Urban Bee Company’s Salve begins with organic, raw jojoba oil. Pressed from seeds of the jojoba plant—a North American desert shrub—jojoba “oil” is actually a wax ester that approximates our skin’s own sebum, making it ideal for moisturizing. Jojoba also fights bacteria and inflammation and is naturally non-comedogenic.
Next, an infusion of organic lavender flowers in an organic olive oil base is added. Lavender has been used traditionally to calm the nervous system, soothe irritated skin, and improve emotional well-being.
This is all melted together with beeswax harvested from Urban Bee Company's own hives. Beeswax provides a layer of protection, while allowing the skin to breathe. It acts as an emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in.
