Kester Wax K-24, a low molecular weight natural ester, provides a natural that is highly compatible with most cosmetic ingredients. It is certified by the Natural Products Association (NPA) and accepted by the strictest guidelines in the natural community.

Formulation Guidelines: K-24 will give a dry and powdery feel on the skin alone. When combined with other oils, esters and sunscreens, it works to “de-grease” formulations. Scientists can regulate the esthetics of their product by using K-24 without producing the occlusive skin feel found using esters and oils alone.
