The Benefits of Beeswax for Rosacea and Eczema
Posted on June 19 2020
Find out what beeswax is, how it can help soothe your rosacea and eczema, and why we use it as the main ingredient in our Bee-tanical Body Balm.
What is Beeswax?
Beeswax is made from the honeycomb of bees, mainly the honeybee. By mixing pollen oils into honeycomb wax, bees turn the wax from white to yellow.
Beeswax is used in a number of health and beauty products and is believed to alleviate pain, fungal skin infections, high cholesterol and other conditions.
This all-natural product can also help with the symptoms of rosacea and eczema, as seen below.
How Does Beeswax Benefit Skin?
Many skincare products use beeswax to improve the texture and condition of your skin. If you suffer from acne, dry skin, eczema or rosacea, ask your dermatologist to help you understand the benefits of beeswax in health and beauty products you bring home.
Beeswax may lock in moisture, protect your skin cells from environmental damage and rejuvenate your skin. If you constantly suffer from dry, itchy skin, look into products with beeswax to soften and heal your skin.

What is Rosacea and What Are the Symptoms?
Rosacea is a skin condition that results in redness and visible blood vessels. Many people get rosacea on their faces, primarily around the nose and mouth areas. If you have it, you may notice small, pus-filled bumps. Symptoms can flare up for weeks then go away. Rosacea is often mistaken for acne or natural ruddiness.
Signs and symptoms of rosacea include:
- Facial redness
- Swollen, red bumps
- Eye problems
- Enlarged nose
What is Eczema and What Are the Symptoms?
Eczema is typically itchy. For many people, it's only moderately annoying. However, others develop extremely irritated skin. Sometimes, people scratch until the affected area bleeds — this makes your eczema worse.
Symptoms of eczema include the following:
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Severe to moderate itching
- Dark-colored patches
- Scaly patches
- Oozing or crusting
- Areas of swelling or inflammation
How Can Beeswax Help Both Skin Conditions?
Beeswax acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps soothe and protect your skin against infection. This is good news for those with rosacea and eczema, which both lead to irritated, inflamed skin.
Beeswax clears the skin of pathogens, allowing it to become healthy again.Beeswax creates a natural barrier with amazing properties. Fungi and pollen often trigger skin flare-ups.
With beeswax products, you protest your skin and give it a coat of armor! At the same time, beeswax holds in moisture to prevent your skin from drying out. However, beeswax doesn't clog pores or cause acne breakouts.
