Beeswax Hand Creme with Almond Milk by Burt's Bees
Burt's Bees - Beeswax Hand Creme with Almond Milk - 2 oz. (57 g)
Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme provides help for hard-working hands. Hands exposed to heat, cold, dirt and harsh detergents can get rough and dry. Keep your soft and smooth with super emollient almond creme.
How Beeswax Hand Creme Works
Considering all that your hands are exposed to every day, it’s not surprising that the skin on your hands ages eight times faster than the skin on your face. Sweet almond oil, aloe and vitamin E help keep them soft and smooth. This 100% natural hand cream has a sweet fragrance that makes it a favorite of everyone from moms to mechanics.
Collecting Beeswax On Nature's Schedule
Bees know how to do their job, so Burt's Bees leaves them alone and minds their own beeswax until the time is right. That's how they ensure their beeswax cultivating process protects the bees' normal production cycle. Bees produce a wax honeycomb where they raise their young and store honey and pollen. When it's full, they cap off the honeycomb and move on to build another hive. Then, and not before, is when Burt's cultivates the beeswax, ensuring the normal cycle of nature.
Sweet Almond Oil: Prunus amygdalus. Cold pressed from the dried kernels of the almond tree, this medium-weight oil is rich in olein glyceride oleic and linoleic acid, proteins and vitamin D, and is excellent for the skin and nails. It is an outstanding emollient known for its ability to soften and re-condition skin and help balance skin's moisture loss and absorption. It soothes dry skin and irritated areas and is extremely nourishing, particularly when used regularly.
Burt's Bees Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products hypoallergenic?
There is no defined methodology to test for allergic reactions in beauty or personal care products, nor does the FDA regulate use of the term "hypoallergenic." Consequently, Burt's Bees does not position their products as hypoallergenic. A list of ingredients for each product is available on individual product information pages on this site.
Are your products safe for pregnant women to use?
Burt's Bees recommends that any expectant mother check with her physician before changing her skin care routine with their products, or any other line of products.
How long will my Burt's Bees products stay fresh and what is the best way to store them?
Burt's Bees products are made with natural ingredients. They purposely present our products in smaller portions so you finish them while their ingredients are still fresh and providing their maximum effectiveness. As such, we recommend you store creams and oils in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Creams may be stored in their cartons for extra protection.
Where are Burt's Bees products made?
Over 95% of Burt's Bees products are made right in their own manufacturing plant in Durham, NC. The rest are made by other respectable American manufacturers.
Do you test on animals and do your products contain animal-derived ingredients?
Burt's Bees does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly, milk and carmine.
I am allergic to bees. Can I still use your products?
Burt's Bees does not use actual bee venom in their products – only bee by products such as honey, beeswax, royal jelly and honey powder. However, if you are allergic to bee by-products, then Burt's Bees does not suggest using their products. They recommend that you contact your health care provider when changing your skin care regimen to find out which products are best for you.

About Burt's Bees
At Burt’s Bees, they scour the good earth to find the most natural, effective ingredients to put in our products. To Burt’s Bees, the word “natural” means only one thing. It means, “harvested from nature.” And they adhere to that definition like the strictest of school teachers. There are ingredients that you will never find in any Burt’s Bees product. Things like petroleum which can be toxic. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which is a harsh, aggressive ingredient used in certain beauty products. And when was the last time you saw a farmer growing Propylene Glycol? Rather than loading their products up with harsh chemicals or unnecessary fillers, they offer you only the good stuff.

The skin around my nails has cracked/peeled off less since using this product. Highly recommend it for those with dry skin. *Warning: Don't go near dogs after lubrication -- they like to lick it off* :)
This hand cream is my FAVORITE! I live in Colorado and it gets very dry here in the winter. My hands can even bleed. Not with this almond cream though. It makes your hands smooth AND they smell great. I put it on at night so it can really soak in. Highly recommended!
I love the smell of this and it really seals in the moisture and softens hands. A little goes a long way.
Love the smell of this Almond Milk hand crème and the feel of it. Not greasy feeling and leaves my hands feeling great!
Using for quite some time now. I only apply this at bedtime to give it time to absorb while I sleep as it is very rich. Seems to do the trick and smells good.
