Cultivation Definitions

Beeswax is secreted by honey bees. High Vitamin A content promotes cell repair. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and antibacterial properties. Because beeswax works as a natural emollient and humectant, it is fantastic in balms and salves.

Extraction Method: Harvested & Ethically Handled.

Shelf Life: Indefinite when stored properly.

Storage: Keep sealed in a cool, dark place. Heat, oxygen, and light degrade the product.

Beeswax is fantastic in balms and salves to impart staying-power and emollient characteristics. At high concentrations, it hardens products and slows the speed of absorbency. To use, carefully shave off necessary amount with a grater or sharp knife. Store excess shavings in a plastic bag or mason jar. Best melted with indirect heat in a double boiler; direct heat should be avoided as beeswax is flammable. When overheated, product may discolour.

100% pure unrefined Cera alba.
