I hope you enjoyed it, and now here we go, day 2!4, Sunflower oilWhen it comes to sunflower oil, again, we have got a lot to talk about, because we also use it a lot in cooking.But what will happen when applying it to your skin?

It is true, because beeswax is a natural soothing moisturizer and barrier for irritated skin conditions, like eczema, and protects it from harmful bacteria at the same time. According to Science Direct, their study shows that beeswax has antibacterial activity against several bacterial strains. This means it is a great natural barrier for sensitive skin from harmful bacteria to irritate it even more. According to Healthline: “Beeswax also has a long history of being used for certain skin issues and also is effective for treating burns and wounds. And it is far superior to the management of sensitive skin than skincare products with synthetic ingredients.” In summary, beeswax:Creates a protective layer on the skin,Anti-bacterial,Helps the skin stay hydrated,Sloughs away dead skin cells,Keeps the skin soft. Because of these benefits that beeswax has, you can find our 90% Natural Nappy Barrier Cream in YB London Ltd actually has beeswax as one of the main ingredients. Which really provides babies with extra protection from getting nasty red bottoms and improves skin quality at the same time.Apart from beeswax, there’s also lavender, vitamin E, coconut oil, sunflower oil, cocoa butter and more goodness in this single pot. Imagine the power of it, it is really a masterpiece of the power of mother nature!The power of nature is really stronger than anything! We can never beat it, and it is not something that just simply can be replaced by synthetic ingredients!
