Uses of Beeswax in Skin Care

Beeswax has been used topically on the skin since ancient Egypt for a variety of reasons. 

Today, beeswax can be found in a variety of goods, including: 

cosmetics, sunscreen, and baby items 

So, what makes it so beneficial to the skin and how can you utilise it? 

What exactly is beeswax? 

Beeswax, simply put, is a wax produced by bees. To preserve the colony’s honey, worker bees make a honeycomb out of this wax. 

Many beeswax-based beauty products are EWG-certified. This indicates that a product has been verified by the Environmental Working Group to provide customers with a better understanding of its constituents. 

For chapped lips, use beeswax. 

Try beeswax the next time your lips are chapped. You can buy a ready-made one.
