How Peppermint Foot Lotion Works
Peppermint oil and menthol invigorate tired feet, while parsley leaf oil and witch hazel deodorize and soothe naturally. Enriched with botanical oils and vitamin E, this lotion deeply moisturizes and protects to eliminate rough, dry skin.
Peppermint Oil: Mentha piperita. This refreshing, reviving, fragrant oil or extract is derived from the Mediterranean peppermint plant. Peppermint herb is valued for its cooling, pain relieving and antiseptic effect in bath and facial treatments. When prepared in a carrier lotion, it is useful for minor skin irritation and inflammation. Peppermint oil contains menthol, known for its ability to open breathing passages and settle upset stomachs. Peppermint oil is used extensively to flavor candy, chewing gum and toothpaste and, in cosmetics, is used to cleanse and tone. It purifies sluggish skin and pores and is suitable for use on oily skin, acne and blackheads.
Natural Ingredients Make All the Difference
It's long been held that you're only as healthy as what you put in your body. Burt's Bees believes the same goes for what you put on it. Since you are a part of nature, it only makes sense that natural products work better because they work in harmony with your body. Natural ingredients nurture your skin and hair with wholesome nutrients that your body chemistry is familiar with. Your skin can more easily metabolize natural ingredients over synthetic ones.
What's more, your skin is your largest organ, and what you put on it gets absorbed into your body. In fact, studies show that 60% of the ingredients you put on your body get absorbed into it. Synthetic chemical ingredients with a potential human health risk can have potentially harmful effects. It's enough to make you think twice about letting your skin and hair soak up these synthetic ingredients. That's why at Burt's Bees, they use natural ingredients and natural processes to ensure that the products they make for you, the consumers, are the safest, most effective and most natural they can possibly be, to help maximize your well-being.
Burt's Bees Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.
