PEG-8 Beeswax is the result of the esterification of the free fatty acids of beeswax with polyethylene glycol. The outcome of this process is a light colored wax with self-emulsifying properties and improved oil gelling capabilities designed to be used in all cosmetic applications. It creates emulsions with a rich texture and glossy appearance.
PEG-8 Beeswax creates lotions that are bright and fluid with enhanced emolliency and spreadability. It will allow the formulator to use up to 60% oil phase. Applications include sunscreens, pomades, hair care fixatives, depilatories, ointments, creams and emulsions.
