Honeybees produce wax to serve as a protective lining of honeycomb cells for baby bees. The same characteristics that make the wax an excellent shield for the little ones also make it the perfect ingredient for skin care products. As a natural source of antioxidants, beeswax is often included in anti-aging formulas that address free radical damage. It shares the antibacterial benefits of honey, not only fighting breakouts but also minimizing the growth of fungus and bacteria within open bottles of product, and it’s also chock-full of vitamin A, thus boosting cell turnover to reduce blemishes. The anti-inflammatory attributes of beeswax mean its great for expediting wound-healing, reducing scarring and soothing itching and irritated skin, too. Beeswax is also used to naturally thicken lotions and similar products, and enhance spreadability to optimize our application experience. Is there anything that beeswax can’t do?
WHAT DOES IT DO?

A balm having superior benefits for hair and skin, it also provides a light natural hold ensuring those stray beard hairs stay in place.
To understand how beard balm works, it’s important to understand the importance of including it in your beard grooming routine. Beard balms often contain ingredients that help nourish, condition, and moisturize the beard while promoting healthy growth at the same time.
You can use beard balm to soften as well as moisten the beard, which removes and tangles and knots. As a result, whenever you run a beard comb or brush through the beard, it will not feel brittle and will not get tangled up.
Beard balm is a leave-in conditioner for your beard that works to soften the beard when used regularly. They also help to get rid of any tangles that may develop in your beard. Your skin will naturally produce sebum oil, but when the natural supply of this oil is depleted, dandruff develops. Beard balm contains carrier oils and butter that are designed to resemble and mimic sebum oil, which helps to moisturize the beard and prevent dandruff from appearing. Just like conditioner and beard oil, beard balm also works to prevent beard itch. It is also used to treat beard dandruff that may result from sensitive and dry skin by locking the moisture in.
While ‘hold’ is not the selling point of beard balms, the product can be used to keep stray hairs at bay. Thanks to beeswax that is often a common ingredient on all beard balms, you can tame stray hairs and help hold a style in place though the hold is not as strong as when you use beard wax. Finally, beard balms can be used to detangle your beard. If you have a long and full beard, then knots and tangles are often the order of the day.
THE POWER OF CALENDULA
Calendula oil is often used to hydrate dry scalps, remove dandruff, and improve the condition of the scalp. With its regenerative properties it helps the hair follicles grow abundantly allowing for a thicker mane, and the antioxidants help protect the hair and scalp against cell-damaging free radicals.
So what is Calendula oil exactly?
Marigold is a genus of about 15 to 20 species of plants in the Asteraceae family. This flower is native to Southwestern Asia, as well as Western Europe and the Mediterranean. The common name “marigold” refers to the Virgin Mary, to which it is associated in the 17th century.
Benefits of Calendula Oil
Calendula oil is traditionally used for abdominal cramps and constipation. However it’s your skin that will receive a good bulk of the benefits, thanks to the oil’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and related properties. Here are some of the promoted benefits of this oil.
Skin dryness or chapping – Calendula oil is a great moisturiser for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin. It soothes the area and reduces the pain.
Inflammation – It works well on swelling sprained muscles or bruises; its anti-inflammatory action helps lessen swelling from injury. Calendula oil also helps treat spider veins, varicose veins and leg ulcers.
Baby care – The oil helps with nappy rashes, which can extremely irritate an infant.
Minor cuts and wounds – The antiseptic and antimicrobial action of the oil help speed up healing of wounds and minor cuts, and also benefit insect bites, acne, and bed sores.
Skin issues – Eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin problems can be soothed using Calendula oil, applied topically. Calendula oil’s antifungal action is also great for treating athlete’s foot, ringworm, and…wait for it, ball-sack itch – teehee.
