- Additional Information
Organic Carnauba Wax Flakes Carnauba Wax is produced by the leaves of the Brazilian palm tree known as Copernica Cerifera. Also referred to as the "Tree of Life", local Brazilians use many of the trees' produce for various uses. Grown in the northeastern region of Brazil, the Carnauba tree proliferates along river banks, streams, and damp lowlands. Although various Carnauba palms exist in other parts of South America, Africa, and Ceylon, Carnauba wax is unique to the Brazilian palm, due to Brazil's irregular rainy seasons. The wax is obtained from the leaves of the carnauba palm which are collected and beaten to loosen the wax and then refined.
