What We Do to Make Your Products Better

We’re Koster Keunen, one of the world’s leaders producing beeswax. That’s because we’ve made products using the science of wax for more than 150 years. We started making candles with beeswax in 1852.

Today we process, refine and market natural and synthetic waxes for companies like yours. We adapt traditional waxes for versatile uses that meet the changing product needs of the contemporary world.

Our chemists develop unique properties that improve a broad range of products. We formulate wax to —

  • Thicken liquids as a rheology modifier
  • Be an emulsifier to keep unlike ingredients together
  • Reduce surface friction as a slip agent
  • Enhance pigment dispersion
  • Serve as natural exfoliant
  • Provide a coating for pills
