Beeswax is a natural emulsifier that infuses skin creams, facial & lip care products with the delicate rich scent of honey while sealing in moisture. It covers skin with a light protective layer that allows the skin to breathe. When beeswax is added to body care products it melds perfectly with oils, butters and water allowing the ingredients to mix perfectly. Not only does beeswax allow oils, butters and water to mix, it adds healing, soothing and deep moisturizing properties to these skin care products.
Moisturizing Benefits Of Beeswax
When the seasons change the body can go through a lot of changes also. Beeswax protects the skin from the drying and damaging effects of these environmental changes. The wax is quite soft & pliable, seals in moisture and keeps harmful pollutants and irritants off of the body & out of your pores. At the same time, it penetrates deeply into the skin for long lasting, penetrating moisture. When skin cells are well moisturized, they plump up creating smooth skin and reducing visible wrinkles.
