Proven! Our team of chemistry whizzes has analyzed this product’s label claims, and the ingredients that deliver them. Here’s the science behind why it works.
The Claim: Reinforces Lipid Barrier
Ingredient: Jojoba Oil - Pronounced ho-ho-ba, this natural plant-based oil helps other oils penetrate better since its waxy consistency is similar to our skin’s natural sebum. Read study.
Ingredient: Beeswax - In chemist-speak, this fatty-acid packed wax is known as a ‘barrier cream’ – which means it helps decrease water loss on the skin by strengthening the skin’s natural lipid layer. Bonus: Beeswax has also been shown to strengthen elastin fibers (your skin’s support structure). Read Study.
The Claim: Waterproof
Ingredient: Beeswax - As an occulsive agent, beeswax provides a double-duty barrier that helps limit moisture loss (great for super dry skin) and keeps unwanted moisture out (perfect for water-resistant eye makeup). Bonus points for its natural origins, making it a win-win ingredient! Read review article.
Ingredient: Candelilla Wax - This wax from a Mexican shrub is super popular in cosmetics, where it lends shape and a smooth application to eyeliners and lipsticks, but studies have also found provides a barrier to bead off water. Read study.
