Beeswax is considered to be among man’s earliest raw materials. Adopted by ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, Beeswax was ancient man's first cosmetic & medicinal material. The bees was is filtered naturally by pouring the melted wax through a double metal sieve. This filtering process removes the impurities that are found in unfiltered beeswax which might include pollen and bee parts. Once the beeswax is filtered, it is poured into silicone molds, to cool and dry. No additional processing is performed other than this. We are proud to say that we source all of our beeswax domestically from beekeepers in the Pacific Northwest whom we have long established relationships with and we strongly believe it is some of the highest quality wax around!
Shea Butter comes from the fruit of the Shea Tree, which is found only in Africa. The Shea tree produces a fruit, similar to a plum, which contains a nut which dried and the kernel inside is then removed. The kernel is ground up to obtain Shea Butter, which has softening, nourishing and moisturizing benefits. It also protects against the sun’s rays, considered an anti-oxidant (vitamin E) and has regenerating and restructuring properties.
