What is Bee-Based Skincare?

Why choose bee-friendly skincare?

There’s a good reason that bee-sourced ingredients are at the heart of our brand’s heritage – their nourishing and calming properties make them a skincare staple. Containing ethically sourced beeswax and honey, Burt’s Bees products are combined with natural oils and butters to create simple but effective skincare that’s kind to nature and kind to your skin. 

Benefits of honey

While it tastes great and is the perfect topping for your morning porridge, honey works wonders when applied topically to your skin. It’s packed with antioxidants and anti-microbial properties which help to nourish, protect and repair. It’s also a natural humectant, so it helps your skin to absorb and retain moisture.  

The benefits of honey bee skincare don’t stop there. Raw honey is also a natural exfoliator, helping to remove dead cells from the surface of your skin to reveal a soft, smooth complexion. Don’t just take our word for it, try our Conditioning Lip Scrub with Exfoliating Honey Crystals. It gently exfoliates and conditions dry lips, helping your lips to feel beautifully smooth and perfectly primed for lip balm or lipstick application. 

Honey is a natural moisturiser, which nourishes and soothes skin to leave it feeling supple and hydrated. The formula of our Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion combines Milk and Honey with Coconut and Grape Seed Oils for moisturisation that lasts for up to 24 hours.

Beeswax for skin

You may be less familiar with beeswax (we definitely wouldn’t recommend putting it in your porridge) but it has all the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and moisturising properties of honeyBeeswax forms a protective barrier over the skin’s surface, locking in moisture and preventing damage from external aggressors. Is it any wonder why Burt was such a belover? 

Our Beeswax Lip Balm is perfect for daily use, as it conditions and moisturises, leaving lips feeling beautifully soft and supple. 

For your little one, our Baby 100% Natural Diaper Ointment is formulated with beeswax to treat and prevent baby’s nappy rash. It protects and soothes your baby’s bottom for long-lasting, tear-free comfort.
