How Rich and Repairing Body Butter Works
Burt's Bees' richest body butter provides long-lasting moisture, leaving skin naturally soft, smooth and supple. Emollient cocoa butter and macadamia nut oil nourish the skin, while sunflower, rosehip and borage seed oils combine to repair, restore and promote healthy skin renewal, naturally.
Cocoa Butter: Triglycerides of fatty acids made from the beans of the cacao tree (Theobroma Cacao). Cocoa butter is a superb emollient that softens and protects chapped skin, relieves irritation and diminishes signs of wrinkling and stretch marks. It is also helpful as a binder or thickener in natural cosmetic formulas where chemical thickeners are not used. It has a sweet chocolate smell.
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.
