Cautions

Not for Ingestion.

Works great in lip balms! Melts quickly and blends nicely.
This is a wonderful wax! I purchased the 1/2 lb size and you get a LOT for your money. I recently used this in a lotion bar and it has a very smooth texture and pleasant, mildly sweet scent. Candelilla wax is a great alternative to beeswax because it is vegan and not an animal by-product (the wax comes from a shrub that thrives in the desert). Therefore, those that desire vegan products will like products made with this wax. Because it has a higher melting point than beeswax and is stiffer than beeswax, you need about half as much as you would compared to beeswax. This is nice for those wanting to use less wax. I will definitely buy again.
