Winter is here and with its arrival comes less humidity and dry air that can sap the moisture right out of the skin.
It can take a toll on the skin, causing excessive dryness and even cracking and flaking. Waxelene skin ointments can bring the relief your skin needs to seal in moisture and restore essential hydration.
It is even gentle enough to use on the delicate skin of babies and pets. There are many uses and benefits of these all-natural skin ointment.
Certified Organic Ingredients of Waxelene Ointments
Every Waxelene skin ointment is natural and made from hypo-allergenic, non-GMO, all-natural ingredients that help reduce skin redness and irritation while providing a thin breathable protective layer to support the skin as it strengthens and heals. Our patented aeration process makes a silky smooth texture like no other.
There are no chemical additives or preservatives that often cause further skin irritation and adverse reactions.
As an added benefit, the Waxelene Calming Ointment contains natural lavender that not only soothes and calms the skin, but also has a lovely scent to aid in relaxation and stress reduction.
Our skin ointments contain natural peptides that combat external free radicals and irritants while helping the skin look younger and more youthful.
Dry skin is caused by loss of essential hydration in the epidermis, the skin’s top layer. Waxelene skin ointments are designed to lock moisture in the epidermis while allowing breathability, thereby allowing the skin to retain water and essential oils more effectively for softer and smoother skin.
The skin ointment also pulls water into the epidermis, and with the excess dead skin cells removed, the skin is able to retain moisture more effectively for ongoing improved appearance and feel.
Waxelene is made from all-natural and organic ingredients with no chemical additives or preservatives. The rosemary and beeswax have anti-inflammatory properties so they soothe skin as well. This makes them great for after-shave and after-sun.
This should act quickly and the occurrence of the irritations and discomfort should gradually and continually minimize and cease completely as the skin condition improves.
If severe redness, hives, rash, or swelling occurs, it is advisable to seek medical attention to ensure there is not an allergic reaction.
Skin Ointment Uses
While anyone can experience skin irritations as a result of things like weather changes, medications being taken, or conditions like eczema, older adults often suffer from dry, itchy skin year-round as the epidermis and dermal layers of the skin dry lose the ability to effectively retain water and essential oils with age.
The itchy feeling often causes people to scratch, causing further irritation, breaks in the skin that may bleed, and even infection if not treated immediately and appropriately.
While cleansers can help keep the skin free of dirt, bacteria and debris that can cause infection, the primary cause of the dryness and itchiness must be addressed or the cycle will repeat and may become a progressively more serious situation over time.
Waxelene is an all-natural ointment and an alternative to petroleum jelly that can help hydrate and restore dry, cracked skin and chapped lips caused by a variety of situations. There are many benefits and skin ointment uses including the following:

- Replenish the skin’s moisture and essential oils after a day in the sun

How to Use Skin Ointment
Before using any product, it is advisable to consult with your dermatologist or physician to ensure there are no ingredients that may have a counter-interaction with other medications you are taking or may need to take in the future.
Once your physician has approved the skin ointment for use, follow these steps:
- Prior to applying the skin ointment, use a gentle skin cleanser to clean the skin and remove external debris and irritants. Avoid overly hot baths or showers as hot water can aggressively dry the skin.
- Pat the skin dry. Be sure to not rub the skin as this can cause further irritation, redness, or even broken skin with bleeding.
- Immediately apply a thin layer of Waxelene to thoroughly cover the affected area. Avoid sensitive areas like the eyes and genital areas.
Repeat these steps morning and night. If there is no noticeable improvement within a few days, consider increasing the use to three times per day.
Try to wear loose-fitting clothing or soft cotton that allows the skin to breathe and does not cause further skin irritation.
Fabrics like wool or polyester may be scratchy on the skin. Sleep on soft, clean sheets and blankets that are free from dirt and bacteria.
Following these steps in skin ointment should result in softer, more hydrated skin.
