Only the Purest for Baby's Skin
Babies are blessed with skin that hasn't weathered any of the damage caused by years of exposure to the elements. But that also means this skin is very delicate. That's why it's important to cleanse and moisturize this precious skin with only the mildest, purest soaps, lotions, oils and powders, like Burt's Bees' natural skin care products for baby. Instead of using ingredients that can be potentially harmful to your baby's health and the environment, they use gentle natural ingredients like these to ensure your family's well-being:
- Sweet almond oil instead of mineral oil, which is often used in baby oils. Mineral oil, a petro chemical, is a non-renewable by-product of crude oil with potential human health risks.
- Cornstarch instead of talc, which is often used in baby powders. Talc, if inhaled, can reach even the smallest area of the lungs.
- 100% natural preservatives instead of parabens. Some parabens are potential endrocrine disruptors, meaning that they may interfere with the body's hormone system. These natural ingredients help baby stay soft and safe.
Sweet Almond Oil: Prunus amygdalus. Cold pressed from the dried kernels of the almond tree, this medium-weight oil is rich in olein glyceride oleic and linoleic acid, proteins and vitamin D, and is excellent for the skin and nails. It is an outstanding emollient known for its ability to soften and re-condition skin and help balance skin's moisture loss and absorption. It soothes dry skin and irritated areas and is extremely nourishing, particularly when used regularly.
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.
Where are Burt's Bees products made?
Over 95% of Burt's Bees products are made right in their own manufacturing plant in Durham, NC. The rest are made by other respectable American manufacturers.
Do you test on animals and do your products contain animal-derived ingredients?
Burt's Bees does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly, milk and carmine.
I am allergic to bees. Can I still use your products?
Burt's Bees does not use actual bee venom in their products – only bee by products such as honey, beeswax, royal jelly and honey powder. However, if you are allergic to bee by-products, then Burt's Bees does not suggest using their products. They recommend that you contact your health care provider when changing your skin care regimen to find out which products are best for you.
