INCI Cera Alba (Bees Wax)
By producing honey, hard-working bees give us a precious ingredient - beeswax. It has been used by man for tousend years in many areas of our lives.
It is estimated that 3.5 kg of honey is needed for 1 kg of beeswax!
What does beeswax contain and how does it work?
alcohols and fatty acids prevent for water loss and lubricate the skin;
palmitic acid by creating a thin protective layer protects the skin against drying, making it soft and smooth;
chrysin has an antibacterial effect;
esters and beta-carotene have a regenerating and antioxidant effect;
flavonoids have anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties;
squalene protects the skin against microbes;
vitamin A stimulates cell division;
That' s why Beeswax is used in the production of creams, dermatological ointments against psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis.
Thanks to all these valuable properties, Beeswax gives the skin a fresh and healthy look.
