Fragen und Antworten
Are the beeswax wraps approved for use with food?
Yes, our beeswax wipes are regularly tested by an international food laboratory. Therefore, we can assure you that our wipes are approved for food packaging according to European guidelines.
Why don't you use jojoba oil or other oils?
Jojoba oil shows toxic effects in intestinal cells in animal studies, therefore the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment advises against using this oil in beeswax cloths. Almost all other oils, especially domestic ones such as rapeseed oil or sunflower oil, go rancid very quickly and the beeswax cloth would smell unpleasant after a very short time. This process is also called oxidation and cannot be stopped. We have simply found a way to do without any oils completely and still produce very supple beeswax cloths. Thus, we are compliant with the latest recommendation of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment and do not have to worry if future tests confirm the suspicion of intestinal cell damage. We also see the risk rather as low, but fewer ingredients are anyway more sympathetic and besides, we can do without an ingredient that hardly occurs regionally.

Where does your cotton come from?
From Turkey. In addition, all cotton fabrics are certified according to one of the highest standards for textiles and thus the cotton is not only "BIO" but it is among other things also social standards are ensured. Similar to Fairtrade products, only for cotton.
Where does your beeswax come from?
It depends... Our beeswax from controlled organic cultivation (kba, often also not correctly called "BIO beeswax") from Eastern Europe, but is cleaned and pastilled in Germany. The conventional beeswax varies depending on the batch. On request, we write you what we currently have there.
Do you produce by hand or with a machine?
This question has already caused many discussions internally. Another question: when a bag is sewn with a sewing machine, is that handwork, or is that machine-made? Exactly the same applies to our production. As you can see on our image video, we have machines that help us a lot in the production. However, the whole thing is still connected with a lot of manual work. So everyone must answer this question for themselves ;-)
