Ah, World Bee Day! A day to celebrate and pay tribute to the great bees that make our lives infinitely better by pollinating our gardens and flowering plants. In honour of this special occasion, let’s take a moment to appreciate how natural beeswax has been an integral part of the skincare formulas we’ve developed for you.
The many benefits of beeswax include its ability to lock in moisture and protect skin from environmental irritants. That s why beekeepers worldwide have long exploited it for its medicinal properties.
Today we’ll explore how natural beeswax from World Bee Day is used in skincare formulations, what makes it so effective, and how you can use it in your routine. And when you’re done reading this article, feel free to light a candle or two as an extra special thank you to all hardworking bees!
What Is World Bee Day?
World Bee Day is an annual event on May 20th that celebrates bees and other pollinators’ vital role in our environment. Bees pollinate over 75% of the world’s food supply, making them an essential part of our ecosystem. The day also focuses on raising awareness about the threats facing bee populations due to disease, pesticides, habitat loss, and climate change. On this day, we can all work to support and protect our valuable bees!
And if you are looking for ways to show your appreciation for bees this World Bee Day, look no further than natural beeswax for your skincare needs. Natural beeswax is known for its skin-benefiting properties, such as being rich in emollients that help keep skin hydrated and protective wax barriers that help shield against environmental damage without clogging pores or irritating skin. So while you’re thanking bees today, you can also thank them next time you apply some natural beeswax-based skincare!
The Importance of Bees in the Environment
Bees are some of nature’s most important pollinators. This means they help plants to reproduce, which in turn helps to support the entire food chain. But bees have suffered massive population loss globally due to habitat destruction, climate change, and diseases.
Without them, many of our ecosystems could collapse. In recognition of how vital bees are to our planet and its sustainability, World Bee Day was established as an official United Nations holiday in 2017.
That’s why we want to do our part in helping out these little helpers. Our natural beeswax is ethically sourced from family-run beekeepers, who treat their colonies with respect and care while producing quality-made wax that helps shape our unique formulas.
We believe in protecting the environment and doing right by the bees because the world would be darker without them!
Why Beeswax Is a Perfect Natural Skincare Ingredient
Beeswax is a fantastic natural ingredient for skincare routines, and World Bee Day is a great time to discuss their importance. Beeswax has been used for centuries in cosmetic products, from candles to facial cleansers, and it has some unique properties that make it an ideal choice for skincare products.
Beeswax contains vitamin A, well-known for its softening and anti-ageing properties. It also helps to lock in moisture and form a protective barrier on the skin without clogging pores, making it perfect for use in our natural skincare formulas.
Beeswax also has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antioxidant and sunscreen qualities that can benefit the skin. This powerful blend of properties helps keep your skin healthy and looking great!
At Blmy Fox, we are always mindful of sustainability when formulating our skincare products beeswax fits right into this consideration. Beeswax production encourages bee health, ultimately protecting the environment in its small way and preserving the balance between natural and artificial products. Beeswax is also 100% biodegradable, so you don’t have to worry about leaving any lengthy environmental footprint when you use our formulas.
Benefits of Using Natural Beeswax in Skincare Products
Did you know that natural beeswax is often an ingredient in skincare products? Believe it or not, it has exceptional moisturising and protective qualities and can do wonders for your skin.
At Balmy Fox, we opt for natural beeswax in our formulas because of its numerous benefits. Here are some of the reasons why you should too:
The antioxidant properties found in beeswax can help protect your skin from free radical damage. This helps keep your skin healthy and looking younger for longer. It also helps lock in moisture so your skin stays hydrated even after using your skincare products.
On the Trail – Anti-Chafe Cream
Beeswax is less likely to irritate the skin than other waxes, such as carnauba wax or paraffin wax. That’s why we use it, we want our products to be gentle enough to be used on any skin type – but be healing and protecting!
The anti-inflammatory properties of natural beeswax can help reduce inflammation and redness caused by eczema or other skin conditions. This helps soothe and calm the skin!
Beyond its skincare benefits, using natural beeswax is a great way to honour World Bee Day and show appreciation for its essential role in our lives. So show some love and ensure your skincare routine includes this special ingredient!
