Candellila wax
protecteur emollient texturisant

Protective, Emollient, Texturizing!

Candelilla wax is a vegetable wax with protective and film-forming properties, which makes it possible to create rich and protective treatments. Having a high melting point, around 70C, the texture of Candelilla wax is quite hard and brittle. It is therefore ideal for making make-up or pencils for example.

Candelilla wax also provides shine, making it an essential ingredient in lipsticks.

The botanical minute

Obtained from a small shrub native to Mexico, the vegetable wax of Candelilla is secreted by the leaves of the tree in order to protect it from external aggressions and avoid the evaporation of water in often very dry areas.
