Yellow Beeswax - Pharmaceutical Grade

*This product is for External Use Only. It is not for internal consumption

Yellow Beeswax is a natural product extracted from worker bees of the Genus Apis. On the underside of their abdomen, bees have wax secreting glands that produce wax scales. It is these scales that form the cell walls of the honeycomb. 

 

Yellow Beeswax is obtained from ‘cappings’ — the new wax that seals honey in the comb cells. After the residual honey is removed from the cappings, the wax is heated and filtered multiple times. This helps clear debris found in the crude wax. Unlike the white variety, Yellow Beeswax does not undergo further refinement; resulting in a more pure, higher quality product. Craft 360 Pure Yellow Beeswax has a golden yellow shade and smells of natural Beeswax.

 

Beeswax is formed mainly from a mixture of hydrocarbons and fatty esters. It is known to contain over 250 different compounds. For centuries Yellow Beeswax has been used as an ingredient in personal care. It can be utilised in many ways.


Benefits of Beeswax: 

  • Has a long history of treating burns and wounds due to its antibacterial effect 
  • Scientific studies have shown Beeswax can reduce the chances of skin irritation and soothe psoriasis and eczema
  • Used in many anhydrous balms and serums due to its ability to thicken products
  • Adds strength, improves structure, oil retention and mould release for stick and bar formulations
  • Has the lowest toxicity for candle materials — featuring none of the harmful chemicals found in paraffin wax


Applications and Recommendations

*This is a guide only, please seek advice from a product specialist when formulating your products.

Beeswax has a melting point of 62-65°C (143.6-149.0°F). Due to this low melting point, overheating Beeswax may affect its scent and colour. 


Craft 360 Pure Yellow Beeswax can be used in creams, lotions, salves, ointments, candles, and more. To melt, slowly heat to 65°C. Add into the oil phase of the formulation. 

Emulsions: 3-8% 

Oil-based serum: 0.5-2%

Deodorant bars: 28-45%

Lip balms and ointments: 10-25% 

Lotion bars: 30-40%

Candle making: 15-75%


INCI: Beeswax (EU: Cera Alba)


Craft 360 Pure Yellow Beeswax meets and complies with (British Pharmacopoeia) standards. 


Please Note: When used alone, Beeswax is not an emulsifier. To form a chemically stable emulsion, Beeswax is often paired with Sodium Borate (Borax). 


It is recommended to add Borax — 5-7% of the Beeswax weight. 

Example: For 5g of Beeswax, 0.25-0.35g of Borax would be required.
