Through a hydrogenation process, liquid vegetable oils can be turned into semi-solid or solid pastes. This results in a higher melting point of the oil and an excellent stability in the final formulation. Hydrogenated vegetable oils are great alternatives to microcrystalline waxes and can be used in various applications.
