“We are thrilled to be partnering with an iconic brand like Burt's Bees”, Melanie Love, vice president of brand marketing said. “For years, the brand has been known for its innovations in the natural personal care space and has become a household name. The collaboration marries tech and lip care in a way that has created a new category of product for fans of both brands.”

The Burt’s Bees Original Beeswax Lip Balm looks to soften and nourish lips naturally, contains a hint of peppermint oil and is made from responsibly sourced beeswax. It also is infused with vitamin E, and formulated without the use of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS, the company said.

Available in five patterns, the PopGrip Lips x Burt’s Bees will contain two pans of lip balm, and retail for $19.99 at Target stores throughout the nation and at and
