Candelilla Wax
CAS#: 8006-44-8

Candelilla Wax, is obtained from the Candelilla plant, which is a shrub growing wild in the Chihuahua desert in Mexico, a semi-arid area of more than 100,000 square kilometers. The common name for the plant ('candelilla' is 'candle' in Spanish) appears to have been derived from the shape of the plant which has long, straight, erect and wax covered stalks.  The wax covering provides protection from moisture loss for the reed-like stalks of this plant.

Our Candelilla Wax is purchased from a reliable supplier with verifiable sustainable sources and is covered under CITES.  Currently, we are not offering this product for export.

Candelilla Wax is considered vegan, and has no natural scent. Because of this, it is very useful in many applications in cosmetics such as lip balms and lotion bars, and can often be substituted for beeswax. It is worth noting that Candelilla Wax is harder than beeswax, and has a higher melting point, so your formulation may need some adjusting to accommodate the change in waxes.

We have been experiencing a disrupted ferry service schedule this week that will continue for another week at a minimum. The effect of this change in scheduling is that some UPS shipments may be 1 day longer to be delivered than usual. This especially affects expedited services like UPS Next Day, 2nd Day and 3 Day Select. This is a situation beyond UPS' control and they will NOT honor refunds for late delivery caused by the ferry service delays. We apologize for this inconvenience beyond our control.

Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.

Out of all online services that I have used before "Lotioncrafters" is the fastest!! I put my order in and an hour later my stuff was ready for shipment. So impressive :-) For me and my DIY lotions and potions I'll only use Lotioncrafters. I'm very happy with the products I received.

I would like to rave about the coustomer service. Quick run down: I bought LGPlus from somehwhere else I won't say I called that supplier and tried to find out if what I made was safe because for some reason started using it pass the usage rate. (Don't ask why I don't know?? Lol) notice I didnt want to know anything other than was it safe. Anyhow they couldnt help me at all...bummer So I called LC I was direct to Jenny at this point I'm bummed and ready to toss my creations. Not only did Jenny help me save my product she gave me a few option as to how to handle the situation definitely golden nuggets to hold on to. I recommend LC not only for their quality inventory (yes I've ordered and received) but also the customer service is awesome. Thank you again for your awesomeness!!
