Candelilla wax is obtained through extraction from the plants by immersion in a tank containing boiling water acidified with sulfuric acid. Candelilla wax is a hard and brittle wax. It is composed of about 20-29% wax esters, 12-14% alcohols and sterols, 49-50% hydrocarbons, 7-9% free acids, 2-3% moisture and 1% mineralĀ  matter. The chemical and physical properties of the wax vary with the age of the plant and the year in which it is collected. The wax is insoluble in water but soluble in acetone, chloroform, benzene, and other organic solvents.
