Beeswax absolute is extracted from the wax by solvent extraction. Solid at room temperature, it is golden brown in colour and has a sweet, honey-like aroma.
It is known for its soothing, protective and antiseptic properties and is still used in medicine today. We use around 4kg per year, at a cost of approximately £1,200 per kilo.
We use beeswax absolute in our Sugar Babe sugar scrub for its calming, protective qualities.
