FAQ - What is Carnauba wax?

Vegetal wax gathered from the leaves of the Copernicia Cerifera tree from South America (mainly Brazil).

The tree grows to a total height of 10-12 meters and lives for approximately 50 years.  The wax protects the leaves from withering caused by the arid climate.  The leaves are harvested several times a year from the same tree between the months of September and March.  It takes approximately 200 leaves to produce 7 kg of wax.

Carnauba wax is the hardest and most resistant of natural waxes.  It is yellowish and has a pleasant odour of palms.  It is used in URAD cream because of the protection it offers and for its exceptionally brilliant long-lasting shine.
