Kester Wax K80H
Odor: characteristic
Use: This high melting very hard synthetic ester wax is a synthetic version of the monoester fraction of beeswax. Kester Wax K80H contains straight chain esters with chain lengths between ca. C38 and C68 and is manufactured from natural fatty acids and synthetic fatty alcohols. In melting point and hardness Kester Wax K80H is similar to carnauba wax and is capable of replacing that natural wax in many formulations.

Kester Wax K82P-VS
Odor: characteristic
Use: As a spin-off product of K82P we have developed Kesterwax K82P-VS. This wax shows even softer and improved plasticizing properties that increase the formulation window for difficult mixtures (hard waxes / crystallization issues). Because of its longer chain lengths and increased polarity it exerts an even more pronounced influence on rheology and texture, binding, adhesion, and pigment dispersion. Its excellent pigment compatibility improves its application in pencils and sun care products.

Kester Wax K82P
Odor: characteristic
Use: This specialty wax is created to mimic the complex polyester fraction of beeswax, which gives beeswax its unique plastic properties. Kester Wax K82P contains a range of hydroxy polyesters with chain lengths between ca. 56 and 76 carbon atoms and is manufactured from natural fatty acids and synthetic fatty alcohols. Kester Wax K82P gels most cosmetic oils showing good oil retention.

Permulgin 3301
Odor: characteristic
Use: Permulgin 3301 (Synthetic Beeswax) is a wax mixture simulating the properties of natural beeswax. It consists of hydrocarbon waxes, vegetable fatty acid and hydrogenated vegetable oil. We also offer a non-animal version: Permulgin 3301N.

Permulgin 3310
Odor: characteristic
Use: Permulgin 3310 is an off-white wax consisting of a special blend of waxes with properties somewhat similar to beeswax.

Permulgin 3621
Odor: characteristic
Use: Permulgin 3621 is a special blend of waxes offering an alternative to natural beeswax. Permulgin 3621 imparts structure, stability and gloss to colour cosmetics. Permulgin 3621 is easily emulsified by saponification. Permulgin 3621 functions as an emulsifier, bodying agent and stabiliser for both o/w and w/o emulsions, such as cold creams, hair styling creams and sun tan creams.
