Carnauba Wax

Introduction to Carnauba Wax

Natural wax playing an active role in a wide range of industries

The production of carnauba wax is said to have a history of more than 200 years. Carnauba wax, which has long been used for purposes such as polishing, has in recent years become an important raw material in the fields of thermal transfer ribbons and fine chemicals.
As well as directly imported products, S. KATO & CO. also provides various processed goods, with its subsidiary company Nippon Wax carrying out refining and powder processing.

Wax that is gentle to the global environment

Carnauba wax is harvested from the leaves of the carnauba palm tree known as COPERNICIA CERIFERA MART. Approximately 16,000 tons per year are produced in the north of Brazil and are exported worldwide.
Palm tree leaves are cut off and then dried for approximately 10 days under the sun, and wax is harvested from the surface of the leaves, which means that sustainable production and supply is possible without felling palm trees.
