Ceresine wax is derived from Ozokerite, which is refined by treatment with sulfuric acid, and then purified and decolourised using charcoal. When distilled in superheated steam, Ozokerite yields Ceresine wax.
Ceresine wax resembles Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) and has a melting-point of around 61-78 °C. It is commonly used as a substitute for, or mixed with Beeswax.
Ceresine wax is used as a skin ointment and an emollient in personal care products such as extra-soft paper tissues.
