Beeswax is credited with anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antioxidant, anti-bactericidal, germicidal, and skin-softening and elasticity enhancing properties. Secreted by the bees and deposited onto honeycombs, it is obtained purely by filtration and without any harm to the bees! Used for centuries, it is antiseptic and wound healing and gives protective emollient to our skin balms and Lip Silk.
