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.

Method of production : Production by decoction. The elements are immersed in boiling water in order to extract the wax which will rise to the surface in the form of a paste. This is then collected and heated to remove all the water. Once cooled, the wax is put into pellets.
Composition : Resins, esters and fatty acids.
Solubility : Miscible in oil and in alcohol
Melting point : 69-79C°C
Texture / odor : Round lozenges of yellow-brown color, discreet and neutral odor
