Copernicia Cerifera Cera

A vegetable wax that comes from the leaves of the Brazilian tropical palm tree, Copernicia cerifera. Like other types of wax, it is used to stabilize and add volume to products or to hold stick-type formulas. It is the hardest natural wax with a high melting point (around 85C) and high gloss, making it a good choice of wax for lip products.
