Sunflower Wax for Candle Making

Sunflower wax is made from the hydrogenation of sunflower oil, which is extracted from the seed of the plant. It has a solid texture, is white in color and has a neutral odor. It is the smart choice for candle makers and manufacturers who are focused using more economical, more natural, and more sustainable products for high-quality candle making than using petroleum-based products. It contains no ingredients with animal or mineral/petroleum origin. NatureWax® sunflower wax has many benefits for the small candle maker and large manufacturer alike.
