Cera Bellina is a hydrophilic derivative of natural beeswax in which the free fatty acids have been converted to polyglycerols esters. Elimination of the free fatty acid functionalities in beeswax improves the oil gelling and oil retention capability of mono, di, and triglycerides; straight and branched chain esters; and paraffinic hydrocarbons. Stability has also been observed in combination with glycerides, ozokerites, carnauba and candelilla. Cera Bellina has the consistency regulating properties of beeswax and the capability of inhibiting crystallization in the oil phase. Cera Bellina greatly improves stability in dispersions, and gels many oils with relatively low wax concentrations.

The solubility and stability of Cera Bellina is similar to that of beeswax. Products formulated with Cera Bellina produce remarkably stable, smooth gels. In decorative cosmetics, Cera Bellina helps to break up pigment agglomerates by forming a gel network, thereby maintaining an even distribution of ingredients. Cera Bellina also suppresses the fatty acid, fatty alcohol migration and oil syneresis (sweating) in finished stick formulas.
