Our Beeswax Refined blocks are cosmetic grade beeswax that have been bleached and filtered to remove any impurities. These Beeswax Blocks are 100% natural and are refined through physical processes, and no chemicals are used. The natural wax is melted and filtered through active carbon to remove its scent and color, which may vary from off-white to yellow. These blocks are then used in formulations where a cream base or end product is fragrance-free and off-white/yellow in color, but to which color and fragrance can later be added.
Beeswax Blocks can be used in lotions, creams, balms, body butter and even soaps. They provide body and stiffness to formulations and assist as an incomplete emulsifier or thickener.
For candle making, natural beeswax burns cleaner and longer than petroleum-based paraffin waxes. It does not smoke as with petroleum-based paraffin. Made of 100% pure refined beeswax, this slow-burning wax is preferred when making aromatherapy-grade candles.
Caution: The melting point of this wax is between 62° and 67° C (143° to 152° F). Overheating this will impact its scent and color. Please melt at as low a heat as possible while stirring gently, and use it as soon as it is melted, as it will cook and render poor-quality results such as a cooked or burnt odor, and off-white color.
