Brazilian Wax is a natural non-animal based wax that is derived from the leaves of a plant native to northeastern Brazil, the Carnauba palm. It is known as “queen of waxes.” It is obtained from the leaves of the palm tree known in Latin as ‘Copernica Cerifera’, which is also referred to as the “Tree of Life”. The Carnauba palm flourishes in northeastern regions within Brazil, and proliferates naturally along riverbanks, streams and damp low-lands.
Brazilian wax is a prominent ingredient in many cosmetic formulations. It is obtained from the leaves of the Carnauba palm by collecting and drying them, beating them to loosen the wax, then refining and bleaching the wax. Brazilian Wax is considered among the hardest of natural waxes and produces a very durable film. It has a high melt point, enhances oil retention, is valued as a stable co-emulsifier agent and is an exceptional polishing aid. Our Brazilian Wax is 100% pure and cosmetic grade. All Natural.
We use it in our mustache wax as a hardener to produce an ultra-hold for handle bar mustaches. Believe me when I say it will help you keep a stiff upper lip.
