Burts Bees has worked for 25 years worldwide to educate consumers about the issues around claims made about ‘natural’ products.

Burt’s Bees Australia General Manager Emma Atkinson is keen to see more people talking about ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ personal care products. Recent interest in accurate labelling on the part of the ACCC, and the growing body of research about the potential harmful effects of ingredients such as phthalates, parabens and triclosan mean consumers are more aware than ever before.

“It’s about honesty about what we use and clarity about what we mean,” Ms Atkinson said.

A Winter Tan With the Help of a Tanning Lotion

Winter is here down under. For those wanting stronger rays for a sun kissed complexion, they’ll either need to take a mid year holiday to the north, or head to a tanning booth and expose yourself to radical skin damage (which we don’t recommend as it hugely increases the risk of skin cancer).

The other more economical option is a tanning lotion.

Tanning lotions have come along way since the grotty orange carrot look. Technology has progressed greatly during the past 20 years in the cosmetics tanning industry and you can now find natural products available that can help nourish your skin while giving it that extra boosts of pigment.

Subtle bronzed skin is a hit no matter what the season is. You can now obtain that gorgeous golden glow in the winter by using safe affordable methods and by following these easy sunless tanning tricks.
