4 Great Uses for Beeswax

Filed Under: Beauty,Home,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Beeswax is an incredible natural substance that can be used in many different ways. Produced naturally by honey worker bees in bee hives, beeswax has non-allergenic properties that can make it a useful skin protection from various airborne allergies. Beeswax contains Vitamin A and provides long-term moisturizing, also offering slight anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities which can benefit the body. How can you add this amazing product into your life? Here are 4 great uses for beeswax.

1. Skin Moisturizer

Beeswax contains natural moisturizers that make it useful as a skin moisturizer. In fact, beeswax has the ability to lock in your skin’s natural moisture keeping the skin firm and plump, and the vitamins in beeswax can help protect and repair rough, dry, or chapped skin. This amazing product can also be applied to minor burns, skin cuts, scrapes, wounds, or other skin damage in order to help the skin heal. Beeswax can actually soothe easily irritated skin, making it one of the best skin care ingredients for those who suffer from allergies or other skin problems like rosacea or eczema.

2. Hair Products

A variety of hair products contain beeswax as an ingredient for a good reason. Beeswax has many of the same health benefits when applied to the hair as it does when rubbed into your skin. Beeswax not only moisturizes hair but it also keeps moisture from getting out of the hair. Plus, beeswax is used to naturally stimulate hair growth and is considered a great alternative product for those battling hair loss.

3. Lip Balm

One of the most popular uses for beeswax is lip balm products. Keep your lips moisturized with this natural protectant as beeswax acts as a layer of protection when applied to the lips, protecting the lips from environmental irritants and even the weather. Beeswax lip balm is one of the best ways to keep your lips from getting chapped during these cold, windy winter months.

4. Candles

Beeswax makes great natural candles and you can do it yourself too. Beeswax candles are free of toxic smoke and can spread the great, sweet smell of honey all around your home.

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Susty Party

Filed Under: Environment,Home at 6:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Picnics, outdoor events and parties are just part of the summer. But did you know that parties and events generate the second largest amount of waste in the USA, just behind the construction industry? Reducing the waste should be a priority for everyone and that’s a great reason Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce Susty Party products to our customers.

Susty Party offers responsibly-made, eco-friendly party supplies and compostable tableware to make parties more sustainable. The company creates plates, cups, bowls, and straws made of natural materials, and no products are made from traditional plastic, paper or Styrofoam. All products are non-toxic and contain no harmful chemicals, plastics and dyes. Susty Party products can be used hundreds of times, instead of just once, which is always better for the environment than a single-use product.

This unique line of eco-friendly products is made of natural materials such as sugarcane stalks, baked plant starch, palm leaves, and plant based resin. Sugarcane stalks are crushed in sugar refineries. The fibrous remains of these stalks are called Bagasse, a pre-consumer recycled material which is a sturdier alternative to paper. Baked plant starch from tapioca starch and grass fibers are mixed together to form an oven safe, microwave safe, super sturdy but natural, compostable and non-toxic material. Palm leaves are pressed with steam to create sturdy, leak-resistant, naturally compostable, plates and bowls. PLA, or polylactic acid, is a plant-based resin, which uses kernel that would not have otherwise been used for food. PLA looks and feels like traditional plastic, however it will melt with temperatures over 100F.

Lucky Vitamin is now offering Susty Party earth-friendly tableware products at our discounted prices.

Healthy, Clean Air

Filed Under: Home,Natural Cleaning Aids at 12:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Breathing clean air is essential for a healthier life but signs of impurity can be difficult to identify. Unpleasant odors are quite easy to be discovered, likely a buildup of bacteria in the air, but the majority of air pollution isn’t visible, and neither can be smelled.

Indoor air pollutants directly cause a vast number of health problems, and removal of these harmful materials can improve your quality of life. Studies have shown that air purifiers can significantly reduce and eliminate harmful contaminants and pollutants (which cause common respiratory illnesses) and consequently prevent colds, asthma, headaches, and allergy irritation of the nose and eyes.

Air purifiers work by directing air through a filter multiple times as the filters are able to catch particles, ultimately purifying the air up and freeing the inhabitant of unsafe contaminants such as dust, pollen, bacteria, spores and viruses. When shopping for an air purifier, it’s important to look for HEPA product, a type of air filter which meets the High-Efficiency Particulate Air standards. Modern HEPA products contain the most powerful air purification technology and can remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. Cleanliness is also important, regular dusting followed by vacuuming is a vital step but the problem is that while reducing pollution particles it also stirs them up. A HEPA air purifier can prevent what would otherwise be a vicious cycle.

Additionally, plants can help to clean the air inside your home. A list of air filtering plants was compiled by NASA as part of a clean air study. As well as absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. The list includes many house plants such as spider plant and aloe vera which also contains a medicinal gel, known for healing cuts and burns.

Bars Soap or Liquid Soap, Let the Debate Begin

Filed Under: Home,Personal Care at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Bars soap or liquid soap? One of those never ending debates, some people may wonder which one is better? Soaps are needed to maintain proper hygiene. People should wash hands frequently with soap to clean and prevent illnesses. So, let’s start the debate showing the advantages and disadvantages of both bar and liquid soap.

A better choice for the environment, bar soap is typically packaged in paper or cardboard. Most packaging materials are recyclable and can break down more easily in landfills than the plastic liquid soaps dispensers. Additionally, bar soap contain glycerin, good for treatment of dermatological problems such as eczema. Another advantage, there are many bar soaps on the market that are fragrance-free, a better option for people who are allergic to fragrances. On top of that, bar soaps can be more cost effective, generally cheaper than liquid versions. Lastly, you can find a much larger variety of bar soaps, particularly homemade, natural and organic, than liquid ones.

Liquid soap has a good number of advantages as well. One claim against bar soaps is the bacteria factor because people sometimes share the same bar of soap, which may carry germs and bacteria on its wet surface. Bar soap may turn mushy in standing water leading to mess and waste. Liquid soap is definitely a better choice for public bathrooms, reducing exchange of germs between users. Liquid soap convenient use in dispensers or bottles is often preferred over bars for its cleaner use. Liquid soap also contains lower pH level than bar soaps, gentler and suitable for people with sensitive, dry skin.

In conclusion, both bar and liquid soap have a good number of advantages and disadvantages and it’s difficult to point out which one is better. So, what’s your say? Do you prefer liquid soap or bar soap?

Lucky Vitamin is offering a moisturizing bar and liquid soaps sale right now. You can save up to 50% on over 150 natural body soaps from many premium brands.
