KahlWax Debuts New Products

May 2, 2014

Soft waxes are new from KahlWax; they condition the skin and make it soft to the touch, imparting a luxurious skin feel, according to the company. Due to low melting points, the following ingredients are ideal for lip care, massage products, skin care and mascara.

Kahlwax 2121 offers all the advantages of argan oil without any of the disadvantages: the wax is durable and has a stable odor and color. It revitalizes and protects the skin, improving elasticity. Used in hair applications, it adds shine and conditions the scalp.
Kahlwax 6237 is the new rapeseed wax by KahlWax. Its buttery consistency bridges the gap between harder waxes and liquid emollients. In end products, it makes the skin feel soft, protects against dehydration and boosts the skin’s elasticity. It also helps to diminish the appearance of skin discoloration and scars. It adds beautiful shine to the hair and conditions the scalp.

Kahlwax 6237 is ideal for massage candles. If emulsion formulations call for waxes with a higher melting point then KahlWax’s water-soluble/self emulsifying waxes are said to be the solution. They provide many benefits in the end product, including a pleasantly light sensation on the skin, and they enhance the appearance of the skin.

Kahlwax 5109 is highly suitable for use in oil/water formulations. It is based on sunflower wax and carnauba wax. Meanwhile, Kahlwax 5115 combines the benefits of rice wax and myrica wax and has been specially optimized for use in oil/water formulations.

The new KahlPhytoWax 9928 is based on pure, plant-derived waxes and was specially developed as an alternative to beeswax. This wax is the perfect solution for formulations without animal products; e.g. in vegan products.
