BEESWAX

Beeswax

Overview

Cera flava, better known as beeswax, is prepared by melting and purifying the honeycomb of the honeybee. The mixing of pollen oils into honeycomb wax turns the white wax into a yellow or brown colour.

Sources

We can procure African beeswax (rich yellow to orange colour) from Central & East African regions.

Grades

Beeswax is often combined with other ingredients and modified to improve its properties, sparking the development of adulterated beeswax and various synthetic waxes that are more cost-effective to produce. Organic beeswax is extremely popular amongst consumers who today are more health conscious and prefer to purchase more natural products.

Most of our beeswax harvesters are organically certified by Ecocert, a leading industry body that promotes good environmental and societal practices across all sectors, all over the world.

We carry out a systematic analysis of physiochemical parameters, adulterants and contaminants to ensure that health and security standards are being met.

Process

To obtain the best quality beeswax, we have implemented a control test system which ensures that all critical points of the wax are carried out following a filtration method that applies strong attention to detail.

Pollination

With beeswax being a coveted resource within our portfolio, pollination is a vital process of nature and is extremely important in the food growing processes. Without the necessary number of pollinators, we would not be able to grow the crops necessary for food. With honey bees being the most widely known pollinators, pretty much one in three bites of our food includes a bee-pollinated product. Our diet without bees would be limited and dull.

Uses
