What are the advantages of using a micronized wax?
Due to the micronized particle size and higher melting point ranges of our waxes, they can be easily mixed into your formulations with high speed dispersion. There is no need to melt or grind our micronized powders. We have done the work for you. They may also be wet-out in a pre-phase (such as oil, silicone, ester, etc.) They may also be added post-emulsification. Our waxes provide a cost-effective method for imparting improved sensorial and optical aesthetics, stability, and structure into both skin care and color formulations.

Solutions

How do I incorporate micronized wax into my formulation?
The best way to incorporate the micronized wax is to wet-out the wax in a compatible pre-phase (such as oil, silicone, ester, etc.) prior to emulsification. They may also be post-added. This can be accomplished using varying energy from lightning agitation to homogenization. For powder formulations, the wax can be added by being pre-dispersed with the pigments, or it can be added at a later step with the other filler powders (Mica, Silica, Talc, etc.). Again, it can be incorporated using varying degrees of energy from Osterizer, to CBM, to Hammer Mill Pulverizer, etc. For further technical assistance specific to a certain formula, please do not hesitate to contact us.
