Beeswax is harvested from honey combs of bees. It is molten, purified, separated and strained. White beeswax is bleached by diatomaceous earth and carbon and finally filtrated to provide a high quality beeswax.
It has a pleasant, honey-like odour and is supplied in pellet form.
Beeswax can be used in sticks, creams, lotions, sun care products, make-up and hair care. In stick formulations it improves the structure, firmness and oil retention as well as the firmness and adhesion properties of the product. It also facilitates mould release. In emulsions it acts as a viscosifying and stabilizing agent, softens and smoothes the skin. Its occlusive properties are advantageous in barrier creams and color cosmetics.
