Burt’s Bees, recognized as a leader in natural health and beauty care, is proud to announce that its Baby Bee® and Mama Bee® collections have met the rigorous quality standards of Healthy Child Healthy World, a national non-profit organization dedicated to informing and inspiring consumers nationwide to take action and create cleaner, greener, safer environments where children and families can flourish.
With a growing body of evidence linking everyday environmental contaminants to asthma, learning disabilities, obesity, cancer and more, Healthy Child Healthy World helps translate the science so parents and caregivers have the tools they need to create healthier environments for children. Together with Healthy Child Healthy World, Burt’s Bees will work to further the organization’s mission of empowering consumers to make smarter, safer lifestyle choices for their children.
Burt’s Bees believes in giving children a healthy, natural start in the world by using nature’s most powerful yet gentle ingredients to care for babies’ delicate skin and adhering to the highest standards of health and safety, ensuring that they are as safe and effective as they are natural. The entire collection is also priced affordably ($4.99-$9.99 MSRP), so all mothers can make the natural choice for their little ones.
Burt’s Bees is proud to announce that the entire Baby Bee® line of products now contains 100% natural fragrances and is pediatrician and dermatologist-tested. Baby Bee® and Mama Bee® products are also made without petrochemicals, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, nano-particles, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, or ethoxylated ingredients that could potentially release harmful 1,4-dioxane.
“Burt’s Bees co-founder, Roxanne Quimby, was a mother of young children when she and Burt started the company. Their high quality standards were applied to the Baby Bee® products—some of the earliest Burt’s Bees products developed—which have been beloved by mothers since the early 1980s,” says Celeste Lutrario, VP of Research & Development at Burt’s Bees.
By meeting the stringent standards of Healthy Child Healthy World, Burt’s Bees® Baby Bee® and Mama Bee® products have joined the organization’s “Shop Healthy” program (www.healthychild.org/live-healthy/shop-healthy/).
“Burt’s Bees has worked hard to listen to the concerns of Healthy Child Healthy World and moms nationwide to develop a vast collection of products that practice a ‘better safe than sorry’ approach,” says Healthy Child Healthy World CEO Gigi Lee Chang. “We are so proud to work with Burt’s Bees, an innovator and leader in natural baby care products, to offer families quality skincare products that are easily accessible, affordable, and most of all, safer for children’s health.”
Together, Healthy Child Healthy World and Burt’s Bees will help educate and motivate parents to protect their children by adopting healthier lifestyle habits and choosing products that meet their quality standards, like those from Burt’s Bees Baby Bee® and Mama Bee® collections.
