Cult skincare brand Burt’s Bees has announced its intention to release an anti-acne range. The range will consist as always, of all natural ingredients – ingredients which Burt’s Bees assures will be as good (if not better) at fighting acne as its chemical laden competitors. This is great news for all natural product enthusiasts (of which Ape to Gentleman are).

The main ingredient in the fight against acne will be Salicylic Acid, used in many acne treatments, however in Burt’s Bees formula, this will not be chemically derived but naturally, from the Willow Tree. Willow bark extract, in its natural form, is known to be rich in tannins and for fighting off pathogens, said Mike Indursky, Burt’s Bees Chief Operating Officer.

“It has been reported to have analgesic properties and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s incredibly powerful when you get it from its source.”

The line will contain a Purifying Gel Cleanser, Pore Refining Scrub, Daily Moisturising Lotion and a Targeted Spot Treatment. Available at nivenandjoshua.com this autumn.
