Natural Wax Uses

As awareness and concern for consumer health rise, more and more people are turning to natural wax products. Because these solutions are derived from organic sources like plants and animals and can be blended to achieve unique performance characteristics, they have become a go-to ingredient for manufacturers and consumers alike.

There are two primary types of natural waxes — plant and animal waxes. Though both of these substances are natural, they possess unique qualities and are often used in different industries and applications. Knowing the differences between these two wax types can help you determine which is better for your specific need.

Animal Waxes

Animal waxes are derived from natural animal and insect secretions and typically comprise wax esters from carboxylic alcohols and fatty acids. There are four common types of animal waxes:

  • Beeswax: Worker bees produce beeswax in the hive and use it to build honeycomb cells. The most widely used animal wax variety, this natural wax is often found in cosmetics and candles.
  • Lanolin: Also called wool grease or wool wax, lanolin is produced by animals with wool, such as sheep. This natural wax is useful for many applications, like lip balms, lotions, creams, lipsticks, rust-proof coatings and even softeners for baseball gloves.
  • Tallow: Tallow is an inexpensive natural wax that comes from animal fat — usually beef. This substance is commonly used to make slow-burning emergency candles and can act as a leather conditioner or lubricant.
  • Ambergris: This expensive natural wax comes from sperm whale intestines. It can enhance the flavors of foods and make perfume fragrances last longer.

Plant Waxes

The composition of plant waxes depends on the plant species and geographic location, though they usually contain unesterified hydrocarbons. There are various plant waxes available, such as:

  • Carnauba: This natural wax comes from the leaves of carnauba palm trees and is often referred to as palm wax. Its shiny finish makes it useful for creating shoe, floor, furniture and car polishes, as well as cosmetic and personal care products like creams, lotions, lipsticks and lip balms.
  • Soy: Another common plant-based wax, soy wax comes from soybean oil and is often found in cosmetics and candles.
  • Candelilla: You can find this wax in the leaves of the Candelilla shrub, which is found in northern Mexico and the southwestern U.S. Its oil compatibility, hardness and gelling properties make it ideal for lipsticks, mascara, lip balms and other colored cosmetics.
  • Laurel: Laurel wax is a vegetable wax derived from the fruit of the Myrica pubescens bush. Its hard and stable properties make it useful for manufacturing cosmetics, personal care products and hair conditioners.
