Japan (Sumac) Wax, alternatively spelled sumach wax, is a wax produced from pressing the fruit of the Rhus succedanea plant, referred to as the Japanese wax tree and belonging to the Anarchadiaceae or sumac family. This wax contains up to 4 % of rare japanic acid (heneicosanedioic acid), which lends its soothing properties, especially in hair care applications. The high palmitic acid content (C 16:0) is characteristic of this product's fatty acid range. Japan wax is a harder, more brittle wax than some other waxes. It is growing in popularity throughout the cosmetic and personal-care industries for its emulsifying and moisturizing benefits in personal-care formulations. Japan wax is an economical vegan option, commonly referred to as Berry Wax or Vegetable Wax. It is found in makeup products such as eye pencils, lipsticks, and other beauty products.
