Term: Beeswax

Beeswax is made by the female worker-bee for honeycomb, so it is a natural by-product of her work. To produce one pound of beeswax, the worker bee herself eats about ten pounds of honey, flies 150,000 miles, and visits 33 million flower blossoms. Beeswax may or may not originate from virgin bees.

Beeswax acts as a creamy, moisture-rich base. It is used in both hair care and skin care products.

Beeswax acts as a natural emulsifier and texturizer in hair and skin care products. Some hair care products use only the purest cleaned, filtered, natural beeswax which has not been bleached or chemically treated.

Pure beeswax may have a fragrance which is nothing more than the smell of fresh honey due to the purity of the beeswax. Pure beeswax is also less even-coloured than most beeswax products because its level of purity.

Some beeswax is bleached, and then diluted with other synthetic waxes like paraffin, reducing the effectiveness of the beeswax.

Excessive heating of beeswax also reduces its benefits, such as its ability to resist airborne particles like dust. Some of the best wax is carefully prepared in small batches at the lowest temperature possible.
