How Herbal Insect Repellent Works
Burt's Bees' 100% natural blend of bug-fighting oils repels even the most stubborn of pests. Rosemary, Lemongrass, and Citronella oils mix with 5 other oils that bugs hate, creating an all natural solution for keeping them away.
Rosemary Oil: Rosmarinus officinalis. Rosemary is an aromatic shrub with scaly bark and leathery, needle-like leaves yielding a pungent pine-like aroma with a woody, camphor note. Its oil has been used for centuries as a physical and mental stimulant and an astringent healer treating muscle soreness. It stimulates cell renewal and, in beauty products, is used to clear acne and blemishes, improve circulation and can reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and varicose veins. Rosemary has a long history as an ingredient in hair care, as it normalizes excessive oil secretions and improves most scalp problems, notably dandruff, as well as conditioning the scalp and stimulating hair growth.
Burt's Bees™ Outdoor… Discover. Experience. Protect.
Burt's Bees has created a special line of Outdoor products that treat and protect skin naturally, so you can make the most of the great outdoors while also helping sustain the environment. Burt's Bees Outdoor products' eco-friendly formulas and packaging care for you and the environment:
- Natural cleansers made from coconut and sunflower oils instead of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS is a synthetic ingredient found in many face, hair and body products. It is used as a foaming agent, and has no inherent moisturizing properties. Furthermore, SLS does not meet the standards of the Natural Product Association.
- Beeswax and Japan Fruit Wax instead of petrolatum. Petrolatum is often found in over-the-counter skin care products and is a non-renewable hydrocarbon made from crude oil.
- Titanium dioxide instead of oxybenzone. Oxybenzone is a synthetic active commonly found in sunscreens.
- Sustainable packaging instead of non-recyclable, non-portable, or non-usable packaging that is still often used today. Burt's Bees' packaging protects the environment by using sustainable packaging that is portable, reusable or recyclable.
Discover the protecting power of natural ingredients on your next outdoor adventure!
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.
