Beeswax is produced by honey bees as an exudation from the segments on the underside of the abdomen after gorging on honey or sugar syrup. The bees huddle together in the hive to raise the heat of the group to stimulate the process. Our beeswax is sold as white pellets and will melt at 64C (147F). Beeswax should be melted in a water bath in stainless steel, plastic or tin plated containers as iron, brass or copper containers can colour it. Never place the beeswax pellets directly into a pan or onto a burner as beeswax does not boil, rather it just gets hotter and hotter until it ignites and can cause a fire or can just become damaged by localised overheating. Beeswax is used in soaps, lip balms, and lotion bars as a hardener and thickener or in combination with other oils in creams and lotions where it forms a type of soap that acts as an emulsifier. The white beeswax pellets that we stock are easy to measure and handle. Some of the other uses for beeswax are to make good quality candles that burn brightly with no smoke or splutter and a pleasant aroma, as a coating for sweets and pills, in furniture polishes, for batik dyeing, to coat sewing threads and fly fishing lines, to use on sticky drawers to make them slide more smoothly, to extend the active life of penicillin in the bloodstream, in lost wax casting, as a carving wax, for grafting plants and to coat nails so they are easier to drive into hard woods. We supply 100g of beeswax pellets in a plastic (re-usable) jar or larger amounts packed in bags.

Pressed from roasted beans cocoa butter is light yellow in colour and has a wonderful, subtle chocolate aroma. Cocoa butter is a semi solid butter which is quite hard when set but melts on your skin or when warmed. Due to its high fatty acid content (mainly stearic and oleic acids) it is often used in skin care products and has soothing, softening and moisturising properties. It is also used in many quality soap and bath products for its emollient properties. Cocoa butter can be applied directly to the skin and can also be used in hair care although our shea butter is thought more effective for this purpose. Supplied in a 200g jar or larger sizes in bags. Cocoa butter should be stored sealed in a cool dark place.

Anhydrous lanolin EP EPL is produced from the multi-stage refining of wool grease, a natural, renewable raw material which is obtained from the scouring (washing) of raw wool. It is manufactured to fully meet the requirements of the current European Pharmacopoeia and existing national requirements for pesticide residues. Avena lanolin has been refined to a point where trace pesticide residues are practically undetectable so you can buy with confidence. The high purity of our lanolin, without sacrificing product colour, makes it ideal for topical pharmaceutical preparations, suppositories, lip products and body creams and lotions. Lanolin can be used in the most exacting applications where colour, odour and purity are critical and is still bought today by many customers to use directly on the hands and feet especially for rough dry and cracked skin. The intensive healing of natural lanolin assists in restoring the hands and feet to a smooth, healthy condition.

"Hooray hooray at long last I have found a UK supplier of sheeps' wool fat for my terrible feet! It is the only thing that stops them drying up and splitting. In the past I have had to get my sister to send it from Australia at great expense. Many thanks"

The nuts of the shea fruit are dried and then ground to make a fine paste which then sets to become shea butter. A universal and irreplaceable beauty care product, shea butter gets to work deep in the skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. It has vitamins A and E and is good for all skin types but is particularly recommended for dry and very dry skin. Shea butter is an excellent moisturiser and can provide protection from the UV rays of the sun as well as hot winds carrying dust and fine sand that dry the skin. Shea butter is also often used as a wonderful skin cream for infants. Shea butter is an ivory colour and is a semi solid butter which is quite hard when set but melts on your skin or when warmed by the body's heat. Due to its high fatty acid content (mainly stearic and oleic acids) it is often used in high quality skin care products for its ability to aid with skin elasticity and moisturising properties. It is also used in many quality soap and bath products for its emollient properties. Shea butter is also popular in hair care and is said to revitalise and add bounce, shine and lustre to normally dull or dry hair. Supplied in a 200g jar or larger sizes in bags. Shea butter should be stored sealed in a cool dark place.
