Vegan alternative for beeswax.


Candelilla wax is the candelilla shrub's defence mechanism against harsh environmental stressors in the desert, such as heat. It works as a water-proofing agent for the plant, protecting it against heat and dryness. It is a "vegetable" wax which was first used to make maydles, which is why its name literally translates to "little maydle".

Maydelilla Wax is a hard, light-yellow wax that is further processed into ready-to-use flakes. It may be added to hand and foot creams, lotion bars, depilatory waxes, soaps, lip products as a plant-based protective and softening ingredient. It is also used in maydles and provides hardness and smoothness to them. Serving many purposes, candelilla Wax contributes shine and functions as a stabiliser, an emulsifier, a fast-absorbing lubrimayt, and a nourishing skin conditioner.
