personal care & cosmetics

For personal care and cosmetic applications, Koster Keunen produces exclusive Kester (natural esters) Waxes. They contain ideal properties for gelling, skin feel and moisturization. Waxes for personal care include fruit waxes, natural wax dispersions and the water-soluble waxes, PEG Beeswax and PEG Carnauba.

ink waxes

We developed specialty waxes for inks and coatings. These unique Kester (ester) Waxes enhance surface properties and water resistance. They work as effective matting agents. To incorporate waxes into printing inks, our processes produce solvent-containing dispersions and pastes, precipitation formulations and aqueous dispersions.

Food, Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals Waxes

We manufacture a full line of waxes, emulsifiers, and butters that meet the strict standards of the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP), a nonprofit scientific organization. The USP sets standards for the identity, strength, quality and purity of medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide.

industrial household waxes

This includes waxes, leather care, stone and other surface protectors. Our emulsifiers, esters, waxes and derivatives act as wetters, dispersants, gelling aids and emollients.
