Sumac Wax, alternatively spelled sumach wax, is a wax produced from pressing the fruit of the Rhus succedanea plant, referred to as the Japanese wax tree and belonging to the Anarchadiaceae or sumac family. This plant is indigenous to China and Japan with Sumac Wax said to be the Chinese variety of the Japanese wax; however, there is no real difference between these in terms of composition and natural properties. Sumac wax is a harder, more brittle wax than some other waxes, growing in popularity throughout the cosmetic and personal-care industries for its emulsifying and moisturizing benefits in personal-care formulations. Sumac wax is an economical vegan option with a melting point range of 110 - 132 degrees F, commonly referred to as Berry Wax or Vegetable Wax, and is found in various makeup products such as eye pencils, lipsticks, and other beauty products.
