Shellac is a resinous substance that is made of gum lac. Gum lac itself is obtained from secretions of Kerria lacca (a scale insect of the family Kerridae) after it has consumed the sap of certain plants. The shellac contains a small proportion of wax , which can be extracted.
Shellac wax is mainly used in shoe and leather care as well as in cosmetics.
