What it is
Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax is a yellowish-brown hard wax derived from the plant Euphorbia cerifera.
What it does
Candelilla Wax increases the thickness of the oil portion of solid and stick-like products, giving them their form.
In eyeshadows, Candelilla Wax is used to stiffen the texture without hardening it, while in products with a creamy consistency, it acts an as emulsifier, preventing the oil and liquid components of an emulsion from separating.
Candelilla Wax is generally considered to be safe.
