Our cosmetic grade beeswax 100% natural is filtered to remove any impurities and then shaped into small pellets for ease of use. This beeswax has a mild, sweet aroma. The natural golden colour may lend a slightly yellow hue to your products. Cosmos approved.
Acts as an emulsifier and provides body and stiffness to lotions, creams, and body butter. Beeswax is added to soap to make them harder and longer lasting, and to lip balms to add body.
Beeswax is also used for candles as it burns cleaner and longer than petroleum-based petroleum waxes.
Formulation usage Tips
Beeswax has a relatively low melting point range of 62 °C to 64 °C (144 °F to 147 °F). If beeswax is heated above 85 °C (185 °F) discoloration occurs. The flash point of beeswax is 204.4 °C (400 °F).
Our wax pastilles are very small for easier melting and measuring. Yellow, melting point 60c. Beeswax is a natural secretion of the honey bee, Apis Mellifera. It is widely used in the cosmetics industry as an emulsifier, emollient and thickener. Beeswax soothes and softens the skin, protects it from dehydration and provides antibacterial properties. It is an essential ingredient in lip care products, stick formulations, creams, lotions and other emulsions.
I’ve used this in my most recent lip balm and find it so easy to use! I love it.
