What Makes Intense Hydration Different?
At Burt’s Bees, we’re always asking, “What is nature doing well and how can we source it sustainably?”
For example, we were pretty excited when nature let us in on Clary Sage, a tenacious little plant that has learned how to not just survive, but thrive in the dry windswept hills of the Mediterranean.
It’s featured in Intense Hydration because of its exceptional ability to trap and retain moisture. The resulting formula is not some wussy layer that softens for all of 5 minutes.
97% of the women who tried Intense Hydration Day Lotion said their skin showed an increase in hydration after 1 hour and continued to feel that way even after 4 hours.
93% of women who used the Night Cream for 3 weeks said their skin felt intensely hydrated.
100% of those who tested the entire regimen - that’s right, every last one of them - confirmed their skin felt hydrated after 6 weeks.
The facts speak for themselves. But they don’t speak to sustainability, which for us is more than skin deep.
Our source for Clary Sage extract comes from an agricultural project outside Barcelona, whose goal is to preserve local aromatics and prevent urbanization. No small feat since real estate there is in high demand.
So that’s the story behind the plant that makes Intense Hydration possible. We appreciate your interest in it. We’re pretty sure your skin will appreciate it, too.
