This exciting new line is an all-natural replacement for Microbeads. The personal care industry has been working diligently to deal with the escalating challenge of microbeads. Industry leaders, such as Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, The Body Shop, L’Oreal, Colgate Palmolive and more have committed to ridding their lines of plastic microbeads, targeting complete elimination by 2017 or before. With this line, Impact Colors helps resolve this challenge for the personal care industry, the environment, and consumers.

Candelilla wax is a 100% natural substance, hard, stable, protective and easily moldable. Its distinctive properties make it an essential ingredient for the manufacturing of cosmetics, gum base, inks, dyes, adhesives, coatings, emulsions, polishes and pharmaceutical products.  

Candelilla wax is obtained from the wild Candelilla plant, which  grows in the Chihuahuan desert in the north of Mexico and  south of Texas. In order to protect itself from adverse weather  conditions and to help retain water, the plant exudes a grayish  powder to cover its surface, mostly comprised of wax. The wax is extracted by using a very mild form of citric acid that is less stressful on the environment, safer for the harvesters and that produces a purer wax.
