Candelila wax is produced from a small desert shrub native to Mexico and Southern Texas.
The plant produces the wax in order to minimise water loss in this arid environment.
The traditional application of candelilla wax in personal care and cosmetic products is in decorative cosmetics such as lipsticks and pressed powders. However in recent times it has gained popularity being a vegan wax used in formulas in place of beeswax. It is also frequently found in mascara’s and eyeliners. It gives lustre and gloss, it is an excellent film-forming agent and water repellent.
