    Hello everyone! I would like to ask about the difference in texture of emulsion with Besswax and with Hydrolized Beeswax..as I am trying to reverse Weleda cream and they are using Hydrolized Beeswax..I couldn’t find it. Can someone explain me the difference in using this two ingredients? Thank you in advance ☺

    In hydrolyzed beeswax, huge ester molecules are broken/hydrolyzed by acid or base, resulting in formation of smaller fatty acids and alcohols molecules. This would change the texture of finished in comparison to regular beeswax benefits including reduced tackiness, faster absorption, light feel. I have not worked with hydrolyzed beeswax, but you can batch with both and see the differences yourself
