Beeswax is a by-product of honey harvesting. It is a natural wax produced by individual honey bees of the genus Apis. Beeswax has non-allergenic properties that can make it a useful skin protector from various airborne allergies. It also provides slight anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant qualities which can benefit the body. Each balm by Last Forest is blended with other natural flavours and oils, to add to the health benefit of the balm. A combination of olive oil and beeswax keeps your skin soft and smooth, and protects it from chafing due to extreme climate.
