Food and cosmetic use
Beeswax is an exquisite substance that is secreted by worker honeybees. This line of pure, filtered beeswax comes from beekeepers here in Cascadia that we have a wonderful working relationship with. This beautiful wax is the finest quality that we’ve found. It produces a very fragrant, clean, and perfectly filtered product without the debris and muddy color found in typical waxes. Use it for cosmetics, salves, body care products, or lotions. You can also melt it down to make your own aromatic candles. Beeswax works well in cosmetic products because of the “wax esters” that exist in both beeswax and human skin and it is these compounds which help to bind and emulsify ointments, lipsticks and lotions. As a natural hydrating ingredient that increases essential moisture in the skin, it is commonly found in hand and body creams that help retain natural skin moisture and in the relief of itching from sensitive skin.
