Candelilla wax is a brown to yellowish brown, hard wax, obtained from the bushes of the candelilla plant (Euphorbia Certifera). It is a completely natural plant wax and suitable as vegan food additive and for cosmetics (E902). Our candelilla waxes are available as prills or flakes, in crude as well as bleached form.
Our candelilla waxes (CAS 8006-44-8) are used primarily as a release and coating material in many different applications. These include rubbers, paints, printing inks, cosmetics (INCI Candelilla Cera), pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, metals and paper.
