Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment

Relieve Dry Skin

One of my biggest gripes about winter is how dry my hands get. I’m not just talking about a few flakes. I get seriously chapped and cracked skin. 

I’ve tried lots of hand creams in the past (some good, some ok, some terrible), but I’ve yet to land on one I can’t live without.

Lately, I’ve been giving Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment a try. It’s celebrated widely for being a fast-acting treatment for eczema and psoriasis. I’ve had eczema in the past. I don’t right now, so I haven’t tried it for that. But I have been using it on my dry hands, and I really like the results I’m seeing.

This product goes on smooth, and it immediately feels like it’s protecting my skin. After applying it, my hands feel so much softer. I like how it doesn’t leave a greasy feel behind. I can immediately touch things without depositing an oily film on them.

Waxelene Technology

I hadn’t heard of the technology Waxelene uses, but it’s interesting. A patented aeration is employed, which infuses air particles into the ointment. Because of this process you only need to use a small amount of the product—even on a large area. A waterproof barrier forms on the skin with no clogged pores.

Waxelene can be used on dry skin, cuts, rashes, chapped lips, scars, calluses, cuticles, and more. It has just four effective ingredients: organic beeswax, organic soy oil, organic rosemary oil, and natural vitamin E. The product is safe for infants and children. 

All of Waxelene's packaging is 100 percent recyclable and BPA free. Two percent of their sales go toward the purchase of plastic offsets.

A 3-ounce travel jar of Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment retails for $26.99.

I think I’ve found a keeper with this one!
