Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin regimen gets JDD support
Burt’s Bees’ nature-based Sensitive Skin regimen got some support from the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, or JDD.
The JDD recently published clinical data that supported the efficacy of the beauty brand’s sensitive skin regimen at helping maintain healthy skin barrier function.
The company’s nature-based regimen consists of the Sensitive Facial Cleanser, Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream and Sensitive Night Cream. Each resulted in being well-tolerated and a leading dermatologist-recommended regimen.
“The data suggest that nature-based products can be effective for patients who seek alternatives to conventional, synthetic skin care products,” Zoe Draelos of Dermatology Consulting Services in High Point, N.C., the study’s principal investigator, said. “Patients with sensitive skin saw a clinical improvement in overall skin appearance, specifically in visual and tactile smoothness, clarity, and radiance.”
To obtain these results, a four-week, double-blind and randomized study was conducted in 120 women with sensitive skin who suffer from clinically diagnosed rosacea, atopic dermatitis/eczema or cosmetic intolerance. The end results demonstrated that Burt Bees’ Sensitive Skin Care line improved physician-rated skin appearance by 34%, in smoothness, clarity and radiance.
“These data support the efficacy of nature-based formulations on sensitive skin, as well as the benefit of homeostasis of the epidermal barrier for overall skin health, including maintaining appropriate levels of hydration and allowing skin to breathe,” Hemali Gunt, head of clinical and scientific affairs, at Burt’s Bees said. “This publication affirms the benefit of natural products for sensitive skin, and offers an effective option as more people seek natural alternatives to conventional formulas.”
The complete study can be found on the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology’s August 2018 issue.

Amino Mason brings amino acids to beauty routines
Japanese beauty company Amino Mason wants to change consumers beauty routines.
The Boca Raton, Fla.-based company, which is part of the Cosmeist portfolio, unveiled its line of products, which features amino acid-enriched hair tools for men and women. Using botanical ingredients in its two new collections — moist and smooth — the brand is looking to help consumers find relief for various hair types.
The moist collection consists of a whip cream shampoo, milk cream treatment, butter milk mask pack, hair oil and night cream. The smooth line contains a whip cream shampoo, fruits cream treatment, oil cream mask pack and amino acid hair water.
“The Moist line is intended for people with very dry and damaged hair, and the Smooth line for those who are not experiencing such dryness,” Sariel Osada, director at Cosmeist, said. “In addition, if you have thick hair, I suggest going with the Moist line due to its thicker, heavier ingredients as it uses more oil content as opposed to the Smooth line which uses fruit extracts. Thin hair can go with either, but they would generally want to go with the Smooth line.”
Featured super amino acid complexes serve a base of ingredients from where each product is created, and travel into the cuticle’s third layer to re4plenish tresses, the company said.
“Our patented proprietary ingredient, ‘Amino Keratin’ is made of 16 amino acids and keratin protein that replenish hair with essential amino acids to repair and strengthen hair,” Osada said. “The Platinum helps to seal the hydration and amino acids in the hair shaft so you can rest assure in going under the sun, pool, beach and enjoying summer activities without worrying about your hair being damaged.”
