Burt's Bees - Beeswax & Royal Jelly Eye Creme - 0.25 oz. (7 g)
Burt's Bees Beeswax and Royal Jelly Eye Cream is an eye treatment fit for a queen. Burt's Bees Royal Jelly Eye Creme will nourish and smoothe the delicate skin around the eyes, and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while providing long lasting moisturizing protection.
How Beeswax and Royal Jelly Eye Creme Works
Royal jelly, which is fed to the queen bee to extend her life, is packed with 134 nutrients, including 17 amino acids, B-vitamins and vitamins A, C, D and K. Here, it's blended with rich beeswax, soothing aloe vera gel, apricot kernel oil and vitamin E to create a nourishing cream that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and reduces puffiness in the delicate skin around your eyes.
Beeswax: A natural wax made by bees in the cell walls of honeycombs, this substance is a natural emulsifier used in cosmetics. It adds a wonderful natural smell and color to products and helps to seal and protect the skin when used in moisturizing formulas.
Royal Jelly for Beautiful Skin
Royal jelly is made by worker bees and fed to the queen in her first days of life to ensure her growth and fertility. It's considered to be one of the world's most nutrient-rich substances, packed with 134 nutrients, including essential amino acids, minerals and Vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, C, E along with Biotin, Niacin and Folic Acid. No wonder it helps the queen grow to 40 times the size of worker bees and live 50 times longer.
This natural ingredient is widely used around the world, where it is known for its ability to enhance skin texture and smoothness. Burt's Bees uses royal jelly in many of their natural skin care products because it is known to help enhance skin's texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Royal jelly has also been found to have antioxidant properties and be beneficial to over-all health and anti-aging programs.
To ensure that the bees and their hive are never harmed by Burt's Bees' harvesting practices, they source royal jelly from only the queen larvae. Their food source is never compromised during the harvesting process because these larvae are continually stocked with the substance at a rate much faster than they could ever consume it. That means both you and the queen can reap the benefits of royal jelly.
