As I've said before, Winter can be brutal on your skin. The wee bit of humidity in the air evaporates when we blast our heat, and we're left with itchy, dry skin. The dry manufactured heat also does a number on sensitive lips. You need a soothing lip balm like this one from Burt's Bees. Made with all natural ingredients including beeswax, rosemary extract, and peppermint oil, this balm soaks into your skin providing cooling relief immediately. It also contains comfrey root extract, which helps heal dry or cracked lips.
I fell in love with this lip balm many years ago when Burt's was a small company, and you could only find their products at health food stores. In case you hadn't heard though, Clorox bought Burt's Bees. Want to hear more about it? Then read more
Burt's Bees sold for almost $1 million, and some environmentalists are appalled and worried that this big company won't maintain Burt's Bees environmental practices. Others are hoping that by purchasing this all natural company, Clorox will become greener. They've already been reshaping their practices, and have recently introduced a line of all natural household cleaning products called Green Works, that are labeled 99% natural. I think it's great that so many big companies are making choices to positively affect our world. I'm definitely a little wary about this, but hopefully Clorox will continue on its path to greendom. Even though Clorox now owns Burt's Bees, I'm optimistic that it will continue to make all natural products.
