Is your palm wax 100% natural?
Palm oil itself is a steam distilled pure essential oil. Most palm plantations use conventional
agricultural methods. However, there is a growing interest in organic farming, and we purchase
certified organic palm wax from Colombia and Brazil.
Some of the palm wax is made by chilling the oil and spinning it around to isolate the oils
(waxes) with the highest melt point. In order to obtain the harder, crystalline wax, the oil is
hydrogenated (the same process used to make margarine).
