New for 2019!
Humanitarian Beeswax: The first sustainably sourced, NGO verified beeswax in the world. This program is estimated to affect more than 7000 people in rural areas of West Africa, ensuring a living wage for beekeepers and their families. It is the only beeswax that has a transparent supply chain, processing facility at the local level, and direct relationships with beekeepers. Why? Because we believe that ethically sourcing beeswax is the right thing to do.
Kostol ApiFree: A new, natural thickener and emulsifler designed for products that cannot contain PEG's or animal by-products. Launching May 2019.
