|Lately I have been getting a few enquiries from people who are unsure about the beeswax they should be using for their product, and what the difference is between them. It is time to solve the mystery.|
Here at Heirloom we have 4 different types of beeswax - natural block, natural beeswax sheets, golden pellets and white. All of these are interchangeable (except for rolled beeswax candles), so if you have one type already you should be able to use it for your application. However, if you need to purchase beeswax for the item you would like to make why not get the one
most suitable for your needs.
All the forms of beeswax use the same INCI name of Cera Alba. The difference in their colour and nature comes from the way it is treated once it has been taken from the hives.
If you wish to use products that are as close to nature as possible then this is the one for you.
The Golden beeswax pellets are put through additional clay filters to remove any colour inconsistencies and impurities in the wax. It is then dripped onto moving conveyers for pellet manufacture.
If colour, ease of use or lack of aroma is important to you then this is your product of choice.
All these beeswax types can be purchased from www.heirloombodycare.com.au
