Did you know many traditional Valentine’s Day gifts contain wax? Learn about three Valentine’s Day gifts that contain wax.
The card you send to your loved one may be coated in wax depending on the type of paper it is made from. Some papers are coated in a thin layer of wax to make them more durable.
The sweet treats you enjoy on Valentine’s Day may have food-grade wax in them. Paraffin wax is a common ingredient in chocolates. The wax gives the chocolate a shiny coating and helps keep it shelf-stable.
Gummy candies also contain wax to give them a shiny finish. Carnauba wax is a common wax found in gummy candy.
Some Champagne bottles may be sealed with bottle sealing wax. The wax is used to keep the drink sealed and add a pretty decorative finish. Our bottle sealing waxes are available in a variety of colors and finishes, including metallic and pearl.
