Koster Keunen NF Candelilla Wax is a vegetable wax that contains natural hydrocarbons. Candelilla produces excellent gloss and structure and is ideal for use where firm consistency and high melt point are important. This material complies with the NF monograph and is suitable for food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications.
Candelilla has water repellent and film forming properties. Candelilla wax can be mixed with other waxes to add hardness to them without increasing melt point. Formulators can use NF Candelilla as a glazing agent in food, confections and pharmaceuticals. Candelilla is also a vegan alternative for gelling oils in nutraceutical applications.
