Our Approach to Skin Care

by Burt’s Bees | 2 min read

At Burt’s Bees we celebrate nature, natural ingredients, and the cycles of renewal that happen in the natural world. We believe in empowering people to care for their skin so that it can be its most beautiful, season after season.

Purposeful Formulations

When a formula is packed with natural, nutrient-rich ingredients that each serve a purpose (even better, multiple purposes), skin can reach its full beautiful potential. We use intelligent ingredients that work together for radiant results. That means no fillers, no fluff, no false promises.

Nature as a Laboratory

We develop skin care solutions rooted in nature’s ability to restore and protect itself over time. Mother Nature is the original R&D expert. After all, plants have had billions of years to develop their own chemistry, designed to maintain vitality in the face of changing environmental conditions. Your skin weathers similar challenges over the course of its life. We study those very ingredients and use their replenishing powers to help restore your skin’s natural beauty.

Skin Nutrition

Your skin is your largest organ. Just like the rest of our bodies, it requires a variety of nutrients to thrive. We select nutrient-rich ingredients—packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and other phytonutrients—to address the needs of a particular skin concern in each collection.

Balanced Skin Cycle

It takes about 28 days for new skin cells to mature and reach the top layer of your skin. Our formulas work with your skin’s natural pace of renewal by nourishing emerging cells and supporting the hydro-lipid barrier. We believe nature’s moisturizers most effectively simulate the skin’s natural oils to ensure a strong barrier function. We rigorously test our treatment formulas at 4 and 8 weeks (2 full cycles) to ensure we see balanced results and improvement over time.
