Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin regimen gets JDD support

Burt’s Bees’ nature-based Sensitive Skin regimen got some support from the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, or JDD.

The JDD recently published clinical data that supported the efficacy of the beauty brand’s sensitive skin regimen at helping maintain healthy skin barrier function.

The company’s nature-based regimen consists of the Sensitive Facial Cleanser, Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream and Sensitive Night Cream. Each resulted in being well-tolerated and a leading dermatologist-recommended regimen.

“The data suggest that nature-based products can be effective for patients who seek alternatives to conventional, synthetic skin care products,” Zoe Draelos of Dermatology Consulting Services in High Point, N.C., the study’s principal investigator, said. “Patients with sensitive skin saw a clinical improvement in overall skin appearance, specifically in visual and tactile smoothness, clarity, and radiance.”

To obtain these results, a four-week, double-blind and randomized study was conducted in 120 women with sensitive skin who suffer from clinically diagnosed rosacea, atopic dermatitis/eczema or cosmetic intolerance. The end results demonstrated that Burt Bees’ Sensitive Skin Care line improved physician-rated skin appearance by 34%, in smoothness, clarity and radiance.

“These data support the efficacy of nature-based formulations on sensitive skin, as well as the benefit of homeostasis of the epidermal barrier for overall skin health, including maintaining appropriate levels of hydration and allowing skin to breathe,” Hemali Gunt, head of clinical and scientific affairs, at Burt’s Bees said. “This publication affirms the benefit of natural products for sensitive skin, and offers an effective option as more people seek natural alternatives to conventional formulas.”

The complete study can be found on the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology’s August 2018 issue.
