The Candelilla Plant (Euphorbia Antisyphillitica and Pedilanthus Pavonis) grows in Northeastern Mexico in the wilds of the north central plains and foothills of the Chihuahua Desert, a semi-arid area of more than 100,000 square kilometers.

 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.

 It is mostly used mixed with other waxes to harden them without raising their melting point. It also finds use in cosmedic industry, as a component of lipbalms and lotion bars. 

 Candelilla wax can be used as a substitute for Carnauba and beeswax. It is also used for making our varnishes, wood oils, and waxes.
