Beeswax is no longer just for candles and furniture wax, it’s time to wake up to the incredible benefits of Beeswax used in natural and organic beeswax creams! Beeswax consists of a mixture of plant wax, pollen and a secretion from the gland on the underside of the bee and is perfectly adapted for use in skin care products.
1) Get natural staying-power
Products that contain Beeswax have incredible natural staying power. The molecular structure of Beeswax makes it ideal for anchoring products to your skin, meaning those with oily complexions don’t have to worry about their foundation slipping and sliding during the day.
Having Beeswax in your skin care products also means you needn’t use synthetic primers that contain pore-blocking silicone that prevents skin from breathing. Your skin will stay looking freshly applied all day with no need for touch-ups.
2) Beat the elements
We’ve all made the mistake of carefully applying mascara, only to realize later that the rainy dash to the bus stop has left unsightly black smudges down our cheeks.
High street water-proof mascaras often contain lash-drying alcohol that can lead to brittleness and breakage, but naturally water-resistant mascara that has beeswax applied on it leaves lashes nourished, as well as protected from the elements.
Beeswax creams act as a natural water resistant barrier to keep your make-up looking polished, even if the weather takes an unexpected turn for the worse!
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.
Some high street make-up products can be extremely drying for the skin, especially those in loose powder forms. Choosing organic beeswax creams helps to keep skin in its natural balance for a healthy, radiant complexion.
4) Gorgeously creamy texture
Adding Beeswax to powder types of make-up such as foundations, eyeshadows and blushers, 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.
