Burt's Bees, a pioneer in natural skin care, today announced research supporting the role of efficacy-first natural regimens to defend, restore and improve skin health.
The studies will be presented at the second annual Integrative Dermatology Symposium (IDS) in San Diego, California, October 3-5, 2019.
These latest research findings from Burt's Bees highlight:
- Anti-aging properties of bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol and the active ingredient in the brand's new Renewal anti-aging line
Important role nature-based skincare products play in protecting skin and decreasing sensitivity, reinforcing nature's innate ability to protect against skin-damaging elements in the environment
First-of-its-kind in vivo study examining lip barrier function and clinical data highlighting benefits of a new nature-based lip treatment, underscoring the brand's heritage in lip care
At Burt's Bees, we are committed to harnessing the proven power of nature-based ingredients. Notably, research announced today provides valuable insight into the effectiveness of natural retinol alternative, bakuchiol, which has been shown to be comparable to retinol in its ability to improve signs of photo-aging.
The powerful anti-aging properties of this ingredient provide patients with a natural option to nurture strong and healthy-looking skin - without the frequent irritation that some patients experience with retinol products."
