Contact us to buy


White Beeswax CN-1429-P complies with the British (BP) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph.Eur).

EAWC cosmetic and pharmaceutical grade white beeswax is offered in white to yellowish-white pellets. The beeswax is a natural, sustainable ingredient used as an emulsifier for cosmetic, skin products, lip balms, creams and lotions.

The pellets are a fine-grained matt, non-crystalline fracture; the wax becomes soft and pliable when warmed by hand. Odour, faint and characteristic of honey. Relative density, about 0.96.
This wax is practically insoluble in water; partially soluble in ethanol (90%). and in ether; completely soluble in volatile and fixed oils.

White Beeswax is produced by refining and bleaching the natural wax the bees produce.

EAWC (The East Africa Wax Company) is a joint venture with British Wax and is based in Kenya. 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.
