beeswax

Our beeswax is pure, filtered, cosmetic grade beeswax from Cascadian beekeepers.

Beeswax contains wax esters that are similar to that of the skin's sebum, making it an excellent emulsifier for our cream formulas. Beeswax forms a protective layer on the skin that protects against irritants and aids in moisture retention while still allowing the skin to "breathe."1 Beeswax is also a humectant, which means that it attracts and retains water to the surface of the skin, making it an excellent at promoting moisturized, well-nourished skin.
