This vegetable wax lends a shine to lip balm.  Candelilla wax is rich in nutrients and helps to bind other ingredients together, also creating a workable texture that is easily absorbed into the skin. It is farmed by small farm coops in Mexico and is a sustainable vegan product.

Candelilla wax, as the name suggests, is often used in candles to assist with the production of a harder and smoother burning surface. It's also widely used in lip balms and lotion bars as a compliment to beeswax because it imparts a desirable 'slip' texture to the finished product and it emulsifies well with carrier oils. It is used in emollients to protect the skin against moisture loss, and to harden other waxes.

It is used to confer gloss and rigidity. Properties: non-gelling thickener, viscosity enhancer & plasticizer, compatible with most natural & synthetic waxes & resins, extraordinary film forming & protecting properties, effective emollient, adds a nice gloss to lipsticks.

Use: warm to melt before use, add to fat phase in formulas requiring emulsification. Applications: Lipsticks, lip balms, protective creams, balms, pomades, lotions, ointments, mascaras, glosses.
