Description: Paraffin wax is a white, tasteless, and odourless solid that is derived from saturated hydrocarbons such as petroleum or coal. It helps make an admirable gloss and is ideal to use in candle-making and cosmetics.

Paraffin wax is the most popular ingredient in candle-making nowadays. It easily melts and cools at high temperatures compared to other waxes. It can carry high amounts of fragrance load making it the primary source of many luxurious candles that provide long-lasting scent. It is highly cost-effective and can produce you high-quality candles. For optimal results, it is recommended to add stearic acid for a longer burning candle experience.

In cosmetics, paraffin wax is a perfect ingredient in making lipsticks and balms, makeup, and moisturisers. It works as a natural emollient that helps hydrate the skin to make it appear soft and glowing. It is even used in spas and salons for its incredible after-effect glow.

Chapped and calloused hands/feet are not a problem with paraffin wax. It works by moisturising the skin while it rubs away dead skin cells. Treat your hands and feet by soaking them in warm water that is filled with paraffin wax for 5-10 minutes. For a better experience, infuse the wax with cucumber fruit floral water and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Do this and you can immediately feel the difference right away.

Caution: Paraffin wax should not be used near and around an open wound. Discontinue use if skin irritation occurs.
