General: Our emulsifying wax is sourced from naturally occurring plant fats and esters.
Skin Benefits: Vegetable emulsifying wax is what make our products go on without a greasy, sticky feeling. It allows water and oil molecules to sit right next to each other, creating a smooth, non-watery, moisturizing, non-greasy consistency. Many products benefit from this vegetable product, including Grapefruit Hand & Body Lotion, Oregon Blossoms Hydrating Mask, and Youth in Bloom Day Cream.

Method of Extraction: Vegetable wax is treated with a detergent (typically sodium dodecyl sulfate) to create a clear, waxy substance that allows oil and water to combine into a smooth emulsion.
