We’ve put Beeswax to good use for centuries. Traces of it have been found amongst Roman ruins, in the tombs of ancient Egypt and even in Viking shipwrecks.
Whatever you plan to use it for, get your wholesale Beeswax from a trusted supplier.
Bees secrete this all-natural product following a visit to a flower to consume honey, but it takes a lot of meals to generate the wax. To harvest a pound of Beeswax, the bee will need to have made around 33million visits to flowers!
No bees are harmed when the Beeswax is harvested, and so it is a wonderful cruelty-free, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly option for many products.
With a boom in more eco-conscious living, there has been an explosion in companies producing beeswax wraps to store food. Beeswax is a food-grade product, so it is safe to use alongside food and provides a sturdy wipe-clean finish to fabrics that can be moulded with the heat of the hands to secure wrapped items.
Granules are the ideal product for this as their smaller size will melt better, and white granules mean there will be no changes to the colour of the fabric, unlike the yellow variety.
Furniture polish is another household item that may contain Beeswax, where it is prized for its ability to feed and protect wood. When used, it helps to form a seal on all types of wooden surfaces and adds shine to them. For the same reason, it also makes its way into shoe polishes.
In the past, the primary use of Beeswax was to make candles. Beeswax has a high-temperature melting point which means candles are less likely to melt in hot weather.
This natural product also has the lowest toxicity point of all candle materials; so unlike paraffin candles will not release toxic by-products into the air when burned. It also has non-drop properties and a mild sweet honey scent that will blend well with other scents added to the candle.
The trend for adding Beeswax to skincare products is growing, indeed some brands make their name out of their prolific use of the substance.
The waxy substance makes for a great barrier cream, and when added to lip balms, moisturisers and salves, it can help boost moisturisation levels. It can also add shine to hair when used in hair styling products like pomades and waxes.
