How is palm wax made?
Palm wax is made from the fruits of the palm trees of South America and Asia.
The oil palm produces fruits in bundles that are harvested and sent to the palm oil plant. The oils are extracted, sterilized, refined and converted into crude palm oil. The crude palm oil is sent to the palm oil refinery.
The main types of palm wax are produced by cooling the oil and pressing it to separate the high melting point wax.
In order to obtain a complex crystalline wax, the oil is hydrogenated (as in the production of margarine).
Palm oil is distilled without the use of chemicals. In the case of conventional palm wax, the oil is hydrogenated into wax, the process itself does not require harmful chemicals. Certified organic palm wax is obtained by distillation and then cooling and oil separation, this process also does not require any inorganic substances.
