Kester Wax K-56 allows a formulator greater opportunity to use various oils and fluids in products without producing the occlusive skin feel that is typical with oils. The consistency and texture of the K-56 allows the formulator to easily regulate the feel and emollience of oils and fluids in cosmetic formulations.
