The "emulsions" with beeswax are more difficult to achieve, because a certain percentage of the wax does not succeed in retaining water. This is why the "creams" with bees are eventually separated. In addition, beeswax needs to be heated to more than 61 ° C to work well. We will therefore heat the oily phase at 65 ° C. It will finally be necessary mix At least 10 minutes using an electric mixing foot, even if the "cream" seems beautiful and ready. In fact, beeswax is not an emulsifier and does not allow the creation of stable emulsions. It is advisable to add cetyl alcohol for better stability.
