Used in various cosmetic formulations, beeswax makes an excellent emulsifier. Can be used in candle, and bar soap recipes to assist with a harder finished product. Used in body creams and salves it will lend its healing benefits and create a smooth, thick consistency. Practically insoluble in water, it forms a protective barrier between your skin and the environment.
Have you ever tried cutting beeswax blocks before? It's truly a near impossible task! With that in mind, these "beads" are so much easier to work with, as they are uniform in size, making them a snap to weight and melt. This version holds their natural yellow beeswax color.
TIP: To create a good emulsion system with beeswax, sometimes the addition of borax really helps.
