PRODUCT & SOURCING

BEESWAX

Beeswax is naturally produced by honey bees (Apis mellifera), for the formation of honey combs in the beehive. In its original form, raw beeswax is white but due to pollen and other substances collected and brought into the hive by the bees, its colour progressively changes to yellowish-brown.

CARNAUBA WAX

Carnauba wax is extracted from the leaves of the Brazilian carnauba palm tree (Copernicia prunifera). This vegetable wax is pale yellow to dark brownish-grey. It is the hardest, naturally occurring wax.

CANDELILLA WAX

Candelilla wax is obtained from the leaves of the Mexican candelilla bush (Euphorbia cerifera und Euphorbia antisyphilitica). This vegetable wax is hard, brittle, yellowish-brown and, whitish to translucid in colour.
