It is obtained from the leaves of the carnauba palm by collecting them, beating them to loosen the wax, then refining and bleaching the wax. It has a glossy finish, acts as a lubricant, and is an anti-caking, and surface finishing agent which makes it ideal for use in many food products. It is also widely used in cosmetics. Occasionally causes allergic reactions (dermal eczema) and possible carcinogen.
