HAZELNUT OIL - From the hazelnut. This oil is slightly astringent and toning. Good for all skin types.

HERBS - Derived from plants, herbs are vegetable matter used in the form of the leaves, flowers or roots. Their use throughout history is well-documented as both effective and safe in the treatment of the ails of human and animal-kind. Just 150 years ago, and for civilizations before that, herbs were used for the same purposes as we use our chemical medications today. Burt's Bees continues the tradition of reverence for the gifts of Mother Nature by relying on herbs and plant-derived ingredients instead of the petroleum based, chemically formulated products available in the mass markets of our society.

HONEY - Sweet, fragrant, syrupy substance produced by bees. Honey soothes and adds softness to the skin, an excellent natural moisturizer.

HORSETAIL LEAVES - From the nonflowering horsetail plant. Rich in silica and other minerals. Rehydrating and soothing properties, as well as toning and astringent qualities. Important to tired and neglected skin types.

HUMECTANT - A skin conditioning ingredient in creams and lotions whose function is to prevent water loss and drying of the skin. Humectants are hygroscopic, that is they attract and hold moisture.

HYBRID SUNFLOWER OIL - Sunflowers were cultivated by the American Indians over 3,000 years ago. The pressed oil contains Vitamin E and other substances that are beneficial to the skin.

HYDRATING - The ability to restore or maintain the normal fluid proportion in the skin or body. Hydrating agents are used in cosmetics to keep the skin natural, moist, firm and young-looking.

HYPERICUM PERFORATUM - St. John's Wort. Has a wide range of medicinal uses; it is an antibacterial used to heal deep cuts and wounds, soothes and eases the pain of burns by lowering skin temperature, and is a diurectic, helping to eliminate waste materials from the body.

INFUSION - A mixture of herbs in liquid that is soaked or steeped for a period of time and then used internally or externally as a cosmetic or medicine. An infusion is made chiefly from the softer parts (the flower or leaves). Burt's Bees massage oils are an infusion made by steeping herbs in botanical oils over low heat for several weeks until the goodness of the herbs is released into the oil. The spent herbs are then filtered out and discarded; the remaining infusion contains the healing benefits of the herbs.

IRON OXIDE - A natural mineral pigment.

JASMINE OIL - Jasmium Officinate. Used in skin and hair care products, it helps to soothe and moisturize. Jasmine is believed to be soothing, anti-depressant, antiseptic, emotionally balancing and an aphrodisiac. Has a rich, calming, sensual floral fragrance.

JEWEL WEED - The juice of the plant has been used for centuries to relieve the irritation and itch of poison ivy, oak or sumac.

JOJOBA OIL - A natural extracted liquid wax from the jojoba plant. This natural oil is excellent for the skin and hair. It is superior to other skin and hair oils. This mild oil is a natural moisturizer that absorbs quickly into the skin.

JUNIPER BERRY OIL - Thin, clear liquid derived from the berries of the juniper bush. Antiseptic, detoxifying, toning and astringent. Chosen for oily or sluggish skin and is a good cleansing agent. Draws out fluids and is useful in cellulite formulations. Slightly reminiscent of pine needles.
