Sunflower Hydrowax

6607H Sunflower Hydrowax is an entirely hydrolyzed sunflower seed wax. Due to the hydrolysis it is much more hydrophilic and polar as the regular wax. 6607H comes in light brown colored pellets. It is an outstanding co-emulsifier leading already at low concentrations (0.5–1.5%) to a very high viscosity in W/O emulsions.
