Beeswax minor components: A new approach

Cosmetics and Toiletries 106(2): 83-89

Beeswax minor components: A new approach

Beeswax may contain 2-5% non-wax (minor) components derived from propolis, which cause the liquid wax to be slightly opaque. This can be explained by the partial solubility of highly polar plant-derived propolis in the relatively low polarity wax compounds. Several factors affect the concentrations of the non-wax components; these can be extracted by methanol-acetone or ethanol.
