Burt’s Bees: “Sensitive” care for sensitive skin
When using the right products, sensitive skin can be beautiful and radiant. Developed especially for sensitive skin, Burt’s Bees “Sensitive” range contains gentle products made with natural ingredients. Perfect for a soothing facial or calming mask, Burt’s Bees will;
- Gently cleanse
- Improve skin elasticity
- Stimulate cell regeneration
- Strengthen the natural protective layer of skin cells
All products are clinically tested (not tested on animals) ensuring all products are perfect for everyday use, gentle enough to moisturize, without causing redness or irritation.
Natural ingredients; beneficial and effective
The star ingredient used in Burt’s Bees formula is extract of cotton, proven to soften sensitive skin and increase elasticity, thus reducing the appearance of redness for a radiant and more even complexion. Cotton extract contains seven oligosaccharides (containing sugar) which have the ability to retain water, allowing gentle hydration of skin cells. The oligosaccharides also stimulate the production of keratin. Keratin is the key component of the last layer of the skin, it makes the skin supple and stabilizes cells against external attack. Keratin production is essential in strengthening the structure and integrity of the epidermis, preventing harmful substances that may cause redness and irritation, to penetrate the skin.
All natural ingredients used in Burt’s Bees are selected for their unique properties; rice extract, intensely hydrates whilst aloe vera gently soothes irritated skin. Extract of wormwood found in Eyebright eye cream has an anti-inflammatory property, reducing redness and the appearance of puffiness under the eyes.
All Burt’s Bees “Sensitive” products are:
- dermatologically tested;
- free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or petrochemicals;
- made with 99% natural ingredients;
- developed without animal testing;
- presented in recyclable packaging made from recycled materials
About Burt’s Bees:
In 1984, Burt Shavitz, a former New York journalist, decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the city in exchange for the modest life of a beekeeper, living in harmony and at one with nature. Little did he know, that 25 years later, consumers world wide would be using skin care products bearing his name… With his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for nature, Burt has become a landmark in the field of natural skincare products. Following a successful meeting with Roxanne Quimby, an idea was born: to sell candles made of beeswax, a byproduct of the manufacturing process of honey. Growing from humble beginnings, Burt and Roxanne developed their business launching skin care products made with natural ingredients and within a few years, the brand Burt’s Bees has become a market leader in natural skin care products in the United States and is expanding rapidly into the international market.
Products – natural, certified and award winning
Burt’s Bees offer over 150 products of which half are 100% natural, and they are currently working towards 100% natural certification for all their products. The products are certified by the “Natural Products Association” (NPA). In order to gain certification: a product must contain at least 95% natural ingredients, meaning renewable resources found in nature (flora, fauna, mineral) and must not contain parabens, sulphates, phthalates or petrochemicals. Burt’s Bees products are not tested on animals and have won many awards in both Europe and the United States. In Switzerland, Burt’s Bees have been nominated for the “Grand Prix of the EDELWEISS Cosmetics 2012″.
