This formula has worked very well with sensitive skin and acne prone skin issues. Every ingredient adds a special element to this beautiful balm. Beeswax in particular is an anti-inflammatory that greatly reduce the visible effects of acne on the skin while the antiseptic and medicinal properties clear the infection, providing lasting treatment and healing. The high vitamin A content is an all-essential component of the healthy skin cell production that boosts the healing process. After the acne has been removed, beeswax will soften the skin with an emollient effect that gives a fresh and restored look.
Shea butter is an important part of this base. For thousands of years, humans have applied and consumed shea butter for its skin-protecting properties. It is very rich in omega-6 linoleic and omega-9 oleic essential fatty acids (EFAs), which comprise over 50% of shea butter by weight. It also contains large, naturally-occurring concentrations of retinol, which is clinically shown to reduce wrinkles, as well as various highly beneficial naturally-occurring UV absorbers, antioxidants and omega-3 EFAs. It also has a natural SPF of up to 8.
Shea butter is reported to be a natural moisturizer and emollient, as well as a competent cell regenerator. It pulls moisture from the air, allowing your skin to retain extra moisture throughout the day. This also provides your skin with added elasticity, which leads to a younger-looking complexion as well as reduces the appearance of stretch marks, scars and other skin blemishes.
