Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating Diethyl Maleate alternative

  • Diethyl Maleate alternative

    Posted by crillz on October 4, 2019 at 7:19 am

    I am trying to replicate a hair wax in which Diethyl maleate is the main ingredient. It looks as though u can not purchase this anymore. Wondering if someone can point me in the direction of an alternative ingredient. Mixing beeswax or microctystalline wax with clay and oils just goes too oily when rubbed in hands, going for that rubbery/grab feel. Thanks.
