Personal Care Naturwachse für die kosmetische Anwendung

Natural and vegetable waxes

The main area of application for waxes is the modification of consistency in a cosmetic application. Thus, waxes exert a major influence on the texture and feel of the final product that goes to the consumer.

From beeswax, carnauba wax, candelilla wax, rice bran wax to wax blends and wax specialties, we offer a wide selection of natural waxes. Available in conventional and organic quality.

HOC represents Koster Keunen B.V. in Germany – one of the world's leading manufacturers of natural waxes. A wide range of quality waxes are produced at the Bladel site in Holland.

 Personal Care Soap Noodles - Seifengrundstoffe

Soap Noodles (soap bases)

Soaps are the oldest cosmetic products known to mankind. Recipes for the production of soaps for body cleansing are already mentioned in the cuneiform writings of the ancient Babylonians. Today, surfactants have partially taken over the function of soaps as detergents, but many cosmetic products still contain natural soaps. EVYAP is one of the leading manufacturers of soaps and soap raw materials. From Multi Purpose and Translucent to Medicated and Premium Soaps.

Vegetable fatty acids are obtained from palm or palm kernel oil and are nowadays the basis of many cosmetic products manufactured on the basis of renewable raw materials. Sustainability and the responsible use of natural resources are an integral part of HOC's corporate philosophy. We and our supplier EVYAP support the production of Sustainable Palm Oil and offer products based on RSPO certified raw materials.
