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 uses it because it is a great humectant, honey easily attracts and retains water, making it a perfect skin and hair moisturizer.
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.

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.
