Our team at Waxiwraps are committed to producing a first class product. That means we use only the highest quality ingredients to make our Waxiwraps. Waxiwraps are certified Australian made and owned, by the Australian Made Campaign. We use ethically sourced fabric and ingredients to make our unique blend.
Our beeswax is sourced exclusively from Western Australian hives, which have one of the healthiest honey bee populations in the world. WA’s strict quarantine laws mean that our bees are unaffected by pests and diseases that affect other hives outside of WA, leaving our beeswax untainted by antibiotic or pesticide residue.
Beeswax naturally contains traces of propolis which some people may be allergic to, generally those who are already allergic to honey or other bee products. If you have an allergy to bee stings there is no correlation to a propolis allergy and you shouldn’t have a problem with our products, however if you are unsure please check with your health professional.
At Waxiwraps we exclusively use Dammar resin in our Waxiwrap blend. 95% of the Dammar trees in the world are grown by farmers in South Java and Sumatra, Indonesia. Dammar resin harvesting has given control of the land to the farmers who own it and is a environmentally and economically sustainable alternative to the deforestation of the Javanese Rain-forest. Dammar resin is FDA approved for food storage, as a glazing agent, and as an additive in food. There are no known allergies or adverse reactions to Dammar resin.The Material Safety Data Sheet rates Dammar resin an excellent 1/5 in health issues, the same rating given to salt and beeswax.
Many other beeswax fabric food wraps use Pine resin instead of Dammar resin. Pine resin can often cause allergic reactions in people and has a 2/5 rating by the Material Safety Data Sheet and is regarded as hazardous for import into USA and Canada.
We use a small amount of Australian Jojoba oil in our blend. Jojoba oil is a wax derived from the shrub Simmondsia chinensis. Jojoba oil is often used in cosmetics, skin lotions, and creams.
We use 100% Australian coconut oil.
If you have any concerns about our ingredients, or any allergies, please consult with your health professional before using Waxiwraps.
