Beeswax is another amazing gift from Mother Nature that cannot be surpassed by anything produced in a laboratory (no offense to scientists... we love scientists). Below you will find several good reasons to buy beeswax cosmetics and other beeswax beauty products.
Silicone is one of the worst things you can put on your skin. It blocks your pores and does not allow your skin to "breathe," If your skin can't breathe, you'll have trouble getting rid of toxins and bacteria that attack it. Beeswax, on the other hand, allows your skin to breath naturally but still get the same "staying power" you get from silicone. Be careful you are buying a beeswax product that does not contain a type of silicone. If you check your ingredient label, look for any ingredient that ends in "cone" or "siloxane," such as dimethicone and or cyclopentasiloxane.
You go out to a movie on a date and find yourself crying during a sentimental scene. Later, after the movie, you find a horrifying surprise when you look in the mirror... your supposedly waterproof mascara has smudged and streaked and you look like a raccoon wearing facial war paint!
Don't worry, there's an easy solution to avoid these types of embarrassing situations in the future. Buy mascara containing beeswax!
The highest paid cosmetic scientists have not been able to create a synthetic product that is more reliably water resistant than beeswax.
Lip Balms and lipstick containing beeswax as a base makes your lips soft and supple. It also helps keep your lips from drying out and becoming chapped, especially if you are exposed to harsh weather elements like wild wind and freezing cold temperatures.
Beewax lotions can also help keep your face, hands, arms, feet, and legs from drying out.
Bees are rapidly dwindling worldwide and the race is on to protect the bees we have left and help them reproduce and thrive. Beekeepers play a crucial role in this goal.
Selling natural beeswax is a nice secondary income for beekeepers. Therefore, if you buy beeswax beauty products, you can feel good about contributing to the livelihood of beekeepers and helping to keep our remaining bee populations viable!
Did you know that about one out of every three bites of food we eat depends on bee pollination? It's also true that our most important livestock eat plants that depend on bee pollination! If we let our bees disappear, we let our food supply disappear! By buying beeswax beauty products, you help keep our beekeepers in the business of maintaining our bees!
Without the help of pollinating bees, you couldn't have your coffee in the morning because there would be no bees to sustain the coffee trees. Without bees, there would be no more black eyed peas and cabbage for New Year's Day and no more pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving! You could also say goodbye to the much anticipated fresh cherries in late spring, icy cold watermelon in the middle of a hot summer, and those antioxidant rich blueberries in the fall!
