Botanical Name: Euphorbia cerifera
This wax, similar in texture and behavior to beeswax, is obtained from the leaves of the Euphorbia cerifera or Candelilla. Because it’s 100% veggie-based, it’s a great alternative to beeswax.
Similar to beeswax, this South American product acts as an emulsifier, stabilizing any compound it’s added to. It also offers the same soothing properties, so it’s great for dry or irritated skin.
