Technical Information

Beeswax is considered to be among man’s earliest raw materials. Adopted by ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, it was ancient man’s first plastic, cosmetic, medicinal material and artist’s media for painting, sculpture and jewelry; and has been active use for more than four thousand years. It is secreted by the honeybee (Apis Mellifera) Latin for ‘honey bearer’, which is used for building its portion of the hive’s ‘capping’ and then refined for use in a wide variety of applications.

There are several economical Synthetic and Commercial Grades of Beeswax and Beeswax Substitutes with comparable physical properties, function and performance metrics.

Beeswax is compatible with most vegetable and mineral waxes and a large variety of natural and synthetic resins.
