Other products such as crayons, candles and caulk to sealants and fine polishes start with microcrystalline wax. PLEASE CALL FOR CASE PRICING AND AVAILABILITY. 1- Microcrystalline waxes have great affinity for oil, which remains occluded in it and makes deep deoiling of these waxes very difficult. The low oil content microcrystalline waxes are required in various applications. The usual deoiling processes involve treatment with certain organic solvents such as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), tolune, and dichloromethane at low temperatures and use of expensive equipment and methods. 2- General definition: Natural ingredients are grown, harvested, raised, and processed in an ecological manner. They are NOT produced synthetically or extracted using petrochemicals. Natural ingredients are also not extracted using anything other than natural ingredients as solvents. Unfortunately, there is no official, U.S. government-regulated definition for the term natural (pertaining to the natural products and cleaners industry). However, the FDA refers to natural ingredients as "ingredients extracted directly from plants or animal products as opposed to being produced synthetically."

A larger than typical wick is usually necessary when using Polyethylene Wax as an additive. Addition will also help with color distribution. Polyethylene Wax will prevent mottling. Use should be limited to less than 2%. quote from supplier... "When we made the soy/paraffin pillar candles for xxxxxx Candle we used it to lock in fragrance, make the surface shiny & make the pillar tougher because soy waxes have almost no flexibility and are very brittle."
