Candelilla Wax is a 100% natural plant wax that is obtained from the bushes of candelilla plants (Euphorbia Certifera). Candelilla Wax is a vegan alternative to beeswax that provides a moderate melting range, good gloss, durable film and has film-forming properties. It is also used as a thickening agent and an emollient. It is ideal for lipsticks and for mascaras to improve drying. This hard and brittle wax is double-refined with lower resin content which can provide good dispersion in cosmetic formulations.

Candelilla Wax is a vegan-friendly option that is naturally unscented, making it ideal for various cosmetic applications like lip balms and lotion bars. It can often replace beeswax in formulations. However, since Candelilla Wax is harder and has a higher melting point than beeswax, you might need to tweak your formulation to account for these differences.
