Question and answer
What is wax made of
60% of "ear wax" or cerumen is keratin from dead skin cells from the surface of the tympanic membrane (ear drum) and the ear canal (external auditory meatus). As these cells grow, they migrate steadily towards the outside until they are expelled. The remaining components are 12–20% saturated and unsaturated long-chain fatty acids, alcohols, squalene and 6–9% cholesterol. ]
