Bees Wax White (Organic), Fair Trade
BOTANICAL / INCI NAME
Cosmetic use only
Akoma's organic beeswax is prepared from raw beeswax in a fully certified organic and traditional process. The beeswax is filtered and then mixed with fullers earth to remove further impurities. The difference between the white and yellow wax is the fullers earth mixture is left longer in the white.
Africa is an ideal source of Organic Beeswax, an ingredient in many natural cosmetics, paints, crayons etc. Beeswax from non-organic hives has been found to accumulate residues of many pesticides and other products used to treat varroa mites that attack the bees. Our beeswax has no detected residues. There are many thousands of beekeepers in our producer groups so a large amount of organic beeswax is produced.
Common uses: Creams, Lipsticks, Lip Balms and salves, Perfume base, Candles
