Beeswax is considered to be among man’s earliest raw materials. Adopted by ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, Beeswax was ancient man's first plastic, cosmetic, medicinal material and artist’s media for painting, sculpture and jewelry; and has been in active use for more than four thousand years. Beeswax is secreted by the honeybee (Apis Mellifera) Latin for ‘honey bearer’, which is used for building its hexagonal combs within the hive. Wax is collected by removing a portion of the hive’s cappings and then refined for use in a wide variety of applications.
