beeskin beeswax wraps
Did you know?
Beeswax wraps are not a new invention but were used to store food already generations before us, long before plastic foil existed. beeswax wraps are purely natural. At the end of their life time they can simply be disposed on the compost, or you can use beeswax wraps as a healthy firestarter for the fireplace or barbecue.
The secret of beeskin beeswax wraps?
Most food will spoil quickly if wrapped in plastic. The reason is the condensation liquid which will form, providing ground for growing bacteria. Some food spoils quicker than other, like mushrooms or bread for instance. The ingredients used in beeskin are naturally antibacterial and antifungal. Our beeswax wraps let food breathe, but at the same time protect it from drying out. Try wrapping bread or an entire lettuce. Even cheese or fresh berries stay fresh longer when wrapped in beeskin
Not all beeswax wraps are the same.
For a sustainable product, both the raw materials and the production process should be sustainable. At least in our opinion. Once something comes into direct contact with food, you should pay close attention to the ingredients used. Pesticides in wax, heavy metals in printing and mineral oil in packaging are not to be found in beeskin. From the cultivation of the cotton to the printing, production and packaging in Berlin, beeskin products are constantly monitored by Ecocert and awarded the GOTS organic seal.

What makes beeskin so special?
We have worked a long time on the right wax mixture and the ratio of the individual raw materials. Equally important is the quality and structure of the fabric used. That's why we can give you the beeskin 1-year guarantee (more information here). We have built up a close relationship with our suppliers and can therefore purchase high quality raw materials. It is important to us that beeswax wraps are not exclusively a product for the "money makers". This is why we are happy to pass on the better prices, which we get by buying large quantities of raw materials, to our customers.
Even if each of us save s only a little bit of plastic, it all adds up to tons. All beeskins are made in Berlin, checked and packed by hand and then shipped directly from our production site. So we have control over every step of the production and we can make sure that you get a beeskin to your full satisfaction.
Sustainable beeskin products
The cost of quick, cheap and easy to take care of.
In a modern world everything needs to be quick, cheap and easy to take care of. But what are the real costs for these kind of products? Unfortunately, that means that often times every day products are single use and made of cheap, non-lasting materials which can cause severe health problems. Plastic components are linked to severe health issues such as ADHD, infertility and even cancer. Likewise, overpriced, sustainable and healthy products have become unaffordable for many.
That is why we have decided to expand our product range. We want to offer high quality products at an affordable price. We work with small and large suppliers who share our values and beliefs. If we all pull together we can make a difference.
We hand selected products and we developed products ourselves we truly believe in and which we use at home ourselves. Every single item has been tested by us and our families and found to be very good. These products are not only sustainable but also offer added value in everyday life. Give it a try yourself.

Soul and body care by beeskin
Mirror of the soul
Did you know that our skin is the biggest organ of our body? It is a rather impressive organ if you consider that it can do so much: it breathes, it absorbs, it detoxify and even stores important nutrients. The scary part is that the average person uses up to 10 cosmetic products a day, and ingests up to 130 toxins with them (daily!). Some of these toxins even enter the bloodstream. Some are carcinogenic substances such as PEGs, parabens and mineral oils. These are often found in conventional cosmetics.
In addition, microplastic particles are used in conventional tooth paste, peelings and makeup. As we know, microplastics are a big problem, among other things for our oceans and fish. None of these toxins and plastic particles are found in natural cosmetics - luckily.
Natural cosmetics instead have been proven to be better tolerated by the skin. Even children's sensitive skin is gently cared for and cleansed by the power of plants and is not irritated by the absence of synthetic fragrances.
Tina our founder is a certified phytologist (herbal medicine). In collaboration with a small laboratory outside of Berlin, she has developed recipes that draw on the treasures of nature. Because quite often everything we need is right in front of us and does not have to be chemically produced.
The body - soul connection
Since we have made our own experiences with stress, sicknesses and aches and pains, we developed our own products and would like to share them with you.
