Beeswax is secreted by the glands of the honeybee (Apis Mellifera) and is used as a building material for honeycombs. Modern agriculture depends on professional beekeeping for pollination of crops. The large number of agricultural countries exporting Beeswax ensures that it is never in short supply. Because of the highly complex composition of beeswax and its soft pliable nature, Beeswax remains an indispensable raw material for many finished products even after centuries of commercial use.

For each customer’s application we guarantee consistent quality and availability by careful blending of selected waxes. Quality is strictly controlled in our modern production facilities as well as in our well-equipped laboratory.

Beeswax has been used for thousands of years for its unique chemistry which has the ability to produce creamy textures in a variety of cosmetic applications. In emulsions, the free fatty acids can be used to make in-situ emulsifiers, improving emulsion stability.
