What is Beeswax Wrap?

You may have read that we have suggested using beeswax wrap.  You probably then wondered what this is and where to get it.

Beeswax wrap is a reusable alternative to plastic wrap or foil for food storage.

Typically, it’s made from bee’s wax, jojoba oil, mastic resin, and cotton.

It is washable, made from natural ingredients – so it is non-toxic, has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and compostable.

You can wrap your half eaten or half cut fruit in it, bowls and place them in the fridge to make sure none of your food goes to waste and reduce your single use plastic footprint.

Best of all, we can find some here in Cairo, 100% Egyptian made!
