Beeswax: what is it, how do we use it, what are its benefits?

Beeswax is a versatile ingredient used in products ranging from candles to skincare, and even as an alternative to plastic wrap. It is a brittle, tasteless, and colourless mass used by bees to create the honeycomb. Beeswax is considered an extremely sustainable ingredient for many products, but that depends entirely on how one procures their beeswax. Our team at Satliva has searched the country for only the best, most ethical producers of beeswax, who have managed to create a system that meets their demand without harming any bees or burdening their delicate ecosystem. Let’s have a look at how we use our beeswax and its innumerable benefits.

The benefits of beeswax & why we use it

There are nearly endless benefits associated with beeswax, from benefits pertaining to the betterment of the world, to benefits pertaining to your skin. Let's have a look at a few -

  • It contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties: Beeswax products are used to soothe inflamed and irritated skin. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties make it an excellent ingredient used to fight off bacterial skin infections and various inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. The Mango Rosemary Face Cream is ideal to access these unique properties of beeswax.

  • It protects skin from harsh UV-rays & signs of ageing: Beeswax is naturally high in Vitamin A which is known to defend the skin against UV-rays. It also assists the body in the process of healing wounds, promoting skin elasticity, reducing dark spots, and reducing or preventing wrinkles. A cream containing beeswax is the simplest solution to all these problems, and the Mango Lavender Face Cream is that perfect solution!

  • It promotes a chemical free & sustainable lifestyle: Beeswax is naturally toxin-free, and within the current need for a sustainable lifestyle, beeswax comes out on top in nearly every parameter.
