One of the oldest raw ingredients, beeswax has a whole host of brilliant haircare benefits that are often overlooked.

More about Beeswax

Produced by the youngest bees in a hive, it’s used as both an emulsifier (which is something that helps bind opposite ingredients, like oil and water, to stop them from separating) and a base ingredient in many products. But it has plenty of its own beeswax benefits, too – here’s the lowdown.

  • Put simply, beeswax is a natural wax produced by honeybees. In Latin, it’s known as ‘cera alba’. Bees secrete this wax to build the honeycombs in which honey is stored. Our Whole Blends Honey Treasures Shampoo & Conditioner is formulated with this incredible ingredient. Beeswax is made of fatty compounds, which gives it interesting properties and has incredible haircare and skincare benefits.

  • Absolutely! Beeswax helps protect hair from external aggressions. It is also a good moisturizer that helps lock in moisture, making it a great ingredient for dry hair. Our Whole Blends Honey Treasures Mask and Whole Blends Honey Treasures Nectar are enriched with beeswax, ensuring they effectively address the needs of fragile, broken hair. These properties could also make beeswax particularly good for curly hair. In short, beeswax is a brilliant ingredient for hair care, and using a beeswax hair mask or a beeswax shampoo can provide enhanced effects.
