Beeswax is produced from the wax glands of the female worker honey bee, with the  purpose of  constructing the honeycomb. It’s a non toxic, complex, mixture of organic elements, mainly :

  • esters (mainly myricyl palmitate) [they contribute to a quicker application and absorption of the product]
  • fatty acids [nourishing, moisturizing, demulcent with also strong antioxidant properties, they replenish skin’s lipids]
  • hydrocarbons

It’s also rich in proteins, vitamin A and minerals. It has antiphlogistic, anetic/calmative, antibacterial merits. It nourishes cells and protects skin from environmental hazards, without causing skin irritations or clogging skin’s pores.  It doesn’t go off, so it doesn’t need preservatives.

When applied,it creates a protective barrier lipoid hymen that regulates moisture and stabilizes oil, blocking acid elements to penetrate. At the same time, it allows the nutrient elements of beeswax ointment to act lengthily, while the skin is hydrating and breathing freely. 

Beeswax integrates harmonically to cosmetics because of the esters that it contains, which is an ingredient both of the beeswax and the human skin.It’s compatibility with the human skin renders the products that contain beeswax more compatible, allowing their absorption by the skin to a greater extend.For this reason, as well as by virtue of the curative, demulcent, anetic/calmative and antiseptic action of beeswax, a lot of cosmetics of face and body contain it in among their ingredients.

According to Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), "Even a small amount shows results”.

Warning
Pure beeswax may contain traces of propolis.  Please test for propolis contact allergy before application.
