Wat is biologic carnauba wax?

Organic carnauba wax, also known as cera carnauba, is a valuable natural product extracted from the leaves of the Brazilian carnauba palm, also known as Copernicia prunifera.

The carnauba palm plays an important role in the local culture and economy, and is known as “the tree of life” for its versatile uses and economic value.

How is biologic cera carnauba made?

The production process of cera carnauba begins with the careful harvesting of the leaves of the carnauba palm. It is essential to select only mature leaves, as these contain the highest concentration of valuable wax. The leaves are then dried.

After drying, the leaves are ground into a fine powder, rich in valuable wax. The powder is then treated with solvents, which absorb the wax molecules and separate them from other impurities. Finally, this extract is purified and refined to ensure the highest quality and purity. This final product is the carnauba wax.
