What is Microcrystalline Wax?

Microcrystalline wax, also known as crystalline wax or microcrystalline wax ester, is a white amorphous amorphous solid wax material. Its main component is composed of branched-chain saturated hydrocarbons with carbon atoms between C31 and C70. It also contains a small amount of cyclic and linear hydrocarbons, and is odorless and tasteless. The molecular weight of microcrystalline wax is usually between 580 and 700, has a high melting point and viscosity, and has good chemical stability.

Microcrystalline Wax Uses

1. Cosmetics and personal care products
Base component: The odorless and tasteless properties of microcrystalline wax, as well as its good skin compatibility, make it an ideal base for creams, lotions, lipsticks, eyeliners, mascara and other cosmetics, providing a smooth texture and stable structure.
Sealing and moisturizing: Although microcrystalline wax itself is not a powerful moisturizer, the film it forms can effectively reduce skin water evaporation and assist in moisturizing.
Gloss enhancement: In nail polish and makeup, microcrystalline wax enhances the gloss of the product, providing a long-lasting smooth finish.

2. Food industry
Coating agent: Due to its good film-forming properties, microcrystalline wax is often used as a surface coating for fruits, candies and chocolates. It not only provides a beautiful luster, but also extends the shelf life of food.
Release agent: In food processing, microcrystalline wax can be used as a release agent to facilitate the removal of products from the mold and reduce damage.

3. Pharmaceutical field
Pharmaceutical preparations: Microcrystalline wax is used as a coating material in drug sustained-release systems to control the release rate of the drug and increase the stability of the drug.
Surgery: In some surgical procedures, microcrystalline wax can be used as a temporary sealant or protective film.

4. Candles and aromatherapy products
Candle manufacturing: The high melting point and good burning performance of microcrystalline wax make it a high-quality raw material for candle manufacturing, which can increase the hardness and burning time of candles.
Aromatherapy wax flakes and wax blocks: In aromatherapy products, microcrystalline wax serves as a carrier to slowly release fragrance.

5. Industrial and household products
Polishes and Polishes: Used to polish and polish furniture, cars, leather, floors and more to provide a long-lasting shine and protective layer.
Anti-rust agent: The coating of microcrystalline wax can effectively prevent metal surfaces from rusting and extend the service life of machinery and tools.
Printing ink: As an additive to ink, it improves the rheology of ink and enhances the gloss and durability of printed matter.

6. Agriculture
Fruit preservation: The coating of microcrystalline wax can reduce the evaporation of water in the fruit, reduce the respiration rate, extend the shelf life of the fruit, and reduce damage during transportation.

7. Arts and crafts
Wax art and sculpture: Artists use the plasticity and stability of microcrystalline wax to create wax figures and sculpture models, and can also be used as materials for batik and encaustic paintings.

Prominent Applications of Microcrystalline Wax in Cosmetics

Molecular structure and morphology: Microcrystalline wax is composed of branched-chain saturated hydrocarbons with high carbon numbers. These long-chain molecules are highly non-polar and poorly crystalline. This allows microcrystalline wax to exist in the form of fine crystals in cosmetic formulations, making it easy to mix with other oily or water-based ingredients, providing ideal texture-modifying functions.

Adjust viscosity and texture: Microcrystalline wax can change the rheological properties of the product by adjusting the ratio of oil phase to water phase in cosmetics, thereby controlling the viscosity of cosmetics. Its addition can make the product texture richer while avoiding greasiness, giving users a silky and comfortable experience.

Form a protective film: Based on its hydrophobic characteristics, microcrystalline wax can form a thin protective film on the skin surface, effectively locking in moisture, reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL), and enhancing the moisturizing effect of cosmetics. This property is essential for maintaining skin barrier function and is particularly useful in care products for dry or sensitive skin.

Stable formula and extended shelf life: Microcrystalline wax has high chemical stability and is not easily oxidized or deteriorated. Therefore, it can stabilize the active ingredients in cosmetics and prevent their degradation, thereby extending the shelf life of the product. In addition, as an emulsion stabilizer, it helps maintain the uniformity and stability of the water-oil system and prevents delamination or precipitation.

Optical properties and gloss enhancement: The small crystal structure of microcrystalline wax scatters light, providing cosmetics with a natural gloss and enhancing the appearance of skin’s health and plumpness. This is particularly important for makeup products such as lipsticks and foundations, which can enhance the aesthetic appeal of the product.

Pigment dispersion and color stability: Microcrystalline wax serves as a carrier to promote the uniform dispersion of pigments, avoid the formation of stains, and ensure the stability and durability of cosmetic colors. This is critical to ensure product consistency and consumer satisfaction.
