Elevance’s waxes are used in candles, polishes and coatings as an alternative to raw materials with supply problems and performance limitations such as paraffin, beeswax and carnuba.
Our modified triglycerides, novel esters and olefins provide naturally derived personal care ingredients with excellent sensory aesthetics and performance. Our innovations are expanding sustainable and renewable product offerings enabling personal care customers to provide unique products and performance in skin, hair and cosmetic applications to meet changing market trends and needs and improve their business results.
