Eroma is the largest wholesaler of soy wax in Australia. We stock the high end Summit range of soy waxes and also the Golden Brands range of Soy Wax.
The making of soy wax commences with soybeans from which the oil is separated. This oil is then purified to give pristine soybean oil which then goes through a process called 'hydrogenation', turning it into a solid.
Depending on the blend, there may be a small amount of vegetable botanical oils added to give the waxes their unparalleled characteristics and performances. These ingredients are processed under close supervision with careful regard for secrecy. Only a select few people know the actual ingredients.
All our palm waxes are non-GM modified, 100% palm oil based, natural and environmentally friendly. During solidification, palm wax forms an amazing pattern of crystal structures. It is one of the hardest natural waxes, meaning it is ideal for free-standing pillar candles, ships well in all climates and tolerates a high fragrance load to enhance your scent throw. The following is some benefits of using palm wax:
If you are looking for an environmentally responsible, non-genetically modified palm wax, then our range is what you need. There has been quite a bit of press lately about the destruction of rainforests in South-East Asia, home to some of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world, with the threat of losing these forests and destroying the livelihood of native people, animals such as the orangutan, Sumatran tiger populations and other important wildlife.
We set out to find sustainable palm wax and, therefore, partnered with a member of the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This organisation was founded by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), government bodies and industry involved in palm cultivation. The RSPO was founded to develop and define best practices for sustainable palm cultivation and to protect the environment.
The palm tree produces fruits in bunches which are then harvested and sent to palm oil mills to undergo sterilisation, bunch stripping, oil extraction, oil clarification and purification. The palm kernel has one of the highest oil contents of any plant, so a lot of wax can be grown in a small amount of space. This crude palm oil is then further processed to remove the fatty free acids and colouring. The quality of oil is food grade.
The refined palm oil then undergoes fractionation, by which Palm Olein and Palm Stearin are produced and these in turn can be further fractionated to obtain specialised products, including palm waxes. All of our palm waxes are made from 100% natural palm oil based raw materials. The various blends of palm waxes are naturally made/formulated from the many fractions of palm oil leading to exciting and different crystal structures. The crystal structure is formed by the differing rate of solidification of the palm fats.
Paraffin is a container wax. Paraffin wax is a derivative of petroleum and is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil. It is one of the most popular kinds of wax used in candle making as it is very efficient at releasing the fragrance oil due to its molecular structure. Paraffin-type waxes will maximise your scent throw.
