Helianthus annuus seed cera, ascorbyl palmitate, tocopherol
CosVivet sunflower wax is made from the unrefined oil of sunflower seeds, with added antioxidants (tocopherol and ascorbyl palmitate). The product is COSMOS certified and Kosher, and is delivered in pellet form.
Sunflower wax is a hard-crystalline wax with excellent oil-binding capacity. In stick preparations, the wax contributes to product hardness, acts as a release agent and has a strong influence on heat stability. It’s also an excellent gelling agent, giving pencil preparations, for example, stability, long-lasting shine and a beautiful texture. In emulsions, sunflower wax imparts a dry yet silky feeling to the skin. And since it is difficult to stabilize, it is highly recommended for anhydrous systems.
