A special formulation developed by Multiceras, Candeuba is the “ultimate generation wax,” as coined by Multiceras, and is mainly composed of vegetable origin ingredients. Candeuba is available in pastilles and powder forms.

Also available through Horn Care Elements in the Western US is Royal BWX (beeswax), Candelilla Real (Euphorbia Cerifera wax), Carnauba wax (Copernicia Cerifera wax), microcrystalline waxes and paraffin waxes.
