Beeswax has been used in skincare for millennia. This is one of the most robust materials for beauty and health — and also one of the most beneficial. According to Wellness Mama, the uses are endless — and make an excellent addition to cosmetic products, for many reasons.
- When used in lotions and creams, beeswax creates a barrier which helps to seal moisture into the skin. This is especially beneficial in lip chap during the dry winter months.
- This barrier also helps to protect the skin from environmental toxins and irritants.
- Unlike petroleum jelly, which is used in a large variety of beauty products, beeswax will not “suffocate” the skin, but rather, allow it to breathe while still providing a protective barrier.
- Beeswax helps to thicken homemade cosmetics and lotions because it is solid at room temperature and has a relatively high melting point of 147 degrees Fahrenheit. This is especially helpful in recipes that include high amounts of coconut oil, which has a low melting point, or other oils that are liquid at room temperature.
- Beeswax also has Vitamin A, which improves hydration to the skin and promotes cell regeneration.
