Beeswax is an excellent emollient and provides non-occlusive skin protection, meaning that it forms a protective yet breathable network on the skins surface which helps to limit moisture loss. It is non-allergic, and has elastic and water repellent properties which allows it to sustain sunscreen action and provides greater permanence on skin or lip surfaces.
Beeswax locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin from damaging environmental factors. It is a natural nourishing moisturiser and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and germicidal antioxidant properties.
The Mayo Clinic recommends lip balm made from beeswax for chapped lip care and prevention.
Sweet Almond Oil
Expressed from the nut kernels of the plant sweet almond oil is an emollient, skin softener and conditioner which helps’ skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture.
