INCI Name : Cera Alba (Beeswax)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
Here at Shay and Company we offer you two types of beeswax. We have smaller beeswax prills and slightly larger white beeswax beads. Both products are white in color. Our beeswax is 100% natural and are refined through physical processes – nothing chemical. The color may vary from white to off white with a mild, honey aroma.
Beeswax prills are smaller in size and are pharmaceutical grade. Our beeswax prills are put through a mechical filtration process to remove the yellow color, and not bleached with an oxidizing agent.
Beeswax beads are slightly larger and are bleached and deodorized so they are a standard white in formulas.
Beeswax makes an excellent texture stabilizer for soap bars, salves, lotion bars, body butters, lip balms, body scrubs and so much more. You can melt beeswax and then add into a blend of butters and oils, like our organic shea, organic mango, organic cocoa and a little castor oil to create a creamy salve, or add into a lotion bar using our melt-and-pour white soap base and adding in some organic jojoba oil and Oregon hazelnut oil.
Beeswax can also be used in baking, making edibles and chocolates!
Beeswax beads are sold in 1-pound, 5-pound and 50-pound sizes. Please email us for orders larger than 150-pounds.
