Paraffin wax is derived from crude oil derivatives that are purified and refined. The result is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic, odor-free product. To convert this wax into an emulsion, it is combined with surfactants, stabilizers and other ingredients to form a stable mixture that won’t separate and can be used as an additive or an end-use product. These emulsions can be created by mixing (called a dispersion) or by homogenization, where the ingredients are processed through homogenizers until they form an aqueous solution.
