Olive oil also contains at least four different antioxidants, which can help neutralize damaging free radicals that can lead to skin aging and skin cancer. Olive oil is purported to have regenerative and restructuring virtues and has great skin moisturizing properties - it has been the skin oil of choice for millenia!
Beeswax, even after removed from the beehive, remains a biologically active product retaining anti-bacterial properties. It also contains vitamin A, which is essential for human cell development. Throughout time, people have used it as an antiseptic and for healing wounds.
Aloe vera promotes skin healing, and has anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Aloe vera also contains a rich source of amino acids, vitamins A, C, F, B, niacin and traces of Vitamin B12.
Lime oil can be helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and poor circulation, as well as for reducing the cottage cheese look of cellulite, and has an astringent and toning action to clear oily skin and acne, and also helps with insect bites and cuts. The lime fragrance is excellent for lifting depression and energizing a tired mind.
These two ingredients together make up less than 1% of the cream: Stearic acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid. I use it to stabilize the cream emulsion. Borax is a naturally occurring mineral. It is used to partly saponify the oils in the cream, and as a natural preservative.
Some Etsy shops "make" their salves, lotions and soaps by purchasing them in bulk, and then just adding some fragrance and labeling it as their own. You can spot these items by looking at the ingredients - if it looks like some crazy chemistry experiment, guess what? That's because it is! You may be OK with that, but I won't slather the only skin I've got with chemicals, plastics, and petroleum products. Blech! Lee's Bees products are made by me, in my kitchen, in small batches from scratch, with fresh, pure, natural ingredients.
Honest and Natural. That's my promise.

Buyer feedback about this item:
"This smells amazing, I wasn't sure how the scent would be when I ordered but I love it. The formula is really nice as well. A little goes a long way and it feels really nice and moisturizes well. I also feel that the moisture is long lasting. This lotion is a good value and I will probably repurchase in the future."
