The health benefits of beeswax for the skin are almost too many to count, one of the best benefits of using beeswax on the skin is the moisturizing and the softening effect. Unlike the artificial and often petroleum based chemicals added to many moisturisers and skin care lotions to aid in absorption, beeswax contains Vitamin A and provides long-term moisturising, actually locking moisture into the skin.
Besides offering your skin a natural moisture and glow, the anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties of bees wax can actually soothe easily irritated skin, making it one of the best skin care ingredients for those who suffer from allergies or other skin problems like rosacea or eczema. When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. This is one of the reasons beeswax is often used in lip balms. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesnt “suffocate” the skin, and wont clog pores.
- Protective: · Antibacterial: Like honey, beeswax has antibacterial properties, helping keep skin clean. A 2005 study found that a honey/beeswax mixture inhibited the growth of bacteria and fungus.
- Humectant: Some ingredients “attract” water, and beeswax is one of them. When you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time.
- Vitamin A: A good source of this vitamin, beeswax helps support cell turnover and reconstruction.
