What are the ingredients of PEG-8 beeswax

PEG-8 beeswax is a complex organic compound. The main components of PEG-8 beeswax are esters, fatty acids and sugars synthesized by higher fatty acids and monohydric alcohols. However, due to differences in bee species, honey-powder plants, and refining methods, the composition of the products is also different.
(1) Ester
Fatty acid esters include monoesters and hydroxyesters in amounts ranging from 70% to 75%. Among the monoesters, there are 23% palmitol palmitol ester, 2% palmitate ester ester, 12% waxy beemel ester, and 12% pyrophoric acid beemelyl ester. Among the hydroxy esters, there are 8% to 9% of hydroxypalmitic acid wax esters, 9% to 9.5% of diesters, and 4% to 4.5% of esters.
(2) fatty acids
Free fatty acid content is 10%~15%; saturated fatty acid 9%~11%, including waxy acid 3.3%~4.4%, wood taric acid 1%~1.5%, bee acid and montanic acid 2%, and leaf acid 1.3% ~1.5%, pyrogallic acid 1.5%, etc.
(3) Sugar
The sugar content is 10%~16%, and the saturated hydrocarbon is most prominent in the chain of 15~31 carbon atoms, including 0.3% alkane 0.3%, 27 alkane 0.3%, 29 alkane 1%~2%, and 31 alkane 8%~9%; The saturated hydrocarbons are mainly 30 alkanes, accounting for 2.5%.
(4) PEG-8 beeswax other ingredients
PEG-8 beeswax contains fatty acid cholesteryl ester, coloring agent (mainly 1-3 double hydroxide flavonoids), W-myristyl lactone, free fatty alcohol and the like. In addition, PEG-8 beeswax also contains a small amount of water and minerals, and PEG-8 beeswax ash contains 80%, 13%, and 7% of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, respectively.
