When it comes to one of the most important ingredients for beard balms and mustache waxes, most people think of Beeswax first. And they would be right.
Beeswax is produced by honeybees and is the natural wax they use to make honeycombs (read more about the history of beeswax here). Beeswax is so important because it gives beard balm and mustache wax their holding properties.
We use Beeswax in our waxes, balms and pomades, but it is unworkable in it's original state, and needs to be softened down by adding other ingredients such as oils and butters.in order to make it more workable.
Beeswax has health benefits for both the skin and hair and has been used to nourish and style hair for a long time. It can be used to tame and slick down dry, frizzy, curly, and flyaway hairs.
For skin it also softens and conditions as it locks in moisture. Containing Vitamin A it has both anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritated skin caused by skin problems such as dry skin or eczema.
It's anti-germicidal properties can help with the healing of cuts and scrapes as well. It is regularly used in lip balm as it gives a layer of protection to the skin from environmental irritants and chapped lips caused by harsh weather.
Using beeswax on beards and moustache helps to style and keep the hairs together as well as keeping hair soft and clean. Because it's a sealant it will also repel dirt and grime and moisture, as well as keeping the hair shiny.
