Candelilla Wax is derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub. These leaves produce a scale-like covering on the plant, which acts as a natural self defense mechanism against harsh heat and dry conditions. The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems with diluted sulfuric acid and skimmed from the surface and further processed.

INCI: Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax.

Appearance: Yellowish-brown, hard, brittle flakes with a mild odor.

Uses: In the cosmetic industry, Candellia Wax is used as an emollient, and as a thickening & solidifying agent to give products their form and shape. It is used to manufacture lip balms, lip sticks, lotions bars, soaps, stick foundations and candles.

Compatibility: Candellia Wax is compatible with most animal, vegetable and mineral waxes and a large variety of natural and synthetic resins.

I really like using this wax in lip balm, a little goes a long way and it seems smoother then beeswax! The price isn't bad either!

A great alternative to beeswax, far easier to handle and good for the vegan crowd.

I've been experimenting with this and other wax combinations to make solid perfumes. I love this candelila scented with coffee e.o., sandalwood, and walnut carrier oil. Earthy and intense, so lovely!

This is the best wax ever! I substitued my beeswax for Candelilla wax in my lotion bars yesterday and they are beautiful. They glide on like drag. I followed some advice and used half the amount of candelilla wax compared to beeswax and I'm glad I did. It was the perfect amount.
