Anti-Aging Effects of Beeswax
Beeswax has been shown to lower cholesterol, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and treat digestive ailments. It’s also been proven to protect liver health because of its antioxidant effects.
Beeswax is natural and non-toxic and helps protect skin from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. Unlike yucky, unsustainable petroleum, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores. Meanwhile, like honey, beeswax has antibacterial properties, helping to keep skin clean and reducing the risks of contamination in the formula itself.
In fact, a 2005 study found that a honey/beeswax mixture inhibited the growth of bacteria and fungus, making it a potential treatment for diaper rash and other bacterial skin conditions. And when you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time. Beeswax is also a wonderful sources of Vitamin A and helps with cell turnover and reconstruction. Not to mention it naturally smells divine!
