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 color may lend a slightly yellow hue to your products.
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.
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).
