Beeswax Used for Shoe Polish, Psoriasis and Eczema

The Shoeshine Man's Polished Patter
By Phoebe Falconer, New Zealand Herald, 12/15/2008

There's no longer any excuse for dirty or leaky footwear in Auckland. The Shoeshine Man is in town.

Larry Woods has set up his stall in Albert St, outside a barber shop. He'll polish, or at least wax, your shoes for free, and, also for free, give you his line of patter.

His product, he says, will protect and waterproof not only your shoes, but your furniture, your boat, your car. It will help your psoriasis, eczema and cracked heels. You can even use it to put twirly bits in your hair.

The man from San Francisco with the blond hair has lived in New Zealand for 27 years. He has run businesses, including fashion shops in High St and Kingsland, and a meat company supplying bacon beef to Watties.

But now he sells a mix of beeswax and jojoba, made in St Heliers using beeswax from Taihape...

The exact cause of psoriasis is unclear and there is no cure for this common skin condition. However, there are events that are known triggers that bring on or worsen the condition. Knowing and avoiding these triggering factors and your chance of successfully dealing with your psoriasis will improve.
