Organic Yellow Beeswax is sourced from regions around the world that follow USDA NOP guidelines. Koster Keunen is a leader in organic waxes and offers pure Certified Organic, Non-GMO Beeswax. Certified Organic Yellow Beeswax is processed in our facility in Watertown, Connecticut following the USDA requirements. This beeswax has gone through minimal intervention from the hive to the purchaser to keep with the USDA and NOP rules. Organic beeswax must come from areas where no industrialized farming is taking place. Bees can typically fly up to six miles while collecting pollen and therefore the full area must be free of all pesticides. Organic beeswax is 100% pure beeswax that goes through double processing to remove color and odor from the crude material. True organic beeswax only goes through minimal processing allowed by the NOP.

Beeswax comes from the honeybee Apis Mellifera and is used as a building material for honeycombs. Bees create the wax which will be used to make the honeycomb that stores honey and pollen and offers brood protection. Beeswax is a remarkable ingredient. It thickens and structures oils by forming stable gel networks where gel viscosity and hardness are proportional to the percent of beeswax. Stable gels with beeswax also depend on the oil to wax compatibility. The uniqueness of beeswax lies in its dual functionality as a structuring agent and plasticizer which is important for structural integrity and smooth textures.

Our organic beeswax can be used in all applications including pharmaceuticals, food, and personal care products and allows products to maintain organic label certification according to the USDA NOP. All general industries can use this product to make surface and furniture polishes, candles, crayons, beeswax wraps, as well as waterproofing of fabric and rope. Our organic certifier is Baystate Organic and our certificate is available upon written request.
