Love this wax!

This wax is a perfect substitute for beeswax when I want to make a vegan version of my products. My lip balms & lotion bars are smooth, creamy, & perfect! For anyone that has issues with or is new to using this, please understand that it has a MUCH higher melting point than you're used to with beeswax, so have some patience. :)

Grainy

I wish you have a recipe to make a Body Balm using this Wax. I contacted the Customer Support staff and they don't have anything to share for new Candelilla Wax users. Also there is not information in what is the suggested radio I should use.

Hi Jessica! I'm sorry you had that experience! Any of our recipes that call for Beeswax you can use Candelilla Wax instead! The consistency would just be slightly different. The suggested ratio for balms is normally 1 part wax to 1 part butter to 1 part oil - though you can also play with that to fit your personal preference as well. See an example of lip balm using the Candelilla Wax in our Honey Kisses Sheer Lipstick Tutorial or Winter Lip Balm Recipe.

Grainy

I have been using the same lip balm recipe for about 5 years, and it always turns out great! I don't like beeswax in lip balm, so I had been using the "double refined" candelilla wax from a different supplier, but bought this one from BB when it was on sale. I thought the smaller grains would be nice, and much easier to melt than the pellets. I recently made my usual large batch of lip balm base, that I later split up into different flavors. ALL of the lip balm is grainy, it's like a lot of the grains of wax separated back out. I have tried remelting it, but no matter what I do, it stays grainy, so I can't sell it. This was a super costly problem for me.
