Why avoid beeswax?
Beeswax is derived from the bees and is not strictly vegan. If you are vegan, then you should avoid beeswax. Also, we are essentially stealing their homes in the form of beeswax. In most cases, the bees are killed after the work is done.
Alternatives of beeswax
The alternatives of beeswax include the following:
- Candelilla Wax: This wax is native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States of America. Candelilla wax is a cheap lubricant.
- Carnauba Wax: This wax is sourced from Brazilian palm trees. The carnauba wax is a popular beeswax alternative in natural cosmetics.
- Bayberry Wax: Bayberry wax is a more expensive alternative to beeswax. This wax is manufactured using boiling berries of the wax myrtle shrub. The vegetable wax is then skimmed off the water’s surface.
- Rice Bran Wax: The dewaxing of rice bran oil results in producing a wax substitute. The wax has a smooth and non-greasy feel, making it an ideal product for skincare.
- Sunflower Wax: Sunflower wax forms when you dewax sunflower oil. It has a high oil binding capacity that makes it non-greasy.
