There are 3 main types of Beeswax: Yellow, White, and Absolute. Yellow Beeswax is the natural, unrefined, and raw wax derived directly from the honeycomb, which is what we use at Daisy Blue. YAY! White Beeswax is the result of Yellow Beeswax undergoing a filtering/purifying/bleaching process. YUCK! Beeswax Absolute is the result of treating Yellow Beeswax with Alcohol. Double YUCK!!
We love Natural Beeswax because it is a natural gift from Mother Nature and the honeybees of course!
Why is beeswax good for your skin?
Beeswax is an effective occlusive, which means that it can create a protective layer on the skin, helping your skin to retain its own moisture. It also has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, which can help protect the skin, too!
