Pretty sure you have heard about paraffin wax and if you haven't, with a simple search on Google, you will find many sources to read about it. One of the best sources is Wikipedia and we recommend you to take a look at it. Fortunately we're not at the chemistry class and we're not going to talk about the molecules and atoms. Here we provide some general information about our products and hope these are enough for you as a businessman. If you're looking for more technical info, you can contact us anytime but please not in the weekends.
We can categorize paraffin wax in two, industrial grade and food grade. Each of these categories, have its own subsets. In industrial grade, we usually have semi-refined paraffin wax which its oil content is between 1 to 5 % based on the quality of the paraffin. But in food grade, we have just fully refined paraffin wax which has oil content under 1% and its aromatics were excluded from the paraffin itself. Food grade has no smell and can be used in different applications such as cosmetics, medical and food.
