Dry, rough skin has met its match thanks to beeswax, the product of hard-working honey bees across the globe. Carefully crafted in honeycomb cells, beeswax is a natural emollient that nourishes, moisturizes and softens skin.
Beeswax in skin care products can draw moisture to the skin and seal it in. At the same time, it helps to form a protective barrier against irritants, allergens and bacteria. Even more impressive, beeswax contains Vitamin A, which may be beneficial in rehydrating dry skin and promoting cell reconstruction.
The most common uses for beeswax include body creams, hand and cuticle salves, lip tints, weatherproofing lip balm, beeswax lip balm and foot repair salve.
