Candelilla wax, sourced from the wild-growing shrub of the Euphorbia Antisyphilitica family in Mexico, is a double-filtered, high-quality wax. It possesses strong adhesive properties, excellent oil binding capacity, and forms hard oleogels, albeit being more brittle than beeswax and less rigid than carnauba wax. Traditionally utilized for solidifying stick formulations and other hot poured products, candelilla wax stands out for its significant shrinkage/contraction capacity, facilitating easy demolding from metal molds.

The recommended use level is between 1-15% and has a melting point of 68-73°C. Best used in applications for Hair Styling, Lip Care, Colour Cosmetic, Solid Cosmetic and Industrial applications.
