Beeswax is an ideal beauty ingredient, due to it’s multi-functioning natural purposes. It is commonly used in primers, foundations, lip balms, lipsticks, facial and body care products.
Beeswax is a natural emulsifier that is an emollient, which protects the skin from free radicals by creating a protective barrier on the skin. The benefit of the beeswax coated layer on your skin is a fantastic additional to an all natural skin care product because it seals in the vitamins and minerals from the ingredients in the skincare product. For example, the Belle ou Beau Lotion Bars will have all the natural vitamins and minerals working through your skin, whilst being retained by the protective layer of beeswax. This process aids sealing in moisture, improving the skin’s texture and appearance. Beeswax is great for waterproofing, due to the skin shielding property. Vitamin A in beeswax helps to hydrate the skin without blocking the pores, which is a very appealing element for people like me, who have oily skin or people who have combination skin. Vitamin A promotes cell regeneration and it softens the skin, a key vitamin for dry or rough skin. Beeswax is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral, perfect throughout the year, in particular the colder months.
