Beeswax beads are small, round pellets made of natural beeswax. They are commonly used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and candle making.
In the cosmetics industry, beeswax beads are used as a natural emulsifier, which helps to bind water and oil-based ingredients in lotions, creams, and balms. Beeswax beads also have emollient properties, meaning they can help to soften and soothe the skin.
In the pharmaceutical industry, beeswax beads are used as a coating for pills and tablets, as well as a thickener for ointments and creams.
In candle making, beeswax beads are a popular alternative to synthetic waxes, as they are a natural and sustainable material. Beeswax candles burn slowly and cleanly, producing a natural, honey-like scent.
Aside from its various uses, beeswax has been used for its health benefits. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral substance. Beeswax has been found to have wound-healing properties, making it useful in treating minor cuts and burns. Additionally, it has been shown to have a protective effect on the skin, helping to lock in moisture and prevent dryness.
