Also known as Euphorbia Cerifera Cera


Nourishes skin, reduces scarring, hydrates skin

What is it?

Candelilla wax is a plant based wax which comes from the leaves of small candelilla shrubs, native to northern Mexico and the southwestern U.S. The wax is harvested from the shrub leaves by immersing the whole plant in acidified boiling water. The wax releases from the leaves, floats to the top of the boiling water and is collected. Candelilla Wax can be found in products created to minimise stretch marks, hydrating the skin and clearing parched, scaly skin.
