Beeswax wraps were designed with a key objective in mind: to keep food fresher for longer. Their purpose is to tackle the prevalent issue of food waste in households and reduce what is often referred to as "food loss."
Curious about how beeswax wraps aid in prolonging the freshness of your food?
It's all about their unique characteristics, which stem from their individual ingredients. Beeswax wraps, sometimes referred to as beeswax wraps due to their primary component, have:
- Beeswax: This lends preservative, antibacterial, and antifungal properties to the wraps, as well as water resistance. Beeswax-coated cloth was often used by our ancestors for food storage.
- Natural Resin: It imparts the ability to maintain shape, hardness, and natural stickiness to the wraps. Like beeswax, resin also has antibacterial and antifungal properties.
- Jojoba Oil: This crucial ingredient provides flexibility to the wraps. Only jojoba oil is used in BajaBee wraps due to its high stability against oxidation and rancidity.
These three ingredients are melted together to form a liquid mixture that is then applied to 100% cotton fabric.
We use fabric certified by STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® for our wraps. This certification, awarded by the OEKO-TEX® Association, signifies that the fabric has passed tests for over 100 parameters pertinent to human health. Furthermore, the packaging we use for our beeswax wraps is designed with a "non-stick" feature to prevent any damage or stickiness when displayed in stores. It is constructed from recycled paper, aligning with our sustainability principles.
