Australian Beeswax and Australian Camel Milk Combine for Lip Balm Bliss

As beekeepers, we love knowing how people and companies use our pure Australian beeswax. It’s amazing and gratifying to see where the wax our bees have produced ends up! Working at The BeeKeeper® is always full of surprises when we hear how people are using it!

We sell our beeswax at markets in Port Macquarie and also online, and it’s always fun to hear how people are using it, whether it’s just a 1kg beeswax block ,or beeswax chips and chunks, or bulk beeswax 10kg slabs in wholesale quantities.

Sometimes it’s artists using the beeswax for encaustic paintings, or a copper art artisan using beeswax to pack the back of each piece.

Then there are some fantastic producers of non-toxic, no-waste beeswax wraps such as ApiWraps and Amber’s Food Wraps.

Our beeswax is also used by indigenous musicians seeking wax for their didgeridoo mouth pieces and of course lots of beeswax goes to people making beeswax candles as well as craftspeople who use the beeswax to coat thread.

Furniture makers also love using our beeswax to make beautiful furniture polish for natural timbers. Some people also use beeswax to condition their shoes and leather belts and to make drawers slide easier.

Another big reason people buy beeswax locally from us (besides knowing we’re the beekeepers who actually harvest and melt the wax so know exactly which forest it’s been produced in) is to make gorgeous natural skin balms.

Research and testing by the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) has shown that a huge percentage of imported beeswax coming into Australia is contaminated or totally fraudulent in that it is paraffin, a petrochemical product. Yikes.

When it comes to what you put on your skin, you really want to know that the beeswax in it is the real deal. That’s why we’re excited to know another Australian company, Summer Land Camels based in Queensland, chooses our beeswax to make their incredible lip conditioner.

Beeswax and camel milk? That’s a combination we hadn’t heard of until Summer Land Camels started using our beeswax in their products.

We know how great beeswax is for the skin, but according to Summer Land Camels, “Camel Milk, known as white gold, has been cherished for thousands of years for its benefits to hair and skin health. Camel milk contains vitamins, minerals, phospholipids, essential fatty acids, alpha hydroxy acids, immune proteins and prebiotics (food for your skin biome). Camel milk supports and promotes a healthy, biodiverse biome, reduces inflammation and stimulates your body to generate healthy youthful skin.”

“Beeswax is more than just a by-product of honey production; it’s a skincare superstar. Camel Milk is more than just a novelty item, it’s a tried and true skin health ingredient backed by science.  Both ingredients have moisturising, antibacterial, and soothing properties which make them ideal ingredients for a variety of skin types and conditions.“

Summer Land Camels deeply moisturising Lip Conditioner is packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals to soften and nourish your lips. Blended with Camel Milk powder, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Vitamin E, Sweet Orange Oil it can also be used as a spot treatment for bites, rashes or other skin issues.  

If you’d like to order some pure Australian beeswax for yourself you can do so in our online store. Or if you require greater wholesale quantities (more than one 10kg slab of beeswax) for your company you can also get in touch.
