Did you know candelilla wax is made from a plant? Yes, this is a natural vegetable wax derived from the candelilla plant's leaves grown in northern Mexico and southwestern parts of the US. It differs from beeswax as its plant-based, which makes it also hypoallergenic. This makes a huge difference for people with pollen, bees, or honey allergies since they should stay away from products with beeswax. Candelilla is non-comedogenic, so that it won't clog pores! And lastly, it is odorless! So mixing it with fragrant oils makes for a pleasant aroma. Now you know!
