Beeswax is a natural wax created by honey bees. When combined with mineral or olive oil and made into a paste, the mixture provides a soothing and protective water-resistant coating around the skin. It can be found in makeup, soaps, polishes, lubricants, lip balms, mustache wax, hair pomade, and candles.

When beeswax is combined with mineral or olive oil and made into a paste, the mixture is soothing and protective to the skin. It provides a water-resistant coating around the skin, but can be easily removed with soap. It can also be used to wax, polish, and lubricate things such as surfboards and furniture, and for coating screws and nails.
