Nature-based Regimen Outperforms Synthetic in Skin Health Comparison

Article

The results of the randomized double-blind study, published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, included 120 women with sensitive skin who suffer from clinically diagnosed rosacea, atopic dermatitis/eczema, or cosmetic intolerance

A nature-based regimen using "natural oils, glycerin, and botanical anti-inflammatories" delivers improved skin health compared to a leading dermatologist-recommended synthetic regimen, according to results of a recently published study.

The results of the randomized double-blind study, published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, included 120 women with sensitive skin who suffer from clinically diagnosed rosacea, atopic dermatitis/eczema, or cosmetic intolerance. Sixty of the women used Burt’s Bees’ nature-based regimen, consisting of Sensitive Facial Cleanser, Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream and Sensitive Night Cream for 4-weeks. This regimen was compared with a "synthetic dermatologist-recommended regimen of cetyl alcohol, sodium lauryl sulphate-containing cleanser and glycerin, polyisobutene-containing lotion (CR)."

Results demonstrated that Burt’s Bees clinically and statistically improved physician-rated overall skin appearance by 34% with similar improvements in visual and tactile smoothness, clarity and radiance. In contrast, the maximum improvement in women using the synthetic regimen was 4% (P<.001).

Burt's Bees published the results in the journal.
