Beeswax can be used in the entire range of cosmetic products, for example in formulations, sticks, salves, make-up, hair care products, etc. Advantages of beeswax are high binding strength, pronounced plasticity, excellent emulsifiability, relatively low melting point, highly occlusive character. In sticks beeswax improves structure, oil retention, firmness, adhesion, pay-off and mould release. In emulsions beeswax functions as a consistency regulator and as a co-emulsifier and contributes to skin feel, emolliency, barrier function and appearance.
Worker bees that are 12-18 days old make beeswax from specialized glands on the underside of their abdomens. The white wax capping on the honeycomb are the cleanest and most desirable to use in cosmetics. This wax can be melted and mixed with various vegetable and essential oils to make a luscious emollient base and acts as a natural preservative for your creations. Beeswax holds in moisture and is known to have sun-blocking properties. This quality as great for your skin as well as wood and leather.
