Acid-Free Candelilla #152P

General Information
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.

Acid-Free Candelilla is highly compatible, inhibits crystallization, and acts as a gellant. Acid-Free Candelilla also has water repellent, moisturizing, and film forming properties.
