Beeswax is a natural secretion of honey bees. Natural beeswax has the beautiful, sweet aroma of honey and a rich, golden color. Our cosmetic beeswax is decolorized and filtered to remove impurities and aroma, and pelletized for easy use. The color may vary from white to off white. Use this wax in creams, lotions, balms, body butters and other formulations where rigidity or body are required. It lends emollient, softening properties to your products and works as a humectant. When added to soap, beeswax lends hardness and resistance to melting. In candle making, pure beeswax candles are better for the environment than paraffin candles, and beeswax should be considered when making aromatherapy grade candles. Beeswax also acts as an emulsifier when combined at the right proportions with with Borax.
