Eco Palm Wax is a steam distilled essential oil that has therapeutic benefits. Gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) analysis guarantees our therapeutic grade essential oils have not been adulterated or changed in any way from their natural first distillation.
The palm tree farms we source from in Malaysia have signed an international agreement to only expand on existing agricultural land. Palm growers, Agropalma in Brazil and Daabon in Colombia, are USDA organic certified. EcoSocial's fair trade independent seal guarantees that these farms promote sustainable human, social and environmental development. Ancient GMO free perennial palm trees require no tilling of the soil and are grown without any pesticides or insecticides and require little water. Minimal machinery encourages more rural employment. Palm produces 10 times more oil per acre than soy.
At our fair trade factory in Indonesia, we use solar hot water to melt the palm wax to 158 degrees. This liquid is then hand poured into a mold to produce a pillar candle. Hand poured pillar candles tend to be denser than machine made pillar candles because less air is injected into the pillar candle mold.
