Body Paraffin is body treatment using a white or coloriess soft, solid wax. It's made from saturated hydrocarbons. It's often used in skin-softening salon and spa treatments on the hands, cuticies, and feet because it's coloriess, tasteless and odorless. It can also be used to provide pain relief to sore joints and muscles. Cosmetically, parafin wax is often applied to the hands and feet. The wax is a natural emollient, helping make skin supple and soft. When applied to the skin, it adds moisture and continues to boost the moisture levels of the skin after the treatment is complete. It can also help open pores and remove dead skin cells. That may help make the skin look fresher and feel smoother.
