Beeswax is a natural secretion of honey bees. Natural, unrefined beeswax has a honey-like aroma and a dark, golden color.
Our White Filtered Beeswax Pellets have been decolorized and filtered to remove impurities and aroma, and pelletized for use in cosmetics and personal care formulations. The color may vary from white to off white. Beeswax is suitable for use 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. Beeswax also acts as an emulsifier when combined at the right proportions with with Borax.
