Care for the environment - There has been quite a bit of press lately about the destruction of rainforests in South-east Asia, home to some of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world, with the threat of losing these forests and destroying the livelihood of native people, orangutan, Sumatran tiger populations and other important wildlife. When we set out to find palm wax, we were not prepared to stock any waxes that were involved in such destruction of the environment and we knew it would not be acceptable to you either, so after many months of research, phone calls, meetings and South East Asia trips, we have partnered with a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
This organization was founded by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and heads of government and industry involved in palm cultivation. The RSPO was founded to develop and define best practices for sustainable palm cultivation, and protection of the environment. If you are looking for an environmentally responsible, non GM palm wax, then our range is what you need.
The making of Palm Wax - The palm tree produces fruit in bunches which is harvested and sent to palm oil mills to undergo sterilization, bunch stripping, oil extraction, oil clarification and purification (the palm kernel has one of the highest oil contents of any plant, so a lot of wax can be grown in a small amount of space). This crude palm oil is then further processed to removal the fatty free acids and coloring (the quality of oil is food grade).
The Refined palm oil then undergoes fractionation by which Palm Oil and Palm Stearin are produced and these in turn can be further fractionated to obtain specialized products including Palm Waxes. All of our palm waxes are made from a 100% natural palm oil based raw materials. The various blends of palm waxes are naturally made/formulated from the many fractions of palm oil leading to exciting and different crystal structures. The crystal structure is formed by the differing rate of solidification of the palm fats.
