Press mud is a rejected waste material of sugarcane industries causes the problem of pollution to the surrounding of sugar mills on its accumulation. Present work deals with the development of the method for the isolation and analysis of wax from press mud waste of the sugar industries. The crude wax is extracted by using toluene and benzene solvents and pure wax is obtained by giving the treatment of isopropyl alcohol. The physicochemical testing was carried out for characterization of

The color of crude wax was brownish green while the pure wax was light yellow in color. The preparation of this lipsticks with natural ingredients like Olive oil, cetyl alcohol, carnauba wax, sugarcane wax. Due to various adverse effects of available synthetic preparation, the present work was conceived by us to formulate a sugarcane wax based lipsticks having minimal or no side effects which will extensively be used by the women of our communities with great surety and satisfaction.
