Is cire carnauba vegan?

Carnauba wax, also known as cire carnauba, is a vegetable wax derived from the leaves of the Brazilian palm tree Copernicia prunifera. It is a hard, yellowish-brown wax that is often used as a food additive to give products a glossy finish or as a coating for candies, chocolates, and other sweets. Carnauba wax is also commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products, such as lipstick, mascara, and hair styling products, due to its emollient and water-resistant properties. It is considered safe for consumption and is commonly used in vegan and vegetarian food products as an alternative to beeswax.
