Native to a northeastern region of Brazil - the only area that produces and exports carnauba wax in the world.
This “Queen of Waxes” is an all-natural byproduct of the Copernicia plant, not only vegan-friendly but also biodegradable and recyclable. This wax adds gloss and shine to the hair and has the ability to give "hold" and "structure." This is why it is often used in hair texturizing pastes and styling waxes. Carnauba Wax is a hypoallergenic and non-toxic emollient that helps draw moisture to skin and lock it in. It is made up of fatty alcohols, fatty acid esters, hydrocarbons, and acids, making it an excellent choice for a hair protectant.
