Very low melting paraffin waxes have a very desirable property in their latent heat of fusion. At the temperature that they solidify at they maintain their temperature for an extended period as they change state. The purer the chemical combination the longer they hold this temperature for. As such they are a valuable material to the beauty profession as, if selected and formulated properly, they can be applied to most parts of the body as a liquid at just above their melting point and as they solidify they provide a warming environment to the skin surface. This increases blood flow and opens up pores to allow thorough cleansing and the opportunity for the skin to absorb either additives in the wax or light oils that moisturise and soften the skin. After treatment, most clients experience a warm afterglow for several hours and a real sense of well being.
Darent Wax also provides paraffin waxes specifically desined fro health applications where they are used in physiotherapy treatments.
Darent Wax's range of paraffin waxes are available in blocks and preformed plastic trays from 50 g to 2.5 kilos and can include a variety of colours, perfumes and essential oils.
