Burt’s Bees has been a long-time favourite of lip balm lovers, but did you know their products are made from 97% natural ingredients? Plus the majority of their packaging is made from recycled content! They’ve also trimmed excess packaging by as much as 50% on some of their packaging. Burt’s Bees has even committed themselves to a policy of sending zero waste to landfills at their plant – a big move to help lighten our carbon footprint.

Skin breaks out when it’s out of balance. Everything you eat, stress, hormones, medications, smog, the makeup and skincare you use, even the household products you clean with can throw skin off its game.
Considering that your body absorbs 60% of what you put on it, it’s important to know what you’re applying to your skin and how it triggers breakouts.
These tips can get you back on track:
Use products with clean formulas and you’ll most likely see an improvement in your skin. There may be a transition period as your skin detoxes as its natural balance is restored, but it’s temporary…and worth it!
