Beeswax Not Petrolatum
Burt's Bees was founded using natural goodness that comes from the hive, like beeswax and honey. That's how Burt's Bees developed their world famous lip balm, and a host of other lip care products, with natural ingredients like beeswax, not synthetic ones, like petrolatum. Burt's uses beeswax instead of petrolatum mainly because, quite simply, it works. Beeswax has been used since ancient times as a natural moisturizer. It's occlusive, which means that it seals and protects your lips, locking in moisture, naturally.

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.
