    What is a beeswax lotion bar?

    A beeswax lotion bar is a solid moisturizer that is made from a combination of beeswax, oils, and butter. The beeswax acts as a barrier to lock in moisture, while the oils and butter help to nourish and condition the skin. 

    Unlike lotions that are made with water, lotion bars do not require a preservative, which makes them an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. Moreover, because they are solid, lotion bars are easy to transport and can be applied directly to the skin, making them extremely versatile.

    What does beeswax do in a lotion bar?

    Beeswax is a natural emollient, meaning it helps to soften and protect the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe irritated skin. 

    In addition, beeswax helps to create a barrier on the skin, trapping moisture and keeping your skin hydrated. As a result, lotion bars made with beeswax are an excellent choice for those with dry or sensitive skin.
