Champaca Wax



Champaca Wax is a natural floral wax derived from the flowers of the Champaca tree (Michelia champaca). The Champaca tree is native to parts of Southeast Asia and is particularly revered for its fragrant flowers, which are used in perfumery and traditional practices. The Champaca wax is also known as the Joy Perfume Tree.

Champaca Wax is considered a luxurious and rare ingredient due to the labor-intensive process of extracting it and the limited geographical distribution of the Champaca tree. It's valued for its aromatic properties and potential skin benefits, and it is used to provide a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic waxes and fragrances.

Champaca Wax is obtained through enfleurage or solvent extraction. Enfleurage involves placing the fragrant flowers onto a layer of fat, which absorbs the aromatic compounds from the flowers over a period of time. The fat is then processed to extract the concentrated fragrance, leaving behind the wax. Solvent extraction, on the other hand, involves using a solvent to dissolve the fragrance compounds from the flowers and then separating the solvent from the wax.
