Beeswax skin care: 5 beauty benefits of Beeswax

Beeswax is no longer just for candles and furniture wax, it’s time to wake up to the incredible benefits of Beeswax in natural skin care, suncreen and organic make-up products like foundation, mascara and lipstick.

Beeswax is a remarkable natural ingredient which is perfectly adapted for use in natural make-up and skin care products.

 

Benefits of Beeswax for skin

Beeswax has a soft, creamy texture that’s non-pore clogging and suitable for every type of skin.

A natural wax that’s well tolerated and has a low rate of allergic reactions, benefits of using Beeswax skin care include:

 

1) Natural staying power

The molecular structure of Beeswax makes it ideal for anchoring make-up products and balms to your skin, meaning you can rely on it to deliver long-lasting benefits. 

Having Beeswax in your make-up and skin care also means you needn’t use products that contain pore-blocking silicone which prevents skin from breathing.

Your complexion will stay looking fresh all day with no need for touch-ups.


2) Water resistance

Our naturally water-resistant mascara contains organic Beeswax to protect lashes from raindrops and tears. It has the added benefit of nourishing the lashes, rather than leaving them brittle as some synthetic mascaras can do.

3) Lock in skin’s hydration

Not only does Beeswax help to keep water out, it also helps keep water in. By acting as a protective, breathable layer on the skin’s surface, Beeswax helps to lock in moisture for soft, supple, hydrated skin.

Choosing organic make-up and skin care that contains Beeswax helps to keep skin in its natural balance for a healthy, radiant complexion.

We particularly love Beeswax in our nourishing balms - scroll down for more about them! 

4) Gorgeously creamy texture

Adding Beeswax to products such foundations gives these formulas a wonderfully creamy texture.

This means that unlike some mainstream powders, these products won’t cling, crease or accentuate dry patches on the skin, giving a smooth finish with a dewy glow.

The creamy texture of make-up products containing Beeswax makes them very easy to apply and to get your desired even coverage.

This natural ingredient makes our make-up products ideal for those with dry, sensitive skin who need light, non-irritating formulas that also allow the skin to breathe.

5) Protect against environmental damage

The natural barrier properties of Beeswax also help to protect the skin from environmental damage, such as traffic pollution and cigarette smoke.

When these forms of pollution touch the skin, they can spawn damaging free-radicals, which are known to be a factor in causing premature skin ageing.

Applying make-up products that contain Beeswax forms a protective layer on the skin’s surface, preventing pollution from touching the skin which helps to stop the formation of skin-ageing free radicals.

This preventative layer of Beeswax is particularly good as it doesn’t block the pores and won’t stop the skin from being able to breathe.
