Burt's Bees Presents Research on the Proven Power of Naturals at the 2019 World Congress of Dermatology

New clinical research demonstrates compelling efficacy in use of nature-based ingredients and formulations to defend, restore and improve skin health

DURHAM, N.C., June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Burt's Bees, a leading provider of personal care products committed to natural skin care solutions, today announced research supporting new findings related to the skin's composition and the role of nature-based regimens to protect the skin against common environmental stressors. The studies will be presented at the 24th World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) Meeting in Milan, Italy, June 10-15, 2019.

These latest research findings from Burt's Bees highlight:

  • The protective abilities of botanical antioxidants in photo-aging and UV protection
  • The important role that nature-based skin care products may play in improving barrier and decreasing skin sensitivity in highly polluted environments
  • Evidence pre/probiotics may dually modulate sebum and the skin microbiome
  • First-of-its-kind in vivo study examining lip barrier composition

"This promising research helps us better understand how to positively impact and modulate skin health through nature-based ingredients. These ingredient-based studies will help drive understanding of the effects of nature-based ingredients and products on skin health and environmental aggressors such as the sun and pollutants," said Raja K. Sivamani, MD MS AP, Department of Dermatology at the University of California, Davis Medical Center and study investigator.
