Castor Vegetable Wax Flakes are a derivative of Castor Oil. They are produced by the hydrogenation (chemical combination with hydrogen) of pure castor oil, in the presence of a nickel catalyst.

INCI: Hydrogenated Castor Oil.

Appearance: Solid white flakes with little to no odor.

Uses: Castor Wax is heavily used in the cosmetic industry when a waxy component is needed in a formulation. It also acts as a thickening and moisturizing agent. Examples include eyeliner pencils, anti-antiperspirant sticks, body washes, creams, lotions and lipsticks. Castor wax is also used to make liquid soaps.

Compatibility: Castor Wax is compatible with most animal, vegetable and mineral waxes and a large variety of natural and synthetic resins.

used it in my cold process soap, made my soap so smooth, and hard to touch after 24 hours, love it. I ran out of candelilla wax, so I used castor wax instead and used same SAP value as candellila wax and I'm amaze as how smooth is my soap. and its a lot cheaper too. I make vegan lip balm, Ill use this one instead.

I had high hopes for this wax in a hair pomade recipe that I am trying to reformulate that originally contained beeswax. I am trying to make my hair styling product vegan for a local organic hair salon. The beeswax worked perfectly, but I can not get this wax to give me the same "elastic" type texture that I could get with the beeswax. It is a very hard and brittle wax at room temperature and it takes at least 2 to 3x as long to melt as the beeswax did. I was prepared for the longer melt time as my research into this wax showed that it has a much higher melting point then beeswax does. However it continues to be hard, yet brittle after it has cooled down to room temperature. I've tried 3 adjustments to my original hair pomade recipe with this wax as the replacement for beeswax and I can't even get close to the quality of the product that I had when I was using beeswax. At this point I have no idea what this wax would be good for? It's just so hard and crumbly!

I had zero luck getting this to emulsify in my lotion and body wash how ever it worked great in my deodorant and body bar.
