Milk nourishes while honey helps to soften skin; plus, coconut and grape seed oils and vitamin E deliver beneficial nutrients to the skin. Burt's Bees dermatologist-tested formula absorbs quickly but stays with you all day and night.
What's the Buzz About Honey?
Honey is created by bees as a food source for times when other sources are scarce. It is made up of a mixture of sugars and other compounds, and contains many vitamins and essential minerals including B-vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, copper, iron and magnesium, as well as several different amino acids.
Honey's antibacterial properties have made it popular for centuries. Considered an ancient remedy for the treatment of infected wounds, honey has recently been 'rediscovered' by the medical profession. Studies have shown honey's effectiveness in rapidly clearing infection from wounds, with no adverse effects to slow the healing process. There is even evidence to suggest that honey may actively promote healing. But Burt's Bees uses it because it is a great humectant, honey easily attracts and retains water, making it a perfect skin and hair moisturizer.
Milk Powder: Solid residue which remains when water is removed from defatted cow's milk. Milk has been used for centuries as a natural, soothing skin cleanser and softener.

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.

This natural lotion has a pleasant vanilla scent and absorbs and moisturizes well. However, it is quite runny for a body lotion.
To say 1 was fair is an overstatement. Its not the same formula as the former at all. It smells like rubber, doesn't hydrate well, is smaller by 2 ounces. The packaging isnt reusable either! I hate this. This new formula is terrible. How could anyone give this a good review? Just check out the cumulative ratings on amazon.com and burtsbees.com
Most people hate it and want the old formula back.
I have been using this lotion for years. I am sad that they reformulated and changed the smell. I used to get compliments all the time. Still a good product but could be better.
Highly scented but highly emollient.
I actually use this on my face. I have oily and aging skin and this lotion is perfect for me. It has a light scent and non-greasy feel; it absorbs quickly and keeps my facial skin soft and supple.
