Whole body skin care cream for men & women made from Natural organic Honey bee colony. Beeswax can create a protective layer on the skin. It’s also a humectant, which means that it attracts water. Both of these qualities can help the skin stay hydrated. Beeswax is also a natural exfoliator, ideal for sloughing away dead skin cells.
- For chapped lips
Beeswax is a common ingredient in lip balms—especially those of the homemade variety
- To help with eczema
Beeswax is also anti-inflammatory, so it can be good for skin conditions like eczema. Dr. Hadley King, dermatologist, points to a small 2003 study. “[It] showed that daily application of a mixture of bee’s wax, raw honey and olive oil to the skin of people with eczema or psoriasis resulted in significant improvement after two weeks,” she says.
- To help with acne
“Beeswax has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which helps to fight conditions such as acne and eczema. It calms the skin without clogging your pores,” says Adriana Martino, esthetician and co-founder of Skinney Medspa.
- For dry skin
Martino also recommends products with beeswax to people with dry skin, “especially during the cold, harsh winter months,” because, obviously, skin is more prone to dryness then. “Beeswax is an effective occlusive, which means that it can create a protective layer on the skin, sealing in moisture. It also has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, which can help protect the skin as well,” Hadley adds.
- For fine lines and wrinkles
Beeswax contains vitamin A aplenty, so it can help with fine lines and wrinkles, Martino says. Retinol products—which help speed cell turnover and stimulate collagen production—are all derived from vitamin A.
- For sensitive skin
“A 2018 study concluded that bee’s wax, as well as other ‘botanical anti-inflammatories’ were effective for managing sensitive skin and even outperformed skincare products with synthetic ingredients,” Hadley says. Martino also recommends products containing beeswax for people with sensitive skin because of their anti-inflammatory and humectant properties.
- To get rid of flyaways
“If you have hair that can be difficult to manage, use products with beeswax—or just pure beeswax to smooth flyaways and keep your hairstyles in place,” Zeena Alli, stylist at Mizu Louis Licari, says. Warm it up in your fingers before applying.
- To moisturize hair
All the reasons that make beeswax a stellar moisturizer for your skin also make it great for your hair. “It’s also great to use when straightening your hair, especially if you have natural hair,” Alli says.
- To hide split ends
I once went an entire year without cutting my hair, so my split ends were bad. I used just about every product on the market instead of, you know, just booking a hair appointment. Turns out, beeswax would have been an effective option for making them look less apparent. “If you have split ends you can also use beeswax to seal and hide those split ends before you eventually need to cut them off,” – feedback from a regular user of bee wax cream
- To soothe your scalp
Thanks to the aforementioned anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties of beeswax, it can also be used to soothe scalps suffering from eczema, psoriasis, or dandruff. “Massage the beeswax into your scalp to help calm and soothe these conditions,”
