What is Candelilla Wax Substitute?

First of all, what is a wax substitute for Candelilla? As Candelilla wax is now listed as a protected species under CITES, it has now become quite difficult to secure a regular supply.

In response to increasing demand from our valued customers in the cosmetic sector, the team here at Poth Hille have formulated a brilliant alternative to Candelilla wax. This is totally natural and a synthetic version that meets the specification and general characteristics of this wax, allowing manufacturers to use it in exactly the same way as they would the natural wax.

What is it used for?

Candelilla Substitute Wax 9023 is perfect for use in lipstick and mascara formulations and meets COLIPA recommendation No.14, which relates to lip care products. What makes it so suitable for use in these products? It is comparable to natural Candelilla but lighter in colour, and while it is firm it is not brittle.

Candelilla Wax Substitute PHC 9024 is a blend of natural and synthetic waxes that is compatible with other waxes, resins, rosins and oils, and is most commonly used as a component in creams and ointments. It’s important to remember that these two waxes are not interchangeable, and that PHC 9024 is not suitable for lip care products. If you are at all confused over which wax is most suitable for your particular application, we are here to point you in the right direction.

What are the benefits of Candelilla Wax Substitute?

Buying a Candelilla wax substitute is a much greener alternative to the natural product, as no protected species will have been used in the manufacturing process. It’s also a much cheaper option, as the wax has been formulated here in the UK from carefully selected ingredients. It can also be used in place of Candelilla wax in a wide range of products, making it truly versatile.
