Beeswax skin cream ingredients
What is the Borax used for as an ingredient in the skin cream, and are there other skin creams available since I have sensitive and dehyrated skin and have to be careful what I put on my skin?
I was wondering about borax what is it and why is it in a skin cream. I thought is was used for cleaning?
The main ingredient in the Beeswax Skin Cream is beeswax and the % of Borax is low. That being said, Borax is used as a natural agent that is completely clean to help emulsify the beeswax, otherwise it would go hard. When combined with beeswax borax does not irritate the skin. However, if you used borax alone on the skin it may cause irritation.
I successfully used both of the creams with clients for their babies bottoms, elderly, children, teenagers and adults.
The beeswax skin cream is great in the winter on rough, chapped skin. I was just reminded the other day of the importance of the beeswax skin cream because as the weather gets colder my skin gets chapped and sometimes itchy - and the cream works wonders for that.
If you'd like to avoid the borax, you might consider using our So Ho Mish cream. I have listed the description and ingredients below:
