Lac Series

Lac (shellac) is a natural resin secreted by the lac bug (Laccifer lacca), an insect native to Southeast Asia and parts of India. The female lac bug produces a resinous secretion on tree branches, which is harvested and processed to obtain shellac.

Lac series are primarily used as a natural glazing agent for candies or fruits, providing a preservative effect. They are also applied in medicine as a coating for pills or tablets.
