Organic Beeswax is the emulsifier that brings MANDA Organic Sun Paste together. Produced by the noble worker bee, beeswax is the substance you’ll find lining the structure of the honeycomb. Bees are vital to the health of our ecosystem, as they are responsible for sustaining one-third of the food we eat.
An added bonus? Beeswax has amazing skin health properties! That’s why we’re breaking down the top 6 benefits of beeswax and why it’s one of MANDA’s essential ingredients.
#1: Breathe Easy
The consistency of beeswax acts as a protective barrier. When applied to the skin or combined with other skin care ingredients, it has the ability to block out irritants while allowing the skin to breathe (it won’t clog pores).
Benefit #2: Anti-inflammatory, Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral
Beeswax contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. These qualities offer the perfect balance of nourishment to calm the skin, keep it clear and bacteria free, heal wounds and fight infection.
Benefit #3: Vitamin A
Beeswax contains Vitamin A, which helps protect skin cells from environmental irritants while helping to regulate skin regeneration. If you suffer from dry skin itchiness, dermatitis or eczema, beeswax helps heal these conditions while at the same time providing itch relief.
Benefit #4: Humectant
Beeswax has the ability to draw and retain water, keeping your skin plump, nourished, and hydrated.
Benefit #5: Hypoallergenic
If you have sensitive skin, beeswax might be your skin solution.
With anti-allergenic properties, those with sensitive skin can easily tolerate it.
Benefit #6: Aromatic
Aside from beeswax containing amazing skin health properties, another benefit is that it has a sweet and subtle fragrance. There’s nothing like a skin care ingredient that connects us to nature and smells good!
