INGREDIENTS​

Cotton

For our wraps we only use 100% certified cotton GOTS .

The GOTS is recognized as the most important standard for the sustainable production of textile products made with natural fibers from organic farming such as organic cotton or organic wool.

Cotton is one of the fabrics for which many pesticides are used, with the GOTS certification we guarantee the absence of the latter and this allows us to guarantee our customers a safe and eco-friendly product.
The Global Organic Textile Standard was developed by leading international organizations in organic agriculture in order to guarantee the consumer that organic textile products are obtained in compliance with stringent environmental and social criteria applied at all levels of production, from the collection in the field of natural fibers to the subsequent manufacturing stages, up to the labeling of the finished product.

Allergens

More and more frequently we are asked about the ingredients used in the production of our Beeco Wraps, and we therefore find it right to give you more information about them, so that you can be informed before you buy them for yourself and your family.
Below you will find the four simple ingredients we use and also the reasons why we have chosen them.
If you have any doubts about your allergies, we recommend that you discuss them with your doctor.

Qui sotto troverete i quattro semplici ingredienti che utilizziamo e anche i motivi per cui li abbiamo scelti.

In caso abbiate dei dubbi riguardo a delle vostre allergie, vi consigliamo di parlarne con il vostro medico.

Beeswax

We use 100% pure operculum beeswax.
Our wax is melted, melted and sterelized in Sementin.
This ensures that the wax meets the standards for use in contact with food.
As with all beeswaxes, there is a naturally occurring propolis component. Some people may be allergic to propolis, usually those who are already allergic to honey or other bee products.
However, allergies from bee stings and propolis allergies are not related to each other.
If you are allergic to propolis, we do not recommend that you buy our wraps without first consulting your doctor.

Damar resin/damar rubber

Damar resin makes our waxed sheets particularly unique compared to competitors or DIY solutions.
Beeco wraps are completely free of pine resin, also known as rosin, or pine gum. This resin (often used in the production of waxed sheets) is not recommended for food use in Switzerland.
We would have liked to use a local resin such as pine resin in order to have a product as local as possible but we believe that the safety of our consumers is more important and by using damar resin we can guarantee a product that is certified for food use and 100% safe as there are no known allergies or adverse reactions to this resin and it is approved as a food additive.
Damar resin (the name is a Malaysian word meaning “resin torch”) is a natural resin of vegetable origin, obtained from trees of the Dipterocarpaceae family in India, East Asia and New Zealand.
It has the appearance of pale ivory yellow granules, tender and crumbly, with a characteristic smell.
95% of the Dammar trees on the land are grown sustainably by agroforestry farmers in southern Java and Sumatra, Indonesia. Dammar resin harvesting has become an extraordinary alternative to deforestation, and this industrial practice is responsible for keeping most of Javanese rainforests alive and has given control of the land to the farmers who own it.

Coconut oil

Our coconut oil is organic.
The oil is extracted by pressing the copra, dried to reduce the moisture content. The yield is particularly high as the dried copra contains 60 to 67% oil.
Coconut oil is used to reduce the melting point, so it is easier to wrap the food. It also makes the wraps slightly stickier and therefore helps Beeco Wraps to better adapt to your food.

Certifications
