All of Moonsun's products, except the Beeswax Body Oil, are vegan, which means that there are no animal by-products, which means that they do not contain any animal ingredients or derivatives and are not tested on animals. Beeswax Body Oil contains beeswax that comes from organic beekeeping. Are you curious about the natural treasures from the bees and why organically grown beeswax is preferable to regular beeswax?
Beeswax has long been a valuable ingredient in skin care products and other uses for centuries. Its natural skin care properties have made it a popular choice in cosmetics and medicine. But when we think about beeswax, it's important to understand the differences between organically grown beeswax and regular beeswax, and how our choice can affect the environment and biodiversity.
What is beeswax? Beeswax is a natural substance produced by honey bees by converting nectar from flowers and other plants. This wax is used by the bees to build up their honeycombs and seal the honey cells.
Common beeswax comes from honeycombs and are used to store honey and raise bees. To harvest this wax, the honeycombs must be removed from the hive and then melted down to extract the beeswax. This process requires a lot of energy and can negatively affect the bees and their habitat if not done carefully. The common beeswax is often subject to pesticide residues and other impurities that can affect its purity and quality.
Organically grown beeswax: Organically grown beeswax is produced in beehives where bees are allowed to live in their natural environments without the use of chemical pesticides or synthetic substances. The bees collect nectar from organic flowers and plants, resulting in a beeswax that is free of pesticide residues and other contaminants. In addition, a more gentle method is used to extract this wax, which reduces the negative impact on bees and their habitats.
Organically grown beeswax has a higher quality than regular beeswax. Because it is not exposed to pesticides and other pollutants, it retains its natural properties and benefits for skin care and other uses. In addition, organically grown beeswax is more sustainable and gentler on the environment, making it a more responsible choice for both us and the planet.
For Moonsun, sustainability is a foundation for the brand. By choosing organically grown beeswax, we support sustainable agriculture and the preservation of bee habitats. This type of beeswax is grown with care for the health of the bees and the environment, which contributes to preserving biodiversity and the balance of ecosystems.
The differences between organically grown beeswax and regular beeswax are therefore significant in terms of quality, purity and durability. But also with consideration for the bees, who keep their natural environment. Organically grown beeswax is produced without chemical pesticides and other pollutants, resulting in a more natural and sustainable wax. By choosing organically grown beeswax, we support sustainable agriculture, bees and the environment while taking care of our own skin with a cleaner and more natural product.
