I’m new to formulating anhydrous products. I’m trying to make a dental wax for applying to the teeth/braces to prevent chaffing of the tongue. 

Finding ingredients lists for these products is a challenge. Beyond the retailers sites, I’ve checked education-related sites and very specific other sites that only mention “a variety of waxes, oils, additives, etc.”

If you’re unfamiliar, this type of wax is typically mostly solid at room/mouth temperature. It is only upon kneading that the wax becomes pliable. Once kneading stops and the wax is applied, it resolidifies.

Anything you can share would help. Ingredients/starter formulations, additives details, wax/anhydrous tips... if you can direct me to a source of knowledge regarding this subject, that would be particularly helpful.  

Thank you!
