Ceresin and other waxes thicken lipid (oil) portion of cosmetics and personal care products and help keep emulsions from separating into their oil and liquid components. These waxes lessen the brittleness of stick products and add strength and stability.In our products we use Ceresin instead of Beeswax in our leave-on Conditioners, styling creams and non-aerosol sprays as it provides antistatic, emulsion stabilizing and hair conditioning properties.
