This wax is practically insoluble in water; partially soluble in hot ethanol (90%) and in ether; completely soluble in fatty and essential oils.

EAWC delivers the very best quality sustainably-sourced beeswax, which supports communities, enable them to thrive and means our customers can create truly natural ethical products supported by supply transparency from ‘Hive to Formula’.

EAWC beeswax is secreted by wild bee broods whilst making honey. Beekeeping is a sustainable activity which contributes to agriculture and increases biodiversity via bee pollination.
