Beeswax acts as a protective layer for the skin providing 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.
It contains Vitamin A which helps support skin cell turnover, is hypo allergenic and promotes wound healing.
The Mayo Clinic recommends lip balm made from beeswax for chapped lip care and prevention.
