What is the composition of a low fusion wax?


In protocols Starpil We always recommend The combination of low fusion waxes with Roll-on or can system. The most sensitive areas, such as English, armpits and facial with low fusion wax and broader areas, such as legs, back, etc., wax in role or can.

Low fusion wax is also known as hot wax.

One of the main raw materials that meets the important function of adherence to wax is the rosin, a resin of natural origin. This resin is extracted from a special pine, which is cultivated in a sustainable and controlled way to perform a careful extraction of the resin.

There are several qualities of colophonies that are classified into 6 (from A to F). The poor quality are crystallized forming abyetic acid in only 15 minutes and those of high quality form these microparticles in 4 hours. These microparticles make the wax look of very poor quality, breaking into their extraction. In Starpil We use for all our low fusion waxes the qualities A and B. The two best qualities that guarantee us that will not crystallize until after 4 hours. Our low fusion waxes, with a good application technique, do not break and allow the professional to work comfortably.

Another very important component in the chemical composition of our waxes is the Bee wax (ALBA Wax). This component fulfills a very important role within the formulation of the wax. It is very common to find it in different moisturizing cosmetic formulas, emollient, healing, etc. In a wax, above all, it fulfills its most remarkable property is that it lowers the melting point that gives it malleability and plasticity, these two characteristics prevent the wax to break, a very important point at the time of working for the professional. Our waxes are removed from the skin on a single plate, do not break. With a good application technique we also leave no wax on the skin. It is very important to take it into account, if we do not leave wax remains on the skin of our client, we minimize the skin irritation that can cause wanting to remove remains of attached product.

We also use different types of paraffins in our formulas. This raw material meets the function of modifying the melting point and also gives plasticity to the product.

Another component that we can find in our waxes is titanium dioxide. This is a dust of mineral origin and what it does is that the wax is more creamy making it more selective, this means that creamy waxes, with titanium dioxide do not have so much affinity for the skin structure and if by hair. In this way, not adhering so much to the skin is much more careful and friendly to her. We recommend applying this type of wax in more reactive, sensitive skin, skins that have exposed the sun and are brunette and skins that have a slight peeling due to cosmetic dehydration.

Something also we have a lot of in mind is the color and perfume of the wax. When practice it is nice to work with beautiful products for the professional and for the final customer. We can play with the seasons of the year, use for example our ChocoTrapey wax in winter and in summer with La Malva.
