Ingredient Spotlight: Sunflower and Olive Wax

Did you know that your skin can impact how scent radiates? It's true - whether your skin is dry or moisturized makes a difference in how strong scent will hold and smell. This is one of the reasons why we love using Ambre Blends Natural Solid Essence. Our Solid Essence is made with the addition of sunflower and olive wax which will both moisturize and hydrate your skin during application. But that's not the only reason we chose to use these waxes in our Solid Essence.

Sunflower Wax

Sunflower wax is rich in essential fatty acids, which is beneficial for calming skin. It is also full of vitamins A and D, and has a high percentage of vitamin E which makes it an important source of nourishing and conditioning care for dry skin. It is a great repairing agent and acts against the oxidation of skin lipids, almost as a shield for the skin. It is great for preventing dehydration in your skin and has nourishing, calming, and antibacterial properties without blocking pores. Sunflower wax is a great alternative to beeswax, being 100% natural and vegan.

Olive Wax

Olive wax is an excellent moisturizing ingredient that doesn't leave an oily feel on skin. Since olive wax is similar to human sebum, it helps improve the skin's moisture barrier and increases collagen. It is rich in vitamins and antioxidants which also helps improve skin hydration. It has anti-aging properties and provides relief from sun damage. We love how smoothly olive wax spreads on the skin, leaving it soft and moisturized. Olive wax is also a great beeswax alternative, being 100% natural and vegan.
