Beeswax

BeeswaxBeeswax (Apis mellifera wax) is a natural wax made by honeybees in the hives. Beeswax is used extensively in cosmetics and beauty products.  As a skin care product, a German study found beeswax to be superior to similar “barrier creams” (usually mineral oil based creams, such as petroleum jelly), when used according to its protocol.
