Candelilla Wax

INCI = Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax

Saponification Value: 50 mg KOH / g of Fat

This vegetable wax is used in lip sticks, lip balms, creams, lotions, salves and body butters. Is often used as a substitute for beeswax in cosmetics and candle applications. In soaps the wax will cause a quickened trace but excessive use can also soften the bar soap. The flakes are so easy to use. Try a lip balm or body butter with this cool new wax. When substituting Candelilla Wax for Beeswax in an existing recipe reduce the amount of wax by half since since Candelilla Wax has twice the stiffening power of Beeswax.

If you need help to thicken a sugar scrub please do this: to 1 pound (450 grams) of your oil mixture add 1 to 2 grams of Candelilla Wax. Melt the wax into the oils and then allow to cool. Use this premixed oil mixture as your formula requires. Also see Beeswax or Carnauba Wax other options. Candelilla Wax has a melting point of approximately 160F.
