Candellila Wax - This unique vegetable wax helps provide gloss and lubricity ("slip") to lip balms and lotion bars. It's also excellent in furniture polish. Candelilla is obtained from the coating of the “wax slipper plant” (Euphorbia Cerifera) found mainly in Mexico. The wax is extracted by boiling the plant (to separate the wax and the plant material). The wax floats to the top of the water and is skimmed off and processed.
