What? Beeswax, one of nature’s most beautiful products, is a substance that is secreted by four pairs of glands on the underside of a worker honey bee’s abdomen. It comes from the same source as you get your honey from.

Why? In manufacturing, yellow and white beeswax are used as thickeners, emulsifiers, and as stiffening agents in cosmetics.
