The A to Z of Natural Beauty is a series where we highlight natural beauty ingredients and give you the lowdown on why they’re just so good. In this edition, we highlight beeswax and why it’s a natural beauty favourite.

Alternative names: Beeswax, Cera Alba

Derived from bee secretions, beeswax has been recorded in use for thousands of years, and it’s relevance to natural beauty is still popular today.

Benefits

  • Beeswax locks in hydration and forms a protective film over the skin. It is a humectant, meaning it attracts water. This is why you’ll find beeswax as an ingredient for natural lip balms because it retains moisture.
  • It also maintains the skin’s elasticity and suppleness because it’s rich in Vitamin A.
  • Beeswax protects the skin against harsh environmental elements.
