It is controversial to be using beeswax in our products, but this ingredient has so many amazing benefits that is is hard to find a vegan equivalent.
We are looking at replacing natural beeswax with a vegan alternative but until I am 100% satisfied our products will stay this way.
Again, beeswax is an ingredient that, due to its power, has been able to travel through time. In Ancient Egypt, it was used during the embalming process, as a way to seal the coffin to make it airtight or to preserve papyrus.
It was later used by jewellers and artisans to create moulds that they would use to create various objects and was also used by healers who would use beeswax in their prescriptions.
Want to hear about the long list of benefits of beeswax? Yes? Then get ready!
It has antibacterial and antiseptic properties meaning it can help with a condition such as eczema.
It is hypoallergenic so even if you have sensitive skin you should be able to use Beeswax without having to worry.
It is also anti-fungal, waterproof and it never goes bad due to its content in propolis.
It is an amazing moisturiser, creating a protective barrier that keeps the moisture in whilst allowing the skin to breathe – it does not clog the pores.
This is a great way to keep your skin protected from environmental damages such as pollution.
It is amazing to soothe irritated skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and vitamin A. Both promoting healing of the skin and regeneration of the cells.
Now if that wasn’t enough, it is also great at waxing facial hair due to its hard texture. So if you want to make a fashion statement, you have found your ingredient.
