Koster Keunen’s USDA 100% Certified Organic Beeswax guarantees that it is 100% pure making it the highest quality for cosmetic and food products. It allows our customers to maintain the “Organic” label claim according to the USDA NOP (National Organic Program).

The 100% certified organic label identifies the beeswax purity to be at least 100% organic by weight (excluding water and salt).

100% Certified Organic Beeswax may be used in applications for creams, lotions, cold creams, sunscreens, depilatories, ointments, salves, sustained release in pharmaceuticals, food additive, food inks and coatings, non-food inks and coatings, soft gels, candles, and emulsions other than cosmetics.

The 100% Certified Organic Beeswax advantages are that they are compatible with plant, animal and mineral waxes. They are compatible with fatty acids, fatty alcohols, glycerides, hydrocarbons, synthetic waxes and most other waxes, resins and oils.
