From the belly of a bee to your skincare cupboard
You might be surprised to learn that beeswax comes from four glands on the underside of a young bee. And it’s amazing stuff — without beeswax, there would be no hives. It has the delicate strength to support the whole hive and form the intricate honeycomb shape.
