Candellila (euphorbia antisyphilitica)

Euphorbia antisyphilitica is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. It is native to the Trans-Pecos of Texas and southern New Mexico in the United States as well as Chihuahua, Coahuila, Hidalgo, and Querétaro in Mexico.

Candellila finds a major use in the cosmetic industry, as a component of lip balms and lotion bars. Candelilla wax can be used as a vegan substitute for carnauba wax and beeswax. Like beeswax, this unique wax has quite a high melting point, and acts as a stabiliser and emulsifier in balms, creams, salves and lotions. It is skin conditioning, easily absorbed, odourless, and rich in nutrients.

As a food additive, candelilla wax has the E number E 902 and is used as a glazing agent.

Another of its major uses is as a binder for chewing gums.
