This is the most eco-friendliest skincare brand that I have ever found in the beauty industry. Some brands claim to be paraben free but they also include other ingredients that are not so great for the skin. Parabens have been a huge issue in terms of cosmetics and skincare so if your concerned go check out my post all about parabens. You just gotta note that if something is that great… you gotta pay the price for it. Products can range from $4 – $25 so it isn’t the cheapest thing you can find at a drugstore. But for the most natural product you can get, its worth the price. AND they don’t test on animals.
Before I get to the products….I want to kinda mention about the brand in general. There are lots on their website so I’m going to give you the low-down here. It may be overwhelming to go thru and read everything on their site unless you’re like me and have a bijillion hours on your hands which not a lot of people do.
If you don’t already know, Burt’s Bees are made from natural ingredients. Natural ingredients are said to be better for your skin, senses, and well-being. And of course better for the environment. You will never see Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates or Petrochemicals in any of their products. “We firmly believe that natural ingredients must come from a renewable/plentiful resource found in nature, with absolutely no petroleum compounds. This includes ingredients found in fauna (animal), flora (plant), and minerals. Rest assured, though, the animal part is substances like beeswax and honey.” — according to Burt’s Bees.

Their goal is to be the greenest personal care company on earth by 2020 with all their products 100% natural, 100% biodegradable, and operating on 100% renewable energy. Currently, some of their packaging are shrink wrap free. They have eliminated 1800 miles of shrink wrap that can wrap around the Statue of Liberty 100 times. WOW… that a lot of bad for the environment. Burt’s Bees also started “introduction of TerraSkin™ Wraps, an environmentally friendly, treeless and bleach-free paper alternative we use to package most of our bar soaps. It has a lower absorption rate so we can use 20-30 percent less ink when printing. And because it’s stronger and water resistant, it makes for less waste.”
Burt’s Bees also partners with over 40 organizations one being Habitat for Humanity to give back to the community.
Below are only some of the products including reviews by me:
