Beeswax | INGREDIENT LIBRARY
Beeswax is a natural wax produced by honey bees to build their honeycomb.
Beeswax is a natural raw material with a very long tradition. There are indications that the wax of wild bees was collected 12,000 years before Christ's birth. About 2,500 BC, the Egyptians began beekeeping. Honey was used in ancient Egypt as a remedy and as an additive in ointments and food.
Since it is extremely skin-friendly, beeswax is very popular in cosmetics. It produces a delicate protective film on the skin, which can protect against the loss of moisture and harsh weather conditions.
