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.

Review This Product
Rating: Star
I use Castor Oil Wax Flakes in lotions, creams, lip balms, and candles. For lotions and creams, I prefer it to PEG-40 Castor Oil to avoid possible ethylene oxides and 1,4-dioxane. I usually mix this with palm stearic acid and cetyl alcohol to make my own emulsifier. Makes very thick and moisturizing cream.

The use of Castor Wax Flakes is not clearly defined. I had purchased some of this product in order to see its effect on my already established recipes. The known uses are for lipsticks and the melting point is the same as Bees Wax.

However this is a thickening agent. Unlike Bees Wax it does not get hard when added to a recipe. I used some of it in place of my Bees Wax and found that it did thicken. But what was amazing is that it tended to stabilize my lip balm for higher temperatures.

I found that by adding some Castor Flakes to my product it kept it from running and melting in high temperatures around 200 F. In an instance like this, it would actually make your lip balms more stable and less runny in the hot summer months. I do not like when I purchase a tube and open it after being in the car and it runs out all over the car seat. This is something that I am going to experiment with more.
