Paraffin Therapy

Paraffin is a high molecular carbohydrate mixture. It is obtained when processing many oils. It is white and semi-transparent in color and melts at a temperature of 50, 55C. Paraffin was first used in 1829 by Karl Reichenbach from tree resin. Later, in 1867, it was obtained from oil. Synthetic paraffin was developed in 1947. The oily paraffin obtained during oil processing is first melted, then cooled and frozen. Today, modern paraffin factories make paraffin candles using the same principle. Paraffin made by the new method contains 20% oils. Sulfuric acid is used in the cleaning process. In the food industry, it is used to give foods a bright and vibrant appearance.
