Kester Wax K-62, a naturally derived medium chain ester wax, has good thermal stability, very narrow thermal phase change, film forming properties and wide compatibility in different solvents. K-62 is widely used as a natural structuring and gelling agent.

Formulators widely use Kester Wax K-62 as a natural structuring and gelling agent in color cosmetics and other sticks. It can be used as a vegan replacement for beeswax in combination with Kester Wax K-60P.
