Castorwax™ MP-70 Hydrogenated Castor Oil for Personal Care

A wax-like compound obtained by the controlled hydrogenation of pure castor oil. The principal constituent is glycerol tris (12-hydroxystearate), also known as opal wax. Castorwax is a hard, brittle, high melting point wax that is insoluble in most organic solvents but is highly compatible with most resins and waxes.

IINCI: Hydrogenated Castor Oil

Form: Flake

Properties: Solid emollient (melting point 70°C). Vegetable-derived, tasteless, nearly odorless. In the oil phase of oil/water emulsions, it functions as an internal phase thickener and emollient. Occlusive. Reduces trans-epidermal water loss, hydrates the skin through humectancy via hydrogen bonding between water and the material’s hydroxyl groups.
Applications: Suspensoid antiperspirant sticks, cosmetic pencils, lipsticks, creams, and lotions.
