Beeswax - Beelieve it or not
Source: Extracted from honeycomb through heating and cooling
You may struggle to find a healthcare product on the market which doesn't contain beeswax. This all-natural, versatile wonder has been used for hundreds of years by the Egyptians, the Romans and many other civilisations up until the present day. Its lenitive nature makes it the go-to ingredient for lip balms and glosses, hand and face creams and moisturisers, while visually it gives a sleek and shiny look - particularly when applied to the hair, beard or moustache. Its consistency and chemical attributes make it of great use in many other areas such as candle making, in which it has been associated since the 6th century. Beeswax makes for easy storage and application of liquid based products as it is a natural thickener and will never spoil - simply reheat and reuse. While its colour is a telling factor in the purity of beeswax (white being the purest, with yellow and brownish hues collected from pollen and honeycombs more visible in the crude product), it is common practice for the wax to be naturally bleached before wholesale, for a pleasing, creamy white coloured product.
