What's in your skin care products?

What's in your skin care products?

It is no secret that at w.o.d.welder we pride ourselves on the quality of our ingredients and the effectiveness of our products. Put simply, if we wouldn't want it on our skin we don't use it! 

We are asked all the time: "what is the difference between a Beeswax base and a Petroleum Jelly base?" Among many reasons for choosing Beeswax over Petroleum Jelly is the simple fact that Beeswax is a 100% organic product made from honey bees and Petroleum Jelly is a by-product of the oil industry. If you had to choose between the two, which one would you pick?

For the sake of education, here's a few reasons to stay away from petrolatum, or petroleum jellies.

  • Petroleum can't be metabolized. 
  • Petroleum doesn't nourish your skin, it just sits on top of it. Which leads us to our next point.
  • Petroleum doesn't allow your skin to breath. 

Skin cannot keep it's elasticity and health without the ability to "breath", but without the ability to block out harmful bacteria from open wounds what good would any healing skin care product be? In comes Lanolin. The chosen ingredient of w.o.d.welder to provide a protective and breathable barrier over cuts and abrasions. You can read more on this magic ingredient below.

When we set forth to rid the fitness world of poor skincare and bloody hands, we chose to do it the all natural way using ingredients that you didn't need a degree in chemistry to understand. We take pride in this fact, and have put together some further research for you guys about the benefits of all natural products. ENJOY!
