Organic & Natural Skin Care
Eternal Bee has a full line of Organic and All Natural Line of Skin Care, infused with the amazing properties of Beeswax and USDA Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel. It is guaranteed to keep your entire body moisturized even in those cold dry months of Canada’s winter. Beeswax is a natural emulsifier and helps protect the skin against damage from UV rays and the outer elements. Beeswax locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin from damaging environmental factors. Beeswax effectively softens your skin and creates a long-lasting protective coating against the elements. It also is a naturally nourishing moisturizer as well as being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and a germicidal antioxidant. According to Botanical.com, “Even after processing, beeswax still remains a biologically active product, retaining some anti-bacterial properties and also contains some vitamin A, which is necessary for normal cell development.”
The Mayo Clinic recommends lip balm made from beeswax for chapped lip care and prevention.
Our Aloe Vera Gel is USDA Certified Organic and soothes tired and dry skin conditions. Aloe Vera gel is a mixture of antibiotic, astringent, coagulating agent, pain inhibitor, cell growth stimulator and scar inhibitor.

Whether it’s the smoke and smog in the air you breathe or the beating rays of the sun, your skin deserves the best protection possible.

⦁ Helps cuts, bruises and burns heal faster

The Oil Cleansing Method
A Natural, Organic Skin Care Solution for all skin types
Oil in Skin Care
Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil, alone, will not bring you blemishes. Pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads, whiteheads…these are a result of several different factors including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and the buildup of these factors. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is not a malicious force to be reckoned with; it is there for the benefit of your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. It is naturally occurring. Not only does your natural oil help lubricate, it also heals, protects, and moisturizes your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing. Learning to work with your skin, not against it, will save you tremendously.
While we’re talking about clarifying your skin externally, we must also touch on the internal aspect. WATER! Drink no less than 8 glasses of water a day. If your skin has issues with blemishes, drink up! Water will help release and remove the toxins from within, lessening the load on your skin to push the toxins out. Carry a bottle of water around with you throughout the day so water is always available.
The Basics of Cleansing with Oil
The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. The steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed. Should you need it, the smallest drop of the same oil formula patted over damp skin will provide the necessary lubrication to keep your skin from over-compensating in oil production.
The Oil Cleansing Method
First and foremost, this is typically done in the evening, prior to bed. There should be no need for deep cleansing in the morning if you’re waking up with skin cleansed the night before. In the morning, a quick wipe with a warm washcloth should suffice. We don’t want to over cleanse our skin as this will serve only to irritate and cause more oil production. The objective of using this cleansing method is to deep clean while balancing our skins oil production at the same time.
⦁ You’ll need a soft washcloth, your oil blend, and hot, running water.
⦁ Pour a quarer size amount of oil into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together to warm the oil and smooth it over your face.
⦁ Begin massaging the oil into your face. This will remove sunscreen, makeup, dirt, and other impurities, so there is no need to use a makeup remover or wash your face prior to the massage. I’ve found that this removes even my stubborn waterproof mascara and concealer.
⦁ Using slow, firm motions across the skin, massage the oil deeply into your pores. Take your time and focus on your problem areas. You want the oil to work into your pores so that blackheads and impurities can be dissolved and steamed away.
⦁ As you’re massaging, let your mind drift off to something calming and breathe deeply. Take this time to relax and release some of the stress that your body is harboring. Sit down, breathe deeply, and take your time. Give the oil enough time to work on dissolving the impurities in your pores and give yourself enough time to unwind.
⦁ Once you’re satisfied that your pores are saturated and you’re feeling calm, pick up your washcloth and soak it in clean, steamy water. You want the water to be warm enough to further soften your pores and remove the oil. Cool water will not soften your pores, nor will it remove the oil efficiently. We’re not scalding our skin, we’re steaming to coax our pores to release the oil carrying the impurities. We’re essentially steaming our skin as an esthetician would, but without the luxury of a steam machine.
⦁ Hold the washcloth to cover your face. Allow it to stay until it cools. You will feel your pores softening and releasing the impurities. Wipe the oil gently away and rinse the washcloth well in hot, running water. Hold the washcloth to your face again, allowing it to cool. Wipe gently, rinse well, and repeat two or three more times. Avoid any temptation to scrub, as you’ll find it’s completely unnecessary and your skin will be soft, smooth, and free of flakes without the additional manual exfoliation and irritation that will result. Impurities, dead skin cells, and bacteria will be gently swept away.
⦁ Have no fear of the oil, as the steamy washcloth will remove it. The castor oil, though it is an oil, will help with the removal of the other oils, as well. It is our main cleansing oil and is easily removed with warm water.
⦁ Follow with Age Defence Cream if necessary

⦁ Cocoa butter has been called the ultimate moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats known, and melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin. Cocoa butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture.
⦁ Coconut Oil is good for several skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

Eye & Face Serum ~ with the anti -aging properties of Sea Buckthorn and Argan Oil
This is an all liquid serum to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, scarring, dark circles, and puffy bags under the eyes.
Benefits of Sea Buckthorn:
Sea buckthorn’s impressive nutrient mix brings a unique set of benefits. Used cosmetically, this miracle fruit supports:
Sun protection – Russian cosmonauts made use of sea buckthorn’s anti-radiant properties in their space expeditions where the lack of atmosphere and closer proximity to the sun leave you vulnerable to the full force of its radiation.
Anti-aging – Antioxidants such as Vitamin E, A, E, C, beta-carotene, and of course the coveted Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) help combat wrinkles, dryness, and other symptoms of aging or neglected skin.
Dry and irritated skin – Sea buckthorn restores skin’s natural omega-7 stores, providing nourishment, healing, and moisture. It is commonly used to fight many common skin conditions and prevent tissue damage.
Hair, skin, nails – The elusive Omega-7 is vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair, and nails. It nourishes the mucous membranes and sea buckthorn as a whole promotes cell tissue regeneration.
Argan Oil benefits:
The triterpenoids naturally found in argan oil offer amazing health benefits for skin including the ability to stunt the growth of warts, treat some forms of dermatitis, break down tumorous skin cells, and fade scars. Also, the antioxidants and fatty acids found in argan oil may also help with the treatment of mild acne and with the healing of acne-related scarring.
Argan oil is comprised of roughly 80% fatty acids which work wonders to erase signs of premature aging. Regular use of argan oil has been proven to reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles, as well as to fade age spots by restoring skin’s youthful elasticity and by increasing the regenerative rate of healthy skin cells.
Anti-oxidants in argan oil help to protect skin, hair, and nails from damage caused by UV radiation. Applying argan oil to UV damaged skin can actually fade sun spots and heal the dry leathery skin that results from over-exposure to UV by promoting the regeneration of healthy cells.
Eternal Bee formulates the Age Defence Facial Cream & Face Serum with the anti-aging and healing properties of Argan Oil.
