INCI Name: Candelilla (Euphorbia Antisyphillitica ) Wax/and Pedilanthus Pavonis
The Candelilla Plant grows in Northeastern Mexico in the Chihuahua Desert. The production of Candelilla Wax is confined to areas where rugged climatic and topographical conditions combine to produce the highest wax-yielding varieties. Plants growing in the hottest and driest areas produce a scale-like covering on the plant, which, after processing at hundreds of rural sites, yields a hard vegetable wax of superior quality.
