Waxelene contains NO petroleum products - only natural and organic ingredients that are good for your skin and you. Petroleum jelly is a petroleum byproduct - just like the gas or oil in your car.  It is also known as petrolatum or paraffin. Check your cosmetic labels and you may be amazed at what you find!

Why do we use beeswax and natural and organic oils instead of petroleum-based products? Beeswax itself has amazing natural health benefits, excellent consistency for cosmetic use, and of course fantastic smell! Bees pollinate our crops and wild plants, which keeps food on our tables, helps the economy, and contributes to a healthy world. Petroleum products on the other hand are derived from non-renewable fossil fuels, and have been shown to be potentially unhealthy for you and the environment.

Waxelene is the natural choice for a new generation in healthy skin care.
