Nurture your skin as nature intended with Burt’s Bees Mama Bee & Baby Bee ranges

Nurture your skin as nature intended with Burt’s Bees Mama Bee & Baby Bee ranges

November 2013

Burt’s Bees began with the humble Honey Bee over 25 years ago. Beekeeper, Burt Shavitz met artist, Roxanne Quimby, when she was hitchhiking in Maine, USA. Roxanne became intrigued by his story of honey bees and together they created a booming candle business that over time became a leading global natural personal care brand. Pioneering a new approach to beauty, Burt and Roxanne started making skin care products from natural ingredients that harness the outstanding power of bees, from the first beeswax lip balm to award-winning skin care.

Burt’s Bees has created the perfect range of bath-time and body care products for both new mothers and babies. These naturally nourishing products not only give you highly effective results, but are kind to your skin and to the environment. Being good to you and to the planet is what Burt’s Bees is all about. 




To care for baby’s delicate skin, the Baby Bee range includes 11 essential products made with natural moisturisers and natural emollients such as beeswax, to seal in moisture and help protect against external irritants.  All Baby Bee products undergo extensive paediatric testing (on babies between the ages of 3 months and 13 years) and are SLS, phthalate and paraben-free.



When it comes to bath time, try products made with natural ingredients such as oat flour, buttermilk, sunflower and coconut oil to care for baby’s skin. Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap (£4.99, 99g) is gentle and nourishing, leaving skin soft and silky. To ensure there are no tears at bath time, Baby Bee Fragrance Free Shampoo & Wash (£7.99, 235ml), Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash (£7.99, 235ml) and Baby Bee Bubble Bath (£9.99, 350ml) are non-irritating, natural formulas that are gentle enough for everyday use.



For soft, smooth skin after bath-time Baby Bee has a trio of lotions to suit your little one. With buttermilk, shea butter & sunflower seed oil the Baby Bee Original Lotion (£9.99, 170g) provides up to 24hrs of moisturisation. Baby Bee Fragrance Free Lotion (£9.99, 170gl) is perfect for gently moisturising even the most delicate skin whilst the Baby Bee Calming Lotion (£9.99, 170g) blended with lavender & vanilla soothes and relaxes helping to aid a perfect nights sleep.  Quality bonding is important, so why not try something simple like massaging your baby with Baby Bee Nourishing Baby Oil (£9.99, 118ml) to not only help nourish baby’s skin with a combination of vitamin-rich oils, but massaging can also create a relaxing sensation to help calm a restless baby. 



A comfortable baby is a happy baby, and Baby Bee Diaper Ointment (£5.99, 55g) helps to nourish skin, sealing moisture in and wetness out. Made with 100% natural ingredients, it is packed full of nourishing Vitamins, Zinc Oxide and Beeswax, to protect delicate skin. Adding a sprinkle of Baby Bee Dusting Powder (£6.99, 127.6g) made with slippery elm bark, cornstarch and kaolin helps keep your baby dry, happy and smelling fresh. 



Good things come in small packages, and the Baby Bee Getting Started Kit (£12.99) is the perfect example. The perfect present choice, this kit is full of products to naturally nurture your baby from top to bottom and contains all your baby skin care essentials. The kit includes the key products from the collection, including the Baby Bee Original Lotion (25g), Shampoo & Body Wash (50ml), Nourishing Baby Oil (30ml), Buttermilk Soap (20g) and Nappy Ointment (20g).



And to ensure Mum’s don’t feel left out, try the Mama Bee range featuring Mama Bee Belly Butter (£13.99, 185g). Made with skin-loving natural ingredients such a Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter, this is the perfect product to help keep expanding skin smooth. For when you’re legs and feet need a treat, Mama Bee Leg & Foot Cream (£12.99, 85g) is formulated with peppermint oil and rosemary extract to help relax tired muscles and moisturise your skin. Or, if a therapeutic bath or massage is just what you need, the Mama Bee Body Oil with Vitamin E (£10.99, 115ml) is ideal to keep your body hydrated.
