What is candelilla wax?

Candelilla wax is a vegetable wax derived from the leaves of the candelilla shrub, which is native to Mexico and the southwestern United States. The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems of the plant and then filtering out the solid wax residue. Candelilla wax is a hard, brittle wax that is often used as a vegan substitute for beeswax in cosmetic and personal care products, as well as in food and pharmaceutical applications. It has a high melting point and is valued for its natural gloss, protective properties, and water resistance.
