INCI: Microcrystalline WaxProduct Category: Emollient
Strahl & Pitsch offers an extensive range of the finest food-grade Microcrystalline Wax from domestic and international souces.
This wax is derived from residium. It has very minute crystals (microcrystals) and is very flexible, with a greater affinity for oil, which is held tightly in the crystalline latice and does not migrate to the surface.
Strahl & Pitsch maintains sizable inventories of this multi-purpose wax, providing a consistent supply of known quality waxes in what is otherwise an ever-changing world market.
This wax is compatible with most vegetable and mineral waxes and a large variety of natural and synthetic resins.
