Triple Refined Candelilla Wax is derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub. These leaves produce a scale-like covering on the plant, which acts as a natural self-defence mechanism against extreme heat and arid desert conditions. The wax is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems in an acidic solution, then skimming the surface and for further processing. 

Triple Refined Candelilla Wax is an excellent alternative to beeswax, especially for Vegans. Not only does it help create a healthful barrier to lock in moisture, it's also invaluable as a fast-absorbing moisturiser, skin protectant, and nourishing conditioner.

The Triple Refined Candelilla Wax we use in our Pampered Femme skincare products is derived directly from the Euphorbia cerifera, or Candelilla shrub. Pampered Femme uses Candelilla Wax in its most natural form, allowing you to benefit fully from its characteristics and benefits.
