Make Healing Skin Products with Aloe Beeswax
This beeswax comes from hives high up in the mountains where the bees fed on our indigenous Cape Aloe, a.k.a Aloe Ferox. You will notice that the beeswax is a deep caramel brown.
Easy to Use
The Aloe Beeswax is supplied in 5 blocks, each of which weighs approximately 40g. This makes the wax easy to use in cosmetic products.
