Mexico : Biodiversity and local development
Mexico : Biodiversity and local development


Candelilla wax comes from a wild shrub that grows in the Chihuahan Desert, in Mexico, a very rich biodiversity zone. This wax is used in cosmetics for its softening and protective properties, particularly in hair care and skin care products and in make-up. In order to improve the conditions of production under which candelilla wax is produced while respecting biodiversity, We and our  partners provide support to 225 rural producers, known as “candelilleros”, by structuring the production and sourcing of the wax and improving access to the Mexican social security system.
