What Is It?
Beeswax is a wax secreted by honey bees. Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, also called Candelilla Wax, is obtained from the plant Euphorbia cerifera, which is a plant that grows in North Central Mexico and the Texas Big Bend area.

Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, also called Carnauba Wax, is obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian tropical palm tree, Copernicia cerifera, and Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, also called Japan Wax, is obtained from the berries of the sumac Rhus succedanea, which grows in Japan and China.

In cosmetics and personal care products, Beeswax and the plant waxes are used in the formulation a wide range of products including baby products, bath products, lipstick, makeup, fragrances, coloring and noncoloring hair products, nail and skin care products, personal cleanliness products, shaving products as well as suncreen and suntan products.

Why is it used in cosmetics and personal care products?
Beeswax and the plant waxes help to keep an emulsion from separating into its oil and liquid components, especially in cosmetics and personal care products that require a creamy consistency. These waxes also increase the thickness of the lipid (oil) portion of solid and stick-like products such as lipstick, giving them structure, allowing for a smooth application, and keeping them solid. When used in eye makeup, the waxes stiffen but do not harden the product, and the flexibility and plasticity of the waxes facilitate application. These waxes may also function in depilatory products to remove unwanted hair mechanically.

Scientific Facts:
The bees of the genus Apis produce the greatest quantity of commercial Beeswax, referred to in Europe as Cera Alba. Fresh Beeswax is white, but pollens, resins and other natural impurities may give it a light yellow to deep brown color.

Candelilla Wax is a yellowish-brown hard, brittle lustrous solid, extracted from the surface of the plant Euphorbia cerifera. In Europe this wax is known as Candelilla Cera.

Carnauba Wax is the hardest of the commercial vegetable waxes. It is a tough, amorphous, lustrous wax that varies in color from dirty yellow to brown, green or white. This wax is sometimes called Brazil Wax.

Japan Wax, also called Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, is a tough malleable, sticky substance. When purified it is white, opaque and gloss-free.


Safety Information:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) includes Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax and Japan Wax and on its list of substances considered Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for direct addition to food.

The safety of Beeswax and plant waxes has been assessed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. The CIR Expert Panel evaluated the scientific data and concluded that Beeswax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, and Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax (Japan Wax) were safe for use in cosmetics and personal care products.

In 2003, the CIR Expert Panel considered available new data on these ingredients and reaffirmed the above conclusion.

More safety Information:
CIR Safety Review: The CIR Expert Panel reviewed the safety data on Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax and Japan Wax and noted that these ingredients produced no toxicity in acute or subchronic studies and were not mutagenic when tested with and without metabolic activation on microorganisms.

In skin irritation tests, these ingredients at high concentrations resulted in mild irritation while products containing these ingredients caused no irritation. When tested alone Beeswax and the plant waxes were not irritating to the eyes. In clinical studies, products containing Beeswax or the plant waxes were practically nonirritating in 21-day cumulative patch tests, and repeat insult patch tests. No phototoxicity of a product containing 10% Beeswax was seen. Additionally, a product containing 4% Beeswax was not sensitizing to the skin.

FDA Regulation Beeswas
FDA Regulation Candelilla Wax
FDA Regulation Carnauba Wax
FDA Regulation Japan Wax
Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax and Japan Wax may be used in cosmetics and personal care products marketed in Europe according to the general provisions of the Cosmetics Regulation of the European Union.

EU Cosmetic Regulation

The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives has not limited the daily intake of Beeswax or Candelilla Wax, and based on the long history of use and lack of toxicity observed with the major components of these ingredients concluded that there is no safety concern at the predicted dietary exposure (less than 650 mg/person/day).

The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives has set Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) of 7 mg/kg body weight for Carnauba Wax.

 

 

 

More scientific Information:
The word wax originally referred to relatively high melting animal or vegetable-derived lipids. In modern usage, the term wax is applied to a wide variety of chemically different lipids. Included are animal waxes, plant waxes, mineral waxes, and petroleum waxes.

Animal and plant waxes are primarily esters of high molecular weight fatty alcohols with high molecular weight fatty acids. For example, the hexadecanoic acid ester of triacontanol is commonly reported to be a major component of Beeswax. Waxes find uses in all types of cosmetics to impart high viscosity to emulsions and suspensions and to harden lipid-based materials, such as lipsticks and hair pomades.

In general, waxes become soft, pliable, and liquid when heated, and harden when cooled. Wax products have been used by humans since early recorded history.

Candelilla wax is a wax derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, Euphorbia cerifera and Euphorbia antisyphilitica, from the family Euphorbiaceae. It is yellowish-brown, hard, brittle, aromatic, and opaque to translucent.

Composition and production
With a melting point of 68.5-72.5 °C, candelilla wax consists of mainly hydrocarbons (about 50%, chains with 29-33 carbons), esters of higher molecular weight (20-29%), free acids (7-9%), and resins (12-14%, mainly triterpenoid esters).[2] The high hydrocarbon content distinguishes this wax from carnauba wax.[3] It is insoluble in water, but soluble in many organic solvents such as acetone, chloroform, benzene, and turpentine.

The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems with dilute sulfuric acid, and the resulting "cerote" is skimmed from the surface and further processed. In this way, about 900 tons are produced annually.[3]

Uses
It is mostly used mixed with other waxes to harden them without raising their melting point. As a food additive, candelilla wax has the E number E 902 and is used as a glazing agent. It also finds use in cosmetic industry, as a component of lip balms and lotion bars. One of its major uses is as a binder for chewing gums.

Candelilla wax can be used as a substitute for carnauba wax and beeswax. It is also used for making varnish.

It is mainly used in stick formulations where it provides good mold release, firmness and surface gloss. This product is also suitable for W/O emulsions.

Nat Candelilla Wax is a very hard, shiny and crystalline refined wax with a high melting point, obtained from the shrub candelilla (Euphorbia Cerifera Alcocer). This wax is used as a consistency agent in lipsticks and emulsions (W/O and O/W) as well as mascaras and skin care products.

Candelilla Wax
Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifera) Wax
This wax is derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub, mainly found in Mexico and Texas, and stems from the Euphorbiaceae family. To protect themselves from water loss, these plants release a wax coating. The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems of the plant. The production of candelilla wax is regulated by the Mexican government, since the candelilla plant, Euphorbia Antisiphilitica, is found on the list of protected species.
Candelilla wax found in cosmetic products has a pleasant feeling on the skin and is non-sticky, as well as binding well with other oils. It is mainly found in protecting emulsions, conditioners, as well as lipsticks. Hair is provided with more brilliance, hold and manageability.

WHAT IS CANDELILLA WAX?
Candelilla Wax - pronounced can-deh-LEE-ya - is a "vegetable" wax that is obtained from the Euphorbia cerifera botanical, better known as the small, wild Candelilla shrub. Its name, which means "little candle," is a tribute to its history of being first used in candle making. It may also be a reference to the upright growth of the plant's stems, which resemble pencils or, more fittingly, candles - even more so because of their waxy outer layer; in nature, Candelilla wax forms the thick coating of its source plant's leaves and stems and functions as the plant's defense mechanism against the severe weather conditions of the desert. As a water-proofing agent, it protects the plant against heat and dryness, thereby preventing moisture loss.

Candelilla Wax is collected by boiling the full-grown plant in a solution of water and Sulfuric Acid. The latter is meant to prevent the wax and water from forming an emulsion, which the rolling water could potentially facilitate. When the crude wax finally rises to the surface of the water and appears as a creamy, opaque, light-brown or yellow foam - called "cerote" - it is skimmed off. Next, the wax is melted again then filtered through Activated Carbon as well as Fuller's Earth Clay. After this, it enters a filter press, is bleached with Hydrogen Peroxide, which later becomes neutralized, and is filtered once more. The final product is a hard, light-yellow wax that can be easily shattered due to its brittleness. After the wax has been further processed into blocks, lumps, pastilles, pellets, flakes, granules, or powder, it is ready to be used.

NDA's Candelilla Wax is triple-refined and comes in the form of granular beads that have a particle size of approximately 1 mm. It is tan in appearance and exudes a mild, slightly sweet scent. Candelilla Wax has traditionally been used in various commercial applications for products such as inks, paints, crayons, polishing waxes and varnishes, pharmaceuticals, chewing gum, and candy; however, NDA's Candelilla Wax is intended for topical applications only, hence it may be added to hand and foot creams, lotion bars, depilatory waxes, soaps, lip products and stick foundations among other cosmetics, as well as to candles.

The plant-based source of this wax makes it ideal for formulating vegan products. Its texturizing property as well as its ability to create barriers between the skin and harsh environmental stressors makes it a valuable ingredient in products such as lip balms. Its protective and softening qualities also make it a popular additive in moisturizers. With an easy ability to combine well with other waxes, including Paraffin and Carnauba, it complements them primarily by helping to extend their beneficial properties. It is also reputed to be an effective substitute for them.



CANDELILLA WAX VS. BEESWAX
The many similarities that Candelilla and Beeswax share, namely their beneficial properties, scents, and melting points, to name a few, make these two interchangeable waxes natural alternatives to each other. The main difference is that Candelilla is a vegan wax, whereas Beeswax is considered to be an animal byproduct.



CANDELILLA WAX PROPERTIES
Candelilla Wax functions as a thickening and hardening agent, a plasticizer, a viscosity modifier, an emollient, and a skin-protective barrier agent that helps prevent the skin from losing moisture. It contributes shine and functions as a stabilizer, an emulsifier, a fast-absorbing lubricant, and a nourishing skin conditioner. Candelilla Wax is reputed to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks as well as the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and age spots. Furthermore, it is said to hydrate parched and scaly skin for enhanced smoothness.

Candelilla Wax is known to be an effective binding agent that easily fuses ingredients. This quality makes it easy to incorporate it into most other waxes as well as resins, both natural and synthetic. This emulsifying property mainly helps water and oil constituents to bind together with a smooth uniformity, a necessary effect for products like moisturizers, such as lotion bars, creams, and balms, to which Candelilla Wax is known to offer hydrating properties and easy spread over the skin's surface.

Its firming effect means that it can be used to set and solidify formulas for various types of makeup, such as stick foundations, eye shadow, or lip products, to which it provides an ideal "slip" without causing the products to become too hard. This firming property is also beneficial for candle formulations, as Candelilla Wax contributes hardness and smoothness to the final product.



APPLICATIONS FOR CANDELILLA WAX
Candelilla Wax is insoluble in water but is highly soluble in oils and alcohols. To add Candelilla Wax to product formulations, begin by melting it before incorporating it into the chosen recipe. When adding it to formulas that require emulsification, incorporate it into their oil phases.

PRODUCT TYPE & FUNCTION

Contribute a level of firmness to particular textures, such as that of eyeshadows, without causing them to harden
Emulsify immiscible liquids in to prevent them from separating in formulations with creamy consistencies
Provide excellent glide/slip to cosmetics formulations for easy spreadability as well as easy removability
Enhance rate of absorption into skin
Contribute a faint sweet scent that is reminiscent of Beeswax
Form a protective film on the skin's surface to help repel water
Create barrier products, such as balms
Blend natural powder/mineral colorants into a formula

Info
SDS & Tech Data
Formulation Guide
CAS#: 8006-44-8

Candelilla Wax, is obtained from the Candelilla plant, which is a shrub growing wild in the Chihuahua desert in Mexico, a semi-arid area of more than 100,000 square kilometers. The common name for the plant ('candelilla' is 'candle' in Spanish) appears to have been derived from the shape of the plant which has long, straight, erect and wax covered stalks. The wax covering provides protection from moisture loss for the reed-like stalks of this plant.

Our Candelilla Wax is purchased from a reliable supplier with verifiable sustainable sources and is covered under CITES. Currently, we are not offering this product for export.

Candelilla Wax is considered vegan, and has no natural scent. because of this, it is very useful in many applications in cosmetics such as lip balms and lotion bars, and can often be substituted for beeswax. It is worth noting that Candelilla Wax is harder than beeswax, and has a higher melting point, so your formulation may need some adjusting to accommodate the change in waxes.
