The title says it all. Our little honey producing pollinating friends don’t really need much of an introduction--these guys do it all, soup to nuts. They fly, make honey (which basically never goes bad), pollinate everything, and produce a nifty little natural gift to us called beeswax. Basically everything they produce is like magic, and we want to incorporate everything we can from them in the most symbiotic way possible. Bees have had a tough go of it in our post-industrial world, and we want to do everything we can to ensure they can go about their business in the most happy and healthy way possible. But enough about the love for these amazing little insects, let's talk about things beeswax can actually DO for your human body.
Beeswax moisturizes skin--a perfect quality for an organic deodorant. It inhibits the growth of bacteria, providing a protective layer on the skin to prevent any organisms from finding that warm, dark place they need to thrive. It aids in the treatment of acne, diaper rash, cracked/dry skin, and fungal infections. Did we forget to mention that it also can help with stretch marks? Not that you need to be rubbing deo on your inner thighs, but it’s not out of the question.
Bottom line is, this bacteria inhibiting, moisturizing, all-in-one organic skincare base is the cat’s pajamas. We like science as much as the next guy, but if it’s not broke, don’t fix it! Beeswax will always be at the heart and soul of our organic deodorant products, because we know those guys got it right the first time.
