What it is
Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax is a thick wax derived from the leaves of the Brazilian palm tree Copernicia Cerifera.
What it does
Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax is used to thicken the oil parts of solid products like lipstick to give them their form and structure as well as ensuring a smooth application.
In addition, Carnauba Wax prevents the oil and liquid parts of an emulsion from separating and for this reason, it is very used in those products that need to have a creamy consistency.
Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax can cause allergies.
