About beeswax

WHAT IS BEESWAX?

Beeswax is a 100% all-natural wax, non-toxic waxy substance secreted by bees after they consume honey. Bees use this wax to construct their honeycombs, and when cleaned and filtered, it can be used for beautiful and beneficial candles.


Many other candle materials come from industries that harm or deplete the environment thus beeswax is best wax for candles as a renewable resource from an industry that helps the environment. Bees play a pivotal role in our lives by pollinating the crops we eat and plants in the wild. Beeswax is just another miracle that comes from these amazing insects.


PS: NO BEES WERE HARMED IN THE PRODUCTION OF BEESWAX. 

     

WHY DOES ANBO USE BEESWAX?

Beeswax candles are hands-down the best candle wax on the market compared to paraffin, soy and palm wax. ANBO believes that beeswax would make an ideal candle due to the benefits of beeswax:

 

 Toxic-free and highly eco-friendly
Beeswax do not produce toxic byproducts and heavy soot when burned. They’re 100% natural, biodegradable, non-carcinogenic and non-hazardous. 

 Burns longer and cost-effective
A high melting point (in fact the highest among all known waxes) which results in a significantly longer (2-5 times) burn time and drip very little, if any at all.

 Soot Free
Our pure beeswax and wood wick ensures you're not breathing in any chemicals or additives.

Calming ambiance
The light produced is the purest and brightest, within the same spectrum of natural sunlight, making it a great light source for minimal eye strain.

Natural honey-like scent and beautiful colouring;
Every batch of our candles is unique because its colour and scent are determined by the batch of beeswax we use.

 Does not contribute to deforestation
Compared to the bees community, the soy industry has been closely linked to deforestation. Soybean production has caused forests to be cleared and tilled, leading to destroyed habitats and soil erosion.The Amazon rainforest is one of the soy industry’s biggest victims. Deforestation there suddenly rose in 2015 and is continuing to rise due to an increase in demand for soy products. Beeswax, on the other hand, is a natural byproduct from the beekeeping industry.

Unlike palm wax or soy wax, which are being sourced from big plantation companies. Our beeswax candles are sourced from local beekeepers and imported from Europe, to ensure the quality of beeswax.
