Microcrystalline Wax


Microcrystalline waxes are a type of wax produced by de-oiling petrolatum, as part of the petroleum refining process. It is characterized by the fineness of its crystals and is a higher molecular weight saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon. The elastic and adhesive characteristics of microcrystalline waxes are because of its branched chain components. This wax has affinity for paraffin wax and mineral oil due to which it is widely used in oil-based formulations in the cosmetic / pharmaceutical industry. Micro waxes add structural strength and lustre to the final product.
