Waxes / Consistency Factors

Waxes and consistency factors play a significant role as ingredients while manufacturing cosmetics. While adding waxes makes the cosmetic formulation resistant to moisture, oxidization and microbial attack; consistency factors (hydrophilic waxes), impart the desired consistency and help to enhance the stability and viscosity of an emulsion. Waxes can be animal based, plant based, mineral based or synthetic.
