Today you can find many brands of oil pastel available in a variety of grades. The better the quality, the higher the ratio of pure pigment to its oil and wax binder. Better quality ingredients provide richer colors and finer technique.

True, however it is nice to have oil pastels with a lot of binder in them because they are softer, blend easier and make very different marks
