natural ingredients for beauty and skin care

Lemon: There’s a reason why lemon is such a common beauty ingredient. The oil pressed from a lemon’s peel is believed to add shine to hair and nails, balance oil in the skin and uplift the senses—which is why it’s the star of Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream.

Pomegranate: The antioxidant properties of pomegranates help protect skin from environmental stress by fighting damaging free radicals. Brush on a bit of the superfruit with Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil.

Peppermint: Oil from the peppermint plant can soothe and stimulate. To help relax sore muscles and energize your spirit, rub on Peppermint Foot Lotion and Fabulously Fresh Peppermint & Rosemary Body Wash.

Aloe: Famous for its emollient and moisturizing properties that help soothe irritated skin, aloe gel is the star of the Soothingly Sensitive Aloe & Buttermilk Lotion.

Sunflower: In 2003, Burt’s Bees added color and shimmer to the lip balm formula for the first time, creating Lip Shimmers. They used sunflower oil to give an extra boost of ingredients like vitamin E and A and essential fatty acids.

Coconut: Sweet and scented, coconut oil serves as a protective layer on the skin and helps moisturize dry skin. Try Coconut Foot Cream.

Almonds: Oil found in almonds (and the Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream) helps soften and recondition the skin.

Honey: Last, but certainly not least! The honey from hardworking bees has been used for centuries in beauty products for its healthy dose of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. No wonder why it’s a key ingredient in the Milk & Honey Body Lotion, Honey Lip Balm and the Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub.
