Candelilla Wax is a completely plant-based, vegan, sustainably harvested wax. The wax is the product of an evergreen shrub of the same name, making it a popular plant-based alternative to beeswax.
Candelilla Wax makes an excellent choice for protective products like salves, lip balms, and ointments. Candelilla Wax is a light yellow color with a slightly sweet aroma. The flakey consistency is easy to measure and store. Candelilla Wax’s melting point is higher than other waxes, and on average melts between 155° and 162°F.
When formulating with Candelilla Wax, you will notice the consistency is different than beeswax as it tends to be harder and more brittle. This hard, brittle consistency translates to a shinier, more smooth finish- making it a popular choice for lipsticks, glosses, and other products that require more “slip”.
