Do some searches on google and you should be able to find some recipes. Both those ingredients together make an emulsifier - ewax itself is made up of a combination of ingredients.

Beeswax and borax is more stable for creams, though, which are water in oil emulsions (more oil that water). It won't be quite as stable in a lotion, which is an oil in water emulsion.

Snowdrift has a great article on emulsions - beeswax/borax is mentioned in the third column http://www.snowdriftfarm.com/what_is_hlb.html

And here are some example cream recipes
