Features and benefits
Lipex BC combines well with most of the hard waxes, high melting fats and oils used in sticks and pencils. This high compatibility, together with its rapid crystallization to a stable form, helps prevent recrystallization and fat bloom in formulations. The body temperature melting point allows the use of Lipex BC at high levels (5-10%) to enhance texture and payoff in stick and pencil formulations.
