Description

Pure beeswax is white in colour but usually, it appears yellow/orange coloured. This is due to natural staining from pollen and propolis gathered when the bees are producing the wax.

To remove the colouring and produce a white wax, the very highest grade lemon-coloured crude beeswax is gently melted over water and then allowed to settle.
The colour is then removed using an organic and sustainable proprietary method. The beeswax is then micro-filtered to remove all dross before being passed through a pelletising machine.

Beeswax is produced by young worker bees and serves as the construction material for the hive. It is produced by special glands on the bee's abdomen and then chewed and moulded into intricate cells that store honey, bee larvae and royal jelly and more.

Chemically, Beeswax is comprised of esters, fatty acids and long-chain fatty alcohols. It is brittle at cold temperatures, becomes mouldable once above room temperature and melts at 62 – 65°C.
