Skincare: Using The Right Ingredients

In order to support skin’s detoxifying and regenerative processes, using the right products is so important. We take a look at the significance of using products with natural ingredients such as beeswax and honey, and how these benefit the skin. Learn more about Burt’s Bees lip balm ingredients, as well as the ingredients in some of our other hero products, and why we choose to use natural formulas. 

Go all natural 

Skin can become easily irritated when it’s exposed to unnatural ingredients. We recommend making sure you understand and recognise the ingredients listed on the back of your skincare products. 

Burts Bees lip balm ingredients include beeswax and vitamin E, which condition and nourish the skin to leave it feeling beautifully soft. A hint of peppermint oil provides a refreshing tingle and a lovely fresh, natural scent. The Trio Tin Gift Set is the perfect way to keep your lips hydrated all day long. Containing Burt’s Bees lip balms in three naturally moisturising flavours, your lips will always be soft and smooth.  

Honey is often present in the list of Burt’s Bees hand cream ingredients. Whilst honey’s high concentration of antioxidants protects the skin from environmental stressors, its naturally moisturising properties hydrate and nourish skin, without leaving it feeling greasy. The Botanical Blend Nourishing Hand and Lip Kit in Lavender & Honey will hydrate your dry hands and lips, leaving them feeling gorgeously soft all day long. 

Better for your skin, better for the environment

Natural products are not only kinder to our skin, but also to the environment. The manufacturing process of non-natural skincare products often involves the release of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere, whereas when natural ingredients are extracted, there are no alterations to or pollution of the environment.  

Burt’s Bees products are consciously crafted with nutrient-rich natural ingredients to nourish and revitalise skin. All of our products are of over 95% natural origin.  

To benefit from nature’s naturally moisturising ingredients, we recommend the Burt’s Natural Lips to Tips Kit, for head-to-toe hydration and nourishment. To give an all-natural gift (or treat yourself!) for less than £15, we recommend Burt’s Essential Edit. Containing 4 trial-size products, this collection of natural essentials will remove makeup and dirt and moisturise dry skin, lips and hands.
