These beautiful sunbleached beeswax bars are handcrafted from our Australian, Tropical North QLD honeycomb, obtained from beehives which are surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest. We manage our hives naturally, which means we do not use any chemicals, antibiotics or smoke that may leave residues in the wax, a definite plus for use in skincare products.
After the delicious honey has been cold pressed and removed from the comb, the resulting beeswax is naturally filtered several times to remove any impurities, then placed in the sun for several weeks to bleach it whiter. Although this is a more time consuming option than utilising the usual chemical bleaching methods, it results in a much healthier product.
These sunbleached beeswax bars appeal to those who prefer a lighter colour in their homemade skin care products or natural candles, without the toxins present from chemical bleaching.
Artists using beeswax for their encaustic projects often prefer the sunbleached, rather than natural, beeswax for combining with their colour pigments.
Note: although the sunbleached bars are a lot lighter in colour than the natural beeswax bars, they are not perfectly white like chemically bleached bars.
The listed price is for one 30g (1 oz) bar of pure Bryn Hill beeswax.
