Organic Beeswax

Organic Beeswax

Beeswax, Cera alba, is produced by the (female) worker honeybees. The bees mold the wax into six-sided cells which are filled with honey and then capped with more wax. When honey is harvested, the top layer of wax that covers the cells, called the cappings, must be removed. The exact composition of beeswax varies depending on the type of bee and the flowers they visit.

Our unrefined beeswax, which may contain some honey and propolis varies in color from a light yellow through brown and retains the sweet smell of honey. Beeswax forms a lovely, light barrier on your skin that prevents loss of moisture and helps seal in moisturizing oils and butters, without clogging pores.

Beeswax, which has been used for centuries as a natural moisturizer and protectant against the elements, is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, however, more research is needed to confirm these effects.

Beeswax is an awesome addition to natural lip balms, salves, and balms. It has moisturizing, hydrating, and healing, properties that keep your skin soft and supple. It allows the skin to breathe, does not clog pores, and locks in moisture to keep the skin well-hydrated. 

In hair care, beeswax adds moisture, hydration, and softness to hair and can add shine and glossiness to dull hair.
