What is Refined Paraffin Wax?

Paraffin wax is a mixture of hydrocarbons extracted from petroleum and is a type of mineral wax. It is obtained from the lubricating oil fraction obtained by distillation of crude oil through solvent refining, solvent dewaxing or wax freeze crystallization, press dewaxing and other processes to obtain wax paste, which is then further deoiled and refined to finally form flakes or needles. Crystals. Paraffin wax is mainly composed of straight-chain alkanes with carbon atoms usually between 18 and 30. These alkanes account for about 80% to 95% of the paraffin content, and the rest are branched alkanes and monocyclic cycloalkanes with long side chains.

Refined Paraffin Wax Uses

1. Candle making
Melting point control: The melting point of Refined Paraffin Wax is moderate and easy to adjust. By changing the mixing ratio of paraffin wax, the burning speed and melting temperature of the candle can be precisely controlled to meet the needs of different types of candle art.
Stable combustion: The long-chain alkanes in paraffin wax have good oxidation stability, making the candle burn with a stable flame and less smoke and odor.

2. Packaging materials
Waterproof and moisture-proof: The hydrophobicity of paraffin makes it an ideal moisture-proof and waterproof packaging coating for food and items, such as wax paper and fruit cling film. By coating paraffin on the surface of the paper or film, a barrier layer is formed.
Edibility: Some paraffins meet food contact safety standards and are used in oral medicine and food packaging to ensure the safety of the material.

3. Rubber and plastics industry
Modifying additives: Adding Refined Paraffin Wax to rubber can improve its aging resistance, increase flexibility, reduce friction coefficient, and serve as an internal lubricant to improve processing performance.
Plastic additives: As an external lubricant, paraffin wax can improve the demoulding properties of plastic products, reduce mold wear, and improve production efficiency.

4. Electronic industry
Insulating materials: The electrical insulation properties of paraffin make it useful for the isolation and protection of electrical components to prevent short circuits and corrosion, such as cable joints and sealing of electronic components.

5. Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics
Matrix material: Paraffin is used as the matrix of ointments and suppositories in the pharmaceutical field to provide shape maintenance and drug release control.
Cosmetic additives: In cosmetics, paraffin is used as a stabilizer and thickener to increase product texture, such as in the manufacture of lipsticks and skin creams.

6. Other industrial applications
Fibreboard and Canvas: Refined Paraffin Wax treatment enhances the material’s water resistance and durability.
Fruit preservation: Apply to the surface of fruits to form a protective layer, reduce water evaporation, and extend the shelf life.
Raw materials for detergents and emulsifiers: Through chemical oxidation, paraffin wax can be converted into synthetic fatty acids, which can further synthesize surfactants such as detergents and emulsifiers.
Chemical synthesis precursors
Synthetic fatty acids: Paraffin wax can be used as a raw material to produce fatty acids through oxidation reactions, which are then used to produce various chemicals, such as soaps, lubricants, and surfactants.

Prominent Applications of Paraffin in Cosmetics

Moisturizing and moisturizing: Liquid paraffin, as a hydrocarbon, can form a thin oil film covering the skin surface, reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL), thereby achieving a moisturizing effect. This is especially beneficial for dry skin, helping to maintain the skin’s moisture balance and reduce the tightness caused by dryness.

Softening and Smoothing: As an emollient, Refined Paraffin Wax can add a silky feel to cosmetics, making the product spread easily on the skin while giving the skin a soft and smooth appearance. This helps enhance the makeup application experience, such as providing a smooth application feel in lipstick and eyeshadow.

Stable formula: Due to its high chemical stability and resistance to oxidation by oxygen in the air, Refined Paraffin Wax can increase the stability of cosmetic formulas, prevent the product from deteriorating or delaminating due to environmental factors (such as temperature changes), and extend the shelf life of the product.

Antistatic effect: In hair care products, the antistatic properties of liquid paraffin help reduce hair static electricity, making the hair easier to comb and look smoother and shiny.

Film-forming agent: In some products such as nail polish and waterproof cosmetics, Refined Paraffin Wax can be used as a film-forming agent to form a thin film to enhance the durability and waterproofness of the product.

Solvent and carrier: As a solvent, paraffin wax can dissolve active ingredients or fragrances in a variety of cosmetics, helping them to be evenly dispersed in the formula for easy absorption by the skin or release of fragrance when used.

Replaces natural waxes: Due to cost-effectiveness and stability of supply, paraffin wax is often used as an economical alternative to natural waxes such as beeswax, providing necessary structural support and texture in cosmetics such as lipsticks and mascara.
