Julianne Moore Talks About Partnership with Burt’s Bees

wenn1900085.jpg 

Julianne Moore recently opened up to Ben Lyons with E! about what drove her to natural skincare products and partnering with Burt’s Bees, working on the feature film “Blindness” and her new children’s book.

When asked about the confusion that can arise when shopping for natural skincare products, Moore talks about how Burt’s Bees and the Natural Products Association worked together to develop “The Natural Seal:” “Burt’s Bees has worked with this group — it certifies that products are 95% natural, and they won’t cause any harm to your person. I think because the kind of toxins that we have to live with on a day to day basis, there’s no reason you need to get them in lotion.”

Moore’s children drove her to become passionate about natural products: “I have kids who have eczema for example, so I can’t put anything on them or they’ll have a reaction to it.”

When Lyons asks what it was like to work with director Fernando Meirelles on the feature film “Blindness,” Moore says: I always say that great directors have a lot, they always have a very distinct vision. So that’s what he did. He was very, very sure about what he wanted.“

In addition to acting and spreading the word about Burt’s Bees, Moore is also a children’s book author: “Yes, I have another book coming out next spring, it’s called “Freckleface and the Dodgeball Bully.” It’s about her going to school and dealing with somebody who is a bully.”

JULIANNE MOORE CASTS HER VOTE FOR NATURAL

WHO: Julianne Moore and Burt’s Bees

WHAT: Given the choice between natural and synthetic, what’s your vote? Burt’s Bees thinks the choice should be clear in personal care. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it looks, many personal care products on the market positioning products as ‘natural’ may contain potentially harmful ingredients. That’s why Burt’s Bees and Julianne Moore are giving consumers the opportunity to cast their votes for truly natural personal care at Burt’s Bees’ Election Day in New York City.

Like many consumers, Burt’s Bees has always believed that natural ingredients are safer and more beneficial. The trouble is, it can take a lot of reading between the lines of labels to figure out what’s natural vs. synthetic. To help consumers find what they’re really looking for in a natural product, Burt’s Bees has worked closely with the Natural Products Association and other like minded brands to develop a Natural Seal—a symbol that lets consumers know when products contain at least 95% natural ingredients. On Burt’s Bees’ Voting Day, a vote for natural is also a vote for the Natural Seal, helping make natural a clear choice after all.

To ensure that the best candidate comes out on top, “green” actress Julianne Moore will be on hand to cast the first vote for natural at the Burt’s Bees Voting Booth at Merchants’ Gate at Columbus Circle in NYC. Other NYC voters can learn more about ‘natural’, cast their vote and receive samples of Burt’s Bees products.

Most importantly, consumers across the America are invited to join Julianne and this movement, casting their votes for the natural at www.votefornatural.com, where they can also learn more about the movement as well as win prizes, including a limited-edition C&C California for Burt’s Bees T-Shirt. Each vote represents a conscious choice to use natural products over the potentially harmful synthetic alternatives as well as support for the new Natural Seal. A ‘vote’ for Natural lets the competition know that the public wants transparency in natural personal care.

With the hot summer weather in Oregon I’ve been wearing flip flops non stop and as a result my feet were getting really dry and yucky. When I was cleaning my room this weekend I found a brand new tube of Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme in the back of my dresser. I was so happy it’s like finding money in a coat or pair of pants you haven’t worn in a while.

Back to my feet ugh! So the last two nights before bed I have slathered my feet with Coconut Foot Creme and put sucks on. I can’t believe the difference in just two nights my feet feel so soft and smooth and the rough sand paper feeling has disappeared. They also look better, the skin looks much healthier and hydrated. Great product at a great price!

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme
Go nuts for incredibly soft feet.

How it Works
This pampering natural foot cream combines coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin to revive and rejuvenate even the driest, most neglected feet. There’s also a hint of natural rosemary and peppermint oils to refresh tired feet.
How to Use It

Apply liberally and allow the cream to fully absorb. For a luxurious way to treat your feet, soak feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes and rub gently with a pumice stone. Massage Coconut Foot Creme into feet, paying close attention to heels and calloused skin. Then cover your feet with cotton socks overnight to soothe and seal in moisture.
Featured Ingredient

Coconut Oil — The flesh of the coconut is rich in emollient fat and, when pressed, yields a white, sweetly-scented, super-moisturizing oil, which is a solid at room temperature but easily melts on the skin.

Ginger Root

Ginger Root: Cultivated by Asian cultures for nearly 5000 years, this warm and spicy aromatic derived from the rhizome of the ginger plant has traditionally been used to stimulate digestion, increase circulation and relieve muscle and joint pain. It is also useful as an antiseptic and to treat colds and prevent motion sickness and jet lag. Applied topically, it acts as a rubefacient, reddening the skin by stimulating blood flow to accelerate healing and relieve muscle soreness, while its relaxant properties can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
