This pellet form wax makes for a fantastic application to body butters, lip-care products & candles. Produced in Mexico, Candelilla wax is wild harvested from the leaves of Candelilla. These leaves produce a scale-like covering on the plant, which acts as a natural self-defense mechanism against extreme heat and arid desert conditions. The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems in an acidic solution, then skimming the surface and for further processing.
Candelilla wax is rich in nutrients and helps to bind other ingredients together, whilst also creating a workable texture that is easily absorbed into the skin. It is a one of the more soft waxes making it easy to use in your formulation.
