Rice wax is a pale yellow wax and is generated as by-product of the preparation of Rice bran oil. A unique
milling, extraction, and refining process results in edible oil, waxy side-products, and crude wax. The latter is used for the
production of Rice bran wax which mainly consists of esters of C 16 -C 24 fatty acids and higher alcohols (C 26 -C 32 ).
Rice bran wax imparts a silky skin feel and reduces stickiness of emulsions. It is added to balms and butters to impart consistency , improve stability at high temperature and impart a matt optic. It is applied in all hair and skin care products specially in stick formulations such as lipstick, deodorant balms, hair styling wax, facial balm sticks and foundation sticks. Its melting point is in the range of carnauba wax and slightly higher than candelilla wax. It is a nice substitute for beeswax in vegan products and since its melting point is higher than bees wax, you need to reduce the dosage of the wax when replacing beeswax with rice bran wax.
