The honey bee, Apis Mellifera, secretes Beeswax in order to build up a hexagonal cell in which honey is stored. Wax first secreted by the bee is a transparent colorless liquid, which turns into a semi-solid substance on contact with the atmosphere. Beeswax varies in color from yellow through brown to black, and it is believed that the pollen carried by the bee affects the coloration. We carry cosmetic/pharmaceutical grade beeswax in both natural yellow and white pastilles. The white pastilles have simply been further refined.
NOTE: color shades of this wax will vary from batch to batch. This is a natural occurring process and will not harm your applications.
