This deliciously exotic fruit can add loads of flavor, variety and healthy nutrients to your diet, and a single whiff can put a smile on your face as you daydream about your next tropical vacation. As one of the chief ingredients for many Burt’s Bees products, Coconut (Cocos nucifera) can make your skin, hair and lips happy, too!

Coconut is one of nature’s most versatile gifts: rich in antioxidants and essential vitamins. Whether you’re interested in the fruit’s water, milk, meat, shell or oil, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the natural goodness of Coconut!

When cold pressed from the fruit of the trees, Coconut oil is light, nongreasy and exceptionally emollient.

We use Coconut oil in many of our lip balms, lotions and face care products.
