Discover the Wonder of Willow Bark
Salicylic Acid occurs naturally in the bark of the Black Willow tree (Salix nigra). The role of bark is to protect the tree by regulating temperature, moisture, nutrients and attacks by environmental stressors. Your skin has a similar function — it's the body's largest organ and it serves as a protective barrier. That's why Burt's Bees went straight to the bark to find a natural source of salicylic acid. Who needs synthetics when you can harness the wonders of nature?

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a good facial wash with a very mild pleasant scent. I would recommend this facial wash if you are just looking for a nice mild cleanser that leaves your skin soft. I would not recommend it if you are looking to clear up acne. It didn't do a thing in that regard.
Gentle scrub, easy on the skin, and helps with acne. I have not noticed much help with my pores through. I've always had a problem with large pores and blackhead, and this product doesn't seem to help much with that problem.
