Beeswax is a unique substance and has several benefits to the human body. Beeswax has no benefit when consumed directly because it is inert, but it can have other applications that are beneficial to your body.
Beeswax refers to the natural wax produced by honeybees in their beehives. The honeybees produce this wax either to build their honeycombs or to repair it. Beeswax generally comes in colors like yellow, white, orange, brown, or red and the changing color depends on the age of the honeycomb or its usage to raise a brood.
Beeswax contains natural moisturizers that make it useful as a skin and lip balm — the substance locks in moisture and can help keep the skin firm and plump. In some cases, beeswax may be applied to minor burns or other skin damage in order to help the skin heal.
Beeswax has non-allergenic properties that can make it a useful skin protection from various airborne allergies. Beeswax also provides slight anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities which can benefit the body.
Beeswax is suitable for food and cosmetic uses.
