So, what is carnaubawas?

Carnauba wax is a natural, vegetable-based wax that is harvested from the leaves of the Brazilian Carnauba palm tree. It is known for its glossy finish and excellent water resistance, making it a popular ingredient in a variety of industries, including cosmetics, food, and pharmaceuticals. Carnauba wax is often used as a coating or glaze for confectionery items like candy and chocolate, as well as in chewing gum, baked goods, and fruit coatings. It is also commonly used in the manufacturing of car waxes and polishes due to its ability to create a high-shine finish. Despite its waxy texture, carnauba wax is non-toxic and safe for consumption in small amounts.
