cultivated for many years

   We offer the high-performance waxes developed by Japan Natural Products (JNP). The latest wax, FLORA WAX BCC-1, is a 100% natural wax preventing the Exudation Phenomenon of a perfectly even a natural lipstick. JNP screened some kinds of natural wax carefully and blended them at the optimum ratio found uniquely, and as a result, this useful and eco-friendly wax has been completed.

Creating a natural lipstick without
the exudation

   A big problem in making a natural lipstick by conventional natural wax and natural oil is the Exudation Phenomenon that oil exudes to its surface at high temperature. Once the exudation occurs, the surface leaves countless spots, and the beauty of appearance is damaged. There are the three techniques for preventing the exudation as below.

I.   Designing a formulation that the structure securing the volume of a lipstick is completed above the target temperature you want to prevent the exudation.
II.   Heating a mold before pouring the melting bulk, and then reducing its heat slowly until the target temperature.
III.   Using optimum wax forming the structure securing the volume above the target temperature.

   In this page, we introduce an effective wax for III.

   We heated the two lipsticks (right: FLORA WAX BCC-1; left: conventional natural waxes (Beeswax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, and  Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax)) up to 45℃ and compared their appearance. As a result, the exudation occurred at the lipstick with conventional natural waxes, while it did not occur at the one with FLORA WAX BCC-1.
