How do BeeBee wraps work?

Are BeeBee wraps safe?
All four of the ingredients used to make our beeswax wraps are safe to be used with food. Please do not use if you have any allergies to any of the ingredients.
Can you wrap meat or fish in BeeBee wraps?
Since we recommend the wraps to be washed in cold water, we don't recommend them to be used directly on raw meat or fish just to be safe. What you could do instead though, is store raw meat or fish in a bowl and cover it with a wrap.
Will the smell of certain foods stay on the wrap forever?
Food like onions and smelly cheeses can leave their scent on the wraps, so some people like to commit one wrap to certain foods. Alternatively, you can place your pungent food in a bowl and cover the top with a wrap to avoid the food touching the wrap.
Do BeeBee wraps smell?
The BeeBee fragrance is direct from the hive itself and, like the colour of the wax, changes depending on where the bees have foraged. Some people are sensitive to the scent however it won't affect your food and will diminish with washing.
Who makes BeeBee beeswax wraps?

How do I take care of my BeeBee wrap?
Either give them a wipe down or wash them in cold water with eco-friendly soap and then just drip dry. Some foods might stain your BeeBee Wrap adding to its personality! However, if you prefer not to stain it avoid direct contact with foods that would typically stain clothes on contact, for example, tomatoes, blackcurrants, beetroot etc.
Do BeeBee wraps harm bees?
Our beeswax is sourced from British bees whose keepers adhere to the Bee Farmers Association’s Welfare Code of Conduct supporting robust pollination for our local food system. Bees produce beeswax to store honey and our beekeepers only take the excess honey. Bees will always make honey regardless of how much they need and already have, so taking the excess beeswax with that honey is not detrimental to the hive. However, we completely understand that not everyone is comfortable with using bee-related materials, so please choose the plant based/vegan option.
Are BeeBee wraps vegan?
The Beeswax range of wraps are not vegan because they contain beeswax, If you would like a vegan wrap please choose the plant based/vegan option.
