Beeswax Benefits

Benefits of Beeswax

Beeswax benefits are many.  It is an excellent addition into body care products, from massage wax, to moisturising lotions, lip balms and deodorants.

Beeswax

Beeswax creates a barrier for the skin which helps to seal in moisture.  When used in lotions and creams this is especially beneficial during the dry winter months.  It acts as both an emollient, soothing and softening skin, and a humectant, attracting water and helping to absorb it in the skin.

This barrier may also help protect the skin from environmental toxins and irritants.   Beeswax will allow the skin to breathe while still providing a protective barrier.

It has the quality to thicken balms and lotions because it is solid at room temperature.  This is helpful in recipes that include high amounts of oil which are liquid at room temperature.

Beeswax also has vitamin A, which improves hydration to the skin and promotes cell regeneration.

It’s antibacterial and antimicrobial actions may help heal open wounds, and it’s also thought to be effective in healing bruises, inflammation and burns, which make it an excellent ingredient in  salves.
