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 "creams" in bees are eventually separated. In addition, beeswax needs to be heated by more than 61 degrees C to work well. We will therefore heat the oily phase at 65 degrees C. It will finally be necessary to brew at least 10 minutes using an electric mixer, 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 it with cetyl alcohol for better stability.
