More Information
Combine phase A ingredients and mix.  Heat to 80°C. Add Phase B with sufficient agitation to obtain a homogenous mixture. Be aware that the mixture will quickly develop high viscosity. In a separate container, combine and heat phase C to 80°C with gentle mixing. Continue mixing until all the wax is melted and the mixture is uniform. Add phase C to phase AB while stirring, and continue to heat until mixture is uniform. Reduce mixer speed to 55 rpm, and continue stirring as the batch cools to room temperature. Cool to approximately 40°C with mixing. Add phase D and mix until homogeneous.
