Beeswax is produced by the female worker honeybees. The wax is secreted from wax glands on the underside of the bee’s abdomen and is molded into six-sided cells which are filled with honey, then capped with more wax. When honey is harvested, the top layer of wax that covers the cells is removed from each hexagon-shaped cell by centrifugal process. The material is slightly heated, the residual honey is dissolved in water and separated. The congealed melt wax is then removed and the process is repeated to purify. The resulting wax is formed into pastilles. At this point, yellow beeswax can be bleached to become white.
Our beeswax pastilles are most commonly used as a binder in creams, ointments, lipsticks, eye make-up and suppositories. Beeswax as a covering material is a registered additive in the food industry. It has some emulsification properties, whereby Pseudo ”water in oil” type emulsions are produced. When these types of emulsions are applied to the skin, the water evaporates causing a cooling effect and leaving behind the softening and humectancy properties of the beeswax
