Carnaubawax Flakes

Carnauba wax is made from the leaves of the Brazilian palm species Copernicia Prunifera. The leaves of this palm are coated with wax to protect them from drying out. A small part of these leaves is harvested annually. The carnauba wax extracted from them is melted, cleaned, sieved and sold in flakes. It is the hardest of all animal and vegetable waxes. With a high melting point and a high gloss level, it is used in a wide variety of applications.
