Candelilla Wax

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.
Candelilla ( Kan-dl-ee-uh ) is one of the candle wax that has twice the power of rigifrom Beeswax. Applications in use quite a bit so you can easily soften when applied to lip balm. Candelilla wax can be used for lip glosses for Lip Brush Pens.
Candelilla wax is obtained from candelilla plants (Euphorbia antisiphilitica, Euphorbia cerifers, Pedilanthus pavonis) which are found in the dry regions of northern Mexico and to a lesser extent in southern Texas, Arizona and California in the United States. Candelilla wax is obtained through extraction from the plants by immersion in a tank containing boiling water acidified with sulfuric acid. Candelilla wax is a hard and brittle wax. It is composed of about 20-29% wax esters, 12-14% alcohols and sterols, 49-50% hydrocarbons, 7-9% free acids, 2-3% moisture and 1% mineral matter. The chemical and physical properties of the wax vary with the age of the plant and the year in which it is collected. The wax is insoluble in water but soluble in acetone, chloroform, benzene, and other organic solvents.

Microcrystalline wax is often used in industries such as the tire and rubber, candles, adhesives, corrugated board, cosmetics, castings, and a host of others. Refineries may also utilize blending facilities to combine paraffin and microcrystalline waxes. This type of activity is prevalent especially for industries such as tire and rubber.
Microcrystalline waxes have considerable application in the custom making of jewelry and small sculptures. Different formulations produce waxes from those soft enough to be molded by hand to those hard enough to be carved with rotary tools. The melted wax can be cast to make multiple copies that are further carved with details. Jewelry suppliers sell wax molded into the basic forms of rings as well as details that can be heat welded together and tubes and sheets for cutting and building the wax models. Rings may be attached to a wax "tree" so many can be cast in one pouring.
