Has a calming effect on irritated skin (e.g. eczema and rosacea) and can be used with advantage on sensitive skin and acne. Beeswax does not clog the pores and allows the skin to breathe.

All BeeKi products contain beeswax from our own bees.

The worker bees in the hive extract wax from glands on their abdomens. The wax is used to build the hexagonal "cells" where the bees store honey or pollen (or where the queen lays eggs). To ensure the long-term durability of the honey, the bees lay a thin layer of wax over the honey. When we roll the honey boards, we must first peel off this layer of wax (also called peeling wax).

The beeswax is melted and filtered before it is used in our skin care products.
