Hello there, I ordered the Beeswax skin cream for my daughter. She is seven and has eczema on her hands and wrists. So I try to use all natural products with no additives or fragrances, thinking this was a good one, when I recieved it and read the ingredients it said Borax. That concerns me because it is used as a home cleaning product, and have read that just because its a natural mineral, dosen't mean its safe, and to be careful when using it as a cleaning agent.
Now I'm concerned about using it on her skin. I don't like putting products on her skin or our skin with added chemicals or additives cause it flares her eczema and not good for our health. What can you honestly tell me about this ingredient.
Thanks for your time. Renae
please let me know
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 have successfully used both of the creams with clients for their babies bottoms, elderly, children, teenagers and adults without any irritation. It is extremely safe and we have not had one complaint over any type of issue with the borax causing skin issues. In fact, it is quite the contrary. Conditions like eczema and psoriasis respond very well to it.
I stand 100% behind this product. If you have any issues with it causing irritation on your daughters skin, we will refund your money without questions.
