Beeswax

[ Scientific name —Cera Alba ]

Beeswax is a fatty substance that can create a protective layer on the skin. It's also an humectant, which means that it attracts water. Both of these qualities can help the skin stay hydrated and moisturized. Beeswax is also a natural exfoliator, ideal for sloughing away dead skin cells. Unlike other types of wax (petroleum waxes like paraffin or petroleum jelly) it does not clog pores.
