Carnauba wax is a very hard, light yellow, high melt vegetable wax supplied in flake form. Carnauba wax is derived from the leaves of the carnauba palm, native to Brazil. This wax is extremely hard and is used to produce a glossy finish in automotive waxes, shoe polishes and floor and wood polishes. It is also used in tablet and candy coatings. Carnauba wax is often used in conjunction with beeswax or candelilla in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Carnauba wax flakes can be used in lip products, stick formulations, body butters, creams, lotions and hair pomades.
