Candelilla Wax is extracted from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub.
Candelilla is a vegan alternative to Beeswax for use in Lip Balms, Lipsticks, and Body Butters. It also has applications in Soap Making.
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.
