How Thoroughly Therapeutic Body Butter Works
Natural mango and shea butters team up with honey and aloe to provide deep therapy for restoring and protecting seriously dry skin on rough areas like your knees and elbows.
Shea Butter: This natural fat obtained from the fruit of the karite tree is a valuable, nourishing addition to moisturizers for the reduction of wrinkles and to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against environmental aging. Shea butter is known to increase local capillary circulation, which in turn increases tissue re-oxygenation.
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 Bees 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 products are made with natural ingredients.
