This beeswax is 100% natural. This wax is United States Pharmaceutical (USP) grade so it has been filtered and purified without the use of harsh chemicals or bleaching agents. This wax has a slightly deeper, yellow color than our other USP Grade White Beeswax. It comes in little tiny granules (called prills), just like you see in the photo. You can easily use a tiny bit or a bulk amount. It has the same natural scent that you find with all pure beeswax. A note of caution, please do no exceed 200°F.
