Waxelene’s patent-pending aeration process gives it a silky smooth texture that won’t clog pores. Committed to the environment and healthy living, the makers of Waxelene endeavor to become more sustainable every day. From using natural and organic ingredients, to packaging in recyclable glass jars (no plastic!), to implementing energy-efficient practices, Waxelene is striving to do its part to prepare for a petroleum-free future.

Waxelene can be purchased online, as well at select Whole Foods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Natural Grocers, Pharmaca, and CVS/pharmacy stores.
