Beeswax & Why It's Good for Waxing

When it comes to choosing the best body waxes, it could be a little hard due to the various versions of wax all over the internet. Since waxing for hair removal is such a sensitive process, there is a standard quality to be expected. Body waxing differs from other hair removal processes because it brings quick results. Since the results last for weeks on end, people expect the results to be emphasized during a professional service. Not all waxes are the same and carry different compositions that cater to the needs of different skin types of procedures. In many cases, beeswax is a vital ingredient in keeping everything together. It is also the main force behind the effectiveness of the professional waxes we sell.

Beeswax & Its Benefits

In the beauty and cosmetic world, Beeswax has always been in the conversation when speaking about skincare and cosmetic products. Beeswax is produced by the worker beehives and can be extracted from the honeycombs, just like honey! Beeswax is used for multiple purposes from candles to waterproof salves. There are many reasons why beeswax and honey are common ingredients in the cosmetic and even healthcare industry.

One reason why beeswax is a common ingredient is due to its great moisturizing properties. It works wonders when you are trying to hydrate and soothe the skin. Vitamin A is a key component of Beeswax, and it is one of the main reasons why it is a reoccurring ingredient in many body products like hair removal waxes, hair products, lotions, lip balms, etc.

Here are some straightforward benefits Beeswax provides:

Helps Fight Irritation: Because beeswax has a quick and soothing effect, it helps alleviate irritated skin and reduces discomfort. It also helps reduce the risks of an allergic breakout, which are common when waxing sensitive skin.

Provides Hygiene and Protection: Since beeswax has antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties, it serves as an ideal product to avoid infections during a delicate skincare treatment. Beeswax helps keep bacteria away and helps protect the skin from acne to eczema.

Esthetic Advantages: Depending on the products and concentration of the beeswax properties, it can help preserve the skin’s natural elasticity. Its natural hydrating properties make the skin feel and look healthier. It has been used to conceal stretchmarks and slow down the effects of gravity as the skin ages.

Wax formulas, like other products enriched with beeswax, cannot be left on the skin for too long. The waxy residue would cover the hair when they are at their most vulnerable and it will fail to remove the hair. Once applied and dried, the wax needs to be removed completely, then after you would need to apply the post-waxing gel on the area to make sure the healing process goes smoothly.

Is beeswax good for professional wax formulas?

Some of the main ingredients in hard waxes include beeswax and rosin. To reduce burns and prevent discomfort, the wax needs to be warmed at a low melting point to soften the mix. The hard wax pulls the hair from the root in one smooth motion because it sticks to the hair directly after reaching the ideal consistency. Almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamins C and E are some natural ingredients combined with Beeswax in professional wax formulas to give clients the best and freshest results. There is a plethora of combinations of ingredients that are safe for hair removal; each differs by fragrance or texture. Many people create homemade wax formulas using beeswax because it is so accessible.

Natural Beeswax Hard wax is a wax we provide that is known everywhere. It is part of our signature Classic line of hard waxes, and it is a customer favorite. The hard wax guarantees a delicate treatment that leaves the skin flexible and supple while ensuring a relaxing wax removal experience. Due to its composition and ingredients, Natural Hard Wax can be used to remove both facial and body hair without causing swelling or irritation.

Although beeswax is a signature ingredient in many wax formulas, it is not essential for waxes to be able to remove hair if it is replaced with a similar type of ingredient. There I people who lean into vegan wax formulas that include other types of wax like candelilla, bayberry, or soy. At Beauty Image, we offer products that adhere to the likes of people who would like a vegan or soy option as opposed to our Natural Wax. We offer our Soy Marvelous wax, which is a botanical hair remover. It is a great alternative to our waxes containing beeswax yet still maintains all the practical benefits that make it work on all skin types. Our Soy Marvelous has antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and anti-inflammatory properties that give the skin a smooth and moisturizing feel.

When it comes to hair removal, it is always best to go with the safest option: wax hair removal. Since the process is so sensitive, it is best to choose waxes that have properties like beeswax to ensure smooth and painless wax hair removal.
