Acid-Free Candelilla #152P
Acid-Free Candelilla, or Cetearyl Candelillate, is a derivative of Candelilla Wax. The free acids of Candelilla are reduced using vegetable based cetearyl alcohol to create a more amorphous wax with reduced crystallinity through a reaction to a low acid value. This reduction in acid value, through the formation of esters, lowers the potential for interaction with other cosmetic raw materials such as the free ions found in many cosmetic pigments.
