Carnauba, which is the highest melting point natural wax, can impart gloss, hardness, slip, and improved thermal stability to a variety of applications. It comes from the Carnauba palm that only grows in the northern and northeastern Brazil. Quality and color vary with the age of the leaves. The younger leaves provide the prime #1 yellow color, and the older ones provide the darker T-3 and T-4 wax.
