Today i will talk about this amazing ingredient. I didnt know about this ingredient until i found benefit lipstick. I saw a lipstick on their website Benefit Cosmetics and wanted to know if it has any animal driven ingredient which is HARAAM. I mailed to the Benefit customer care and asked about their ingredients. Janna, the customer care member replied back and told me that they do not use any animal driven fat except beeswax. I looked up on the internet and got to know the details regarding this product. You can also find the ingredients at every product at the description of this brand.

What is beeswax?

Beeswax is a natural wax that is produced by the honey bees in their hives. Hives are the colony where honey bees returned after gathering the nectar from the flowers.

How bees make wax?

I found this part very interesting and i really hope you all like it too. Honey bees collects the nectar from the flowers which is stored in her special honey stomach. With this nectar either honey is made or either beeswax.

The special wax glands in the abdomen consist of 4-6 segments goes through the process of wax. The honey which is in the liquid form quickly cools and changed it into the wax form. The wax appears on the abdomen which bee collect with her legs , the bee then chew the wax and mold a honeycomb(a six sided cell).

Alhumdullilah, ALLAH and HIS materpiece work .

This superbly created ingredient is present in most of our cosmetic brands. Especially in the lip balms and lipsticks. The use of this ingredient creates a creamy and smooth texture. It is also used in eye makeup products which allows an easy application.

Hope you like it 🙂

Salicylic Acid

Don’t you just hate acne?

Don’t you wanna get rid of it?

We all face acne/pimples at almost every stage of our lives and then we have to avoid makeup as its a believe that makeup will provoke the acne.

The ingredient i will talk today is the Salicylic Acid.  This ingredient really helps in preventing the acne. It is an exfoliant which helps in shedding away of dead skin cell.

How does it work?

The important question how does it work , this penetrate into the follicle(spherical group of cells) which encourage in shedding the dead skin cells and clears the pores of the skin. It prevents from blockage of pores and breakouts in skin.
