Beeswax

Are you looking for a beeswax supplier with years of experience but also a real passion for innovation? Then you have come to just the right place. We are Poth Hille, beeswax suppliers of choice for a wide range of buyers in the UK. We have been in business for over 100 years, and during that time have developed a reputation as one of the leading experts in the field.

What is beeswax?

As the leading bulk beeswax suppliers online, it’s safe to say that we know our stuff! This wax is secreted by the worker bees in the hive and used in the construction of the honeycomb. A bee colony will be made up of tens of thousands of bees, producing 30-50 kilos of honey. However, they will only produce up to 3 to 5 kilos of beeswax. Our beeswax for sale is of the highest quality and is sourced from hives with reliable yields.

What is it used for?

We work with some of the largest producers of beeswax products the UK has to offer, and we see our wax used for a huge range of different applications. It has outstanding thickening and emollient properties, which has made it a firm favourite of those manufacturing cosmetic products such as lipsticks and beauty creams. It’s also commonly used in leather care products, as well as waxes for furniture. It’s used in confectionary too – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. No matter what application you have in mind, it’s likely that beeswax could be the special ingredient that you seek.

What are the benefits of beeswax?

Beeswax is one of the most popular waxes that we sell for good reason. As you have seen already, it is incredibly versatile. There are few waxes out there that can be used for so many different purposes, and this has made it very in-demand with customers buying in bulk.
One of the benefits of buying your beeswax from us is that we supply a number of different grades for you to choose from. Whatever you are planning to use yours for, you will be sure to find the perfect kind for the job here at Poth Hille. That’s why we are the beeswax suppliers customers come back to time and time again.

Are there vegan alternatives to beeswax?

We work with a number of customers looking for vegan waxes. Whether you are making the switch from beeswax or you are looking for an alternative at the beginning of your process, we are here to help. We have formulated some outstanding synthetic beeswaxes that are 100% vegan, allowing you to use them in cruelty-free products.

Beeswax has a number of unique qualities, all of which we have endeavoured to replicate in our vegan beeswax alternative. Many customers struggle to tell the difference – and love the savings that it offers them too!

Over the years, we have built up a reputation as a commercial wax specialist you can trust. We have been in business since 1875, giving us over a century’s worth of experience in the field. All formulations have been carefully chosen by our team, so you can buy your beeswax with total confidence.
