The many benefits of beeswax for skin make it a powerful ingredient in several of HollyBeth Organic’s products. What exactly is beeswax? Beeswax is naturally secreted by honey bees and used to line the inside of the hive to create honeycombs for honey storage. When beekeepers remove the honeycombs from the hive, the wax is cut away in the process of harvesting the honey.
HollyBeth uses beeswax to bring the rich, velvety thickness to her cream products, including her Eye Cream, Rose Geranium Moisturizer, Skin Therapy, Citrus Cream, and Body Balm. Beeswax provides a base for these luscious balms to keep their malleable structure.
The Benefits of Beeswax for Skin
Beeswax is a vitamin-rich, natural hydrator. It helps the skin lock in moisture while protecting it from the outside elements. Packed with Vitamin A and fatty acids, beeswax promotes the restoration of skin cells and a healthy, glowing complexion. Prone to dry skin or acne? Beeswax contains anti-inflammatory, skin soothing properties that help clean and soften the skin to promote healing and maintain balance.
Beeswax can do it all. We owe a great big thank you to those hard working honey bees!
