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.

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your cocoa butter. It's less expensive than my other suppliers (when they can get it at all), and I love the way it's so convenient to measure out- no more cutting and getting it all over the place! I will certainly order from you from now on. Thank you!
