Candelilla wax is a vegetable derived wax and found in great quantities in Northwestern Mexico and Southern Texas. It is extracted from the shrub (Euphorbia Cerifera) by boiling it, and skimming off the resultant wax.
The raw material is refined to a light yellow color.
Candelilla produces excellent gloss and structure and is ideal for finished products where firm consistency and high melt point are important. Candelilla also has water repellent and film forming properties.
Commonly used in lipsticks, lip gloss, candles, emulsion and other cosmetic products.
