Sunflower wax is a natural, renewable wax that demonstrates superior gel strength in a wide range of compounds. The height of practicality, sunflower wax gives your systems the benefits of both consumer-positive provenance and stability.
Sunflower wax is compatible with many different oil mediums, producing consistent hard gel structures across a broad range of compounds. The monoesters in sunflower wax are easily solubilized in oils at elevated temperatures, then, as they cool, precipitate out of the oil, forming a solid three-dimensional network.
The wax crystallinity and narrow melt point are critical properties that contribute to gel formation in anhydrous products. As seen in the graph below, the structural strength imparted by the sunflower wax is both consistent and effective across the range of oils.
