Rice Bran Wax

Rice Bran Wax is a high melting point vegetable wax obtained from winterization of rice bran oil. Rice Bran Wax primarily consists of high molecular weight monoesters ranging from C-46 to C-66. Our refinement process allows the wax to retain policosanols, phospholipids, phytosterols and squalene for superior quality.
