Paraffin vs. Natural Waxes

Posted: May 10, 2016

Although paraffin is ultimately derived from organic material, natural waxes have come to mean those from plants, insects, and animals. While there are advantages to using these “green” waxes, they cannot be used interchangeably with paraffin.

We’re experts at incorporating natural sources while still giving you a blend with the characteristics you require. We create versatile wax blends using natural materials such as:

  • Soy wax
  • Hydrogenated triglycerides/tallow
  • Carnauba wax
  • Candelilla wax
  • Palm wax
  • Cottonseed wax
  • Rapeseed wax
