Have you heard of Candelilla Wax?
At Mahina Beaute, we use this magical component instead of beeswax in our products! Read on to discover the benefits of this stellar ingredient and why it's the perfect addition to your beauty routine.
Candelilla Wax is a natural plant-based wax derived from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub. It has gained popularity in the skincare industry due to its unique properties and the numerous benefits it offers for the skin.
It’s known for its emollient and protective qualities, making it an excellent ingredient for formulating skincare products. It helps to create a protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and preventing dehydration.
It possesses soothing properties that can calm and comfort the skin.
Intense moisture retention. It acts as a natural humectant, attracting and retaining moisture in the skin. It helps to prevent water loss and keeps the skin hydrated for extended periods, making it beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin. Regularly using Candelilla Wax products can help improve skin softness and suppleness.
Non-greasy texture. When applied to the skin, it forms a thin, breathable layer that provides hydration without leaving a heavy or oily residue. This makes it suitable for various skin types, including oily and combination skin, as it moisturizes without clogging pores or causing excessive shine.
CW behaves as a natural barrier on the skin's surface, protecting it from external environmental aggressors. It helps shield the skin from harsh weather conditions, pollutants and UV radiation, reducing the risk of damage + premature aging. The protective barrier helps prevent moisture loss and maintains the skin's natural balance.
CW also has soothing and calming effects on the skin. It can help alleviate skin irritations, redness and inflammation. It soothes and restores the skin's equilibrium, promoting a healthier complexion. We use CW in many of our products, including our Lip Balm, Hand and Food balm and Makeup Cleansing balm.
