5 REASONS THAT BEES ARE IMPORTANT FOR SKINCARE
May 15, 2023
Bees are fascinating little creatures that do so much more than just buzz around and make some honey. They also play a crucial role in our ecosystem by pollinating plants and providing food for us and other animals.
Oh, but that’s not all - they’re also responsible for some of the most incredibly natural ingredients found in our skincare products!
We’re talking beeswax, honey, propolis, and royal jelly, all of which have fantastic benefits for our skin.
I’m a huge fan of the magic of honey, in particular.
In fact, did you know: Most bacteria (and many microbes) are unable to grow or reproduce in honey?
This is because honey is full of antibacterial properties - that’s why a teaspoon of honey helps with a sore throat!
So, grab a cup of tea with a little honey, get comfy, and let’s chat about the importance of bees for the skincare industry and how their magical ingredients can work wonders for our skin.
WHY BEES ARE CRUCIAL FOR SKINCARE
1. BEESWAX FOR MOISTURIZING AND PROTECTION
If you’re someone who struggles with dry or sensitive skin, beeswax may just be
your new best friend.
This natural ingredient not only softens and soothes your skin, but also helps lock in moisture and protect your skin from those skin-aggravating environmental stressors, like UV rays and pollution.
Speaking of keeping skin protected, our CREAM is a must-have for anyone looking to reap the benefits of beeswax along with other botanical antioxidants and phytonutrients like jojoba oil, green tea, and alpha lipoic acid.
2. HONEY FOR NOURISHING AND HEALING
Honey is extremely wealthy when it comes to health benefits. It's even considered
medicine in many parts of the world. This sweet nectar has been used for centuries to heal and is loaded with active enzymes, amino acids, and antioxidants to keep your skin glowing.
But that’s not all - honey also has natural antibacterial properties, making it the
perfect ingredient for anyone struggling with hormonal acne.
That’s why we love our MANDARIN MELT CLEANSING BALM - this little gem contains Manuka honey, which is especially great for those with acne-prone skin.
Not only does it gently cleanse and remove oil-based impurities (i.e. built up SPF and makeup), but it also nourishes and soothes your skin to leave it soft and glowing.
3. PROPOLIS FOR ANTI-AGING
In addition to beeswax and creating honey, did you know that bees collect a magical substance called propolis from trees and plants?
This resin-like ingredient is the perfect addition to your skincare routine, especially
if you’re dealing with hormonal acne or worried about visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.
With its natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, propolis is a
superhero when it comes to fighting breakouts. It’s also been shown to stimulate
collagen production, helping to firm and plump up our skin.
And let’s not forget about its antioxidant-rich goodness, which keeps our skin protected from the environment around you.
4. ROYAL JELLY FOR HYDRATION
Have you ever heard of royal jelly?
It’s the superfood produced by bees to nourish their queen!
There are many health claims made about this nutrient-dense, milky white liquid
which has made its way into many different skincare formulas.
With loads of vitamins and minerals, royal jelly is a powerhouse when it comes to
nourishing and hydrating our skin. It’s also been shown to improve skin texture and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Not only are skincare products with beeswax or honey great for your skin, but
they're also very sustainable. Beeswax and honey are both natural, renewable
resources that can be harvested without bothering or causing harm to our bee
In fact, supporting the use of beeswax and honey in skincare products can actually help support our bee populations by providing a source of income for beekeepers.
It’s a win-win - we get to nourish our skin with these amazing ingredients while also doing our part to protect these vital creatures.
So there you have it!
Bees are not only vital for our ecosystem but also play a significant role in the world of skincare. IN YOUR FACE SKINCARE’s commitment to natural, sustainable ingredients such as beeswax and honey is a reflection of our dedication to both the healing of our skin and our planet.
Using skincare products like our CREAM or MANDARIN MELT CLEANSING BALM that contain these natural ingredients not only nourishes and heals your skin, but supports sustainable practices that protect bees and their environment.
And the next time you use a product with these ingredients, take a moment to appreciate the incredible benefits they provide for your skin, along with the significant contribution these amazing creatures make to the skincare industry.
Let’s continue to support and protect our precious bee populations for generations to come.
