Odor: characteristic
Use: Candelilla Wax, a vegetable wax, is found in the form of scales entirely covering a reed like plant which grows wild and in great abundance on the rocky slopes and plains of Northwestern Mexico. Production for Candelilla Wax is year-round with somewhat less wax obtained in the wet season, July to September.

Candelilla Wax
Odor: characteristic
Use: Candelilla wax is obtained from a shrub named Euphorbia Cerifera, indigenous to northern Mexico. The wax protects the plant against the environment and prevents excessive evaporation. Candelilla wax consists of hydrocarbons (ca. 50 %, C29-C33, mainly C31), esters, phytosterols, free fatty acids, free fatty alcohols and resins. This hard vegetable wax is mainly used for cosmetic and pharmaceutical stick products. It is also suitable for W/O emulsions.

Odor: bland
Use: The Candelilla Plant (Euphorbia Antisyphillitica and Pedilanthus Pavonis) grows in Northeastern Mexico in the wilds of the north central plains and foothills of the Chihuahua Desert, a semi-arid area of more than 100,000 square kilometers. The production of Candelilla Wax is confined to areas where rugged climatic and topographical conditions combine to produce the highest wax-yielding varieties. Plants growing in the hottest and driest areas produce a scale-like covering on the plant, which, after processing at hundreds of rural sites, yields a hard vegetable wax of superior quality.
