Cera Bellina Wax is a hydrophilic derivative of beeswax with excellent oil gelling properties. Although Cera Bellina is hydrophilic its solubility is similar to that of beeswax. The addition of Cera Bellina wax helps give any lip balm, lotion bar, or emulsion a smooth and luxurious texture. The exceptional gelling capabilities of this wax make it simple to gel oils or butters while using a low wax concentration. Because of its ability to inhibit the crystallization of oils Cera Bellina Wax also works well as a co-emusifier or thickener in lotion formulations as well as serums.

I heard about this and thought that could work great at gelling my face serum I make for friends and family, which is all oils. Wow, this made my serum feel absolutely wonderful. It thickened it into a smooth, creamy, gel type texture without leaving that slick wax coating you would get with regular bees wax pellets. And it glides and spreads into the skin easily now. Everyone is in love with the change! Especially me.
I used this to make a oily gelled butter for my skin and hair. It turned out wonderful. It made it nice and smooth. I made it with the Cera Bellina and without. Both were good but the one will Cera Bellina had a better feel. I'm so glad that Brambleberry sells a smaller size because a little goes a long way.
I really love the difference this makes in my lip balms! I have a silly question though. Would this be considered natural? I don't advertise my products as all natural but it's something always asked. I just want to make sure I know the proper answer. Thank you!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Crystal! I'm so glad you love our Cera Bellina Wax in your lip balms! While this wax is a derivative of beeswax, it would not be considered all natural. Though, the word 'natural' is not well regulated or defined in the soap and cosmetic industry. This means that technically someone could say it is.
