Yes, beeswax is a natural produce made entirely be bees. Beeswax is made by young bees between 12 and 17 day of their lives. Small blocks of fresh wax is produced on their glands. It is estimated that between 4 and 8 kg of honey is being used in the process of production of 1kg of beeswax. Beeswax contains nothing more than nectar and enzymes. Therefore it’s the safest option of all possible wax types. It’s food safe and can be used in direct contact with any food not contamination it at all!
