Beeswax is often used in lip balms and soap making.
In cosmetics, it is used as a thickener, emulsifier and stiffening agent in creams, lotions, lipsticks, etc. Beeswax has emollient, soothing and softening properties and helps the skin retain moisture. This is because beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect your skin from the environment, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. This is one of the reasons beeswax is often used in lip balms.
Beeswax has antibacterial properties, helping keep skin clean and reducing the risks of contamination in the formula itself.
