Beeswax contains “wax esters” that also exist in human skin. As a natural hydrating ingredient that increases skin’s essential moisture, beeswax helps retain natural skin moisture and relieve itch from sensitive skin. Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the surface of the skin. This barrier provides a film of protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. Beeswax is beneficial for treating minor skin irritations. It contains vitamin A, which may be beneficial in softening and rehydrating dry skin and in cell reconstruction.

Shea Butter has been used to help burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and stretch marks. It may also help diminish the appearance of wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation.

Retinoic acid markedly improves the complexion by visibly reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles, and improving pigmentation and fine texture of the skin. Lightly massaged into the skin, this oil acts on the cell membranes, supports their immune reaction, and initiates their regeneration. Studies have shown rosehip seed oil to have a positive effect on scars and stretch marks. Scars caused by injury or surgery are effectively treated to reduce the red coloration and the appearance of lumps that often occur. Excellent results have been obtained through its anti-inflammatory properties in improving burning skin and dermatitis caused by radiotherapy.
