Beeskin: the natural and eco-sustainable alternative based on beeswax to plastic film.

Why should an alternative to cellophane be so important?

Well, for those who hadn't seen them yet: images of turtles dying because of the plastic bags swallowed thinking they were jellyfish, gulls with plastic forks in their throats suffering from hunger, the cruel sight of a "mother" whale swimming next to her dead puppy poisoned by microplastic.... Unfortunately, there are countless examples.

Well, for those who hadn't seen them yet: images of turtles dying because of the plastic bags swallowed thinking they were jellyfish, gulls with plastic forks in their throats suffering from hunger, the cruel sight of a "mother" whale swimming next to her dead puppy poisoned by microplastic.... Unfortunately, there are countless examples.

Microplastic is now ubiquitous and is also found in almost all purchased water. A WWF study has shown that we eat about 1 plastic credit card per week! The plastic and plasticizers it contains are known to cause serious diseases such as inapplicability, ADHD and even cancer.

And we can only blame ourselves for what's going on. It's so easy to look away and it's so hard to think of alternatives in the hectic daily life. Fortunately, every little change counts and we should all try to take at least a few small precautions.

The goal of beeskin is therefore to offer a simple and natural alternative to plastic and aluminum films. The testimonies of our grandparents show that packing with beeswax is not a new invention, but has only been forgotten. So let's go back to the old known and reliable systems and start using less plastic – for nature, for the Earth and for our children and grandchildren!

Our 100% natural ingredients

Our products beeskin produced and packaged exclusively in Berlin. We use controlled and certified European raw materials. Because we wanted to create a safe and healthy product, our packaging is also compliant for direct contact with food and printed with low migration inks on certified sustainable paper.

Beeswax - 100% pure beeswax. Our wax is strictly tested for residues of harmful substances and pesticides and comes exclusively from Germany. The propolis contained in beeswax has an antibacterial and antiviral effect. Propolis is collected by bees when flying in trees. European beekeepers remove part of the beeswax to help bees and ensure the health of the colony. New wax is not removed and is never enough to harm bees.

Resin - Tree resin is secreted from trees to protect them from germs, viruses and fungi. We use so-called rosin. When the resin is distilled, and then the trementine oil and liquid evaporate and are filtered, the hard rosin remains. The tree resin we use comes from pine trees, and its wonderful properties help keep food fresh for longer. Did you know that in Greece there is a wine, Retsina, which has its taste from the addition of resin? Resin is also used in the food industry for chewing gum.

Cotton - Our cotton is an organic cotton, which, in addition to printing, is certified organic to the highest standards. We have the fabric produced specifically for us. It is important that the entire chain, including printing, is certified and controlled. In this case, certification means that both social and environmental criteria are strictly controlled and respected. Cotton, for example, is harvested by hand and grown without pesticides. Since the fabric is a 100% non-woven cotton fabric, food can breathe, but it is still protected from drying.

Jojoba oil - Despite the name, jojoba oil is not actually an oil, but a wax with many large properties. At room temperature it is liquid and soft, but becomes hard at low temperatures. Jojoba oil naturally contains a lot of vitamin E – a natural preservative. The oil prevents the wax coating of your cloths from bursting into the refrigerator. Of course we only use certified organic jojoba oil.
