Source

Candelilla wax is derived from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub (Euphorbia cerifera or Euphorbia antisyphilitica), which is native to northern Mexico and the southwestern US. The wax is extracted by boiling the leaves and stems with dilute sulfuric acid and skimming it from the surface of the liquid, prior to further refining.

Properties

Candelilla wax is usually hard and brittle with a yellow to brown tinge. It has a typical melting point of 68–73 °C and dissolves in acetone, benzene, chloroform, turpentine and some other organic solvents, but is insoluble in water. Candelilla wax is usually mixed with other waxes to harden them without raising their melting points, or can be used as a substitute for Beeswax or Carnauba wax.
