100% Pure Australian Beeswax
The wax is collected when processing and harvesting our honey and then hand crafted by us into 30g beeswax bars. The beeswax is rendered approximately 3 times to remove any impurities and we make the beeswax only from wax directly from our apiaries or from other beekeepers whose practices are known to us. We only use 100% Australian beeswax, we do not use any imported beeswax.
We do not bleach our beeswax and prefer to preserve its natural yellow colour. Natural beeswax has the fragrance of honey and is pale yellow in colour. Slight variations in colour can occur depending on purity, the region, and the type of flowers gathered by the bees. Our beeswax contains no additives and is not adulterated in any way.
We use custom made moulds which include our company logo and "Product of Australia" to give consumer confidence that it is only 100% Australian beeswax. To release the beeswax bars from our moulds we use a food grade release agent and this may leave a sticky residue on the bars.
There is no expiry date on beeswax and it can be heated and reused.
