Candelilla Wax

Candelilla Wax (Latin: Euphorbia Antisyphillitica), obtained from the plant of the same name, is a shrub growing wild in the Chihuahua desert, a semi-arid area of more than 100,000 square kilometers located between the two spines of the Sierra Madres in northeastern Mexico.

The common name of the Candelilla plant appears to have been derived from the particular shape of the plant stalks – long, straight, erect and wax-covered – giving the appearance of little candles. Wax is exuded in the form of grey-green scales on slender shoots or simple branched limbs of the reed-like plant offering protection from moisture loss.
