and candles.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A totally natural and vegan blended wax based on ethically and non GMO sourced soya.
 
100% Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (hydrogenated from a freezing point of -8ºC to a melting point of approximately 66-72ºC).
 
During this hydrogenation process the unsaturated fatty acids in the soya oil becomes saturated and therefore solid.Soya wax can also be used in heavy night creams or protective hand creams.
Soya Wax is most often used to make candles because it is a great alternative to paraffin wax and it burns slower with a much cleaner flame and no smoke.
 
It has excellent fragrance holding qualities and throws the fragrance very well when burning.
 
For use in natural cosmetics, soya wax gives a very good consistency to lip balms and lipsticks.
 

HOW TO USE IT

Use at 1% - 100%.It is oil and fat soluble and insoluble in water.As it is heat stable, it can be melted in the stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotion.
 
How to adjust existing beeswax recipes:
To make vegan lip balms in lip balm cylinders, you can replace the beeswax with soya wax.

As soya wax has a higher melting point than beeswax, you need approximately 15% less soya wax in your recipe so, if you are using 20% of beeswax in your recipe, you only need to use 17% of soya wax, replacing the 3% difference with 3% of vegetable oil.
