Beeswax is a natural, edible wax produced by honey bees of the genus Apis. It is made white without the use of chemicals/ chlorine. Beeswax carries anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits making it helpful in treating skin irritation. It provides a protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental pollution, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. A good source of this vitamin, beeswax helps exfoliation and can rejuvenate your skin. White beeswax is used as thickeners, emulsifiers, and as stiffening agents in cosmetics and candle making.
