Burt's Bees Skincare products all come, as the name might suggest, from beekeeper Burt
and Roxanne Quimby an aspiring beekeeper and journalist who sold honey at markets. Together they started to develop beautiful candles made from excess beeswax, this slowly turned into beauty products; namely lip balm to extend the business. And before you could say 'buzzzzz' distribution spread from New York to Canada, Asia, the UK and into Europe. The rest, as they say, is history and Burt's Bees now has over 150 products within their range, from face care to make-up products all made from natural ingredients with no unnecessary chemicals.
Burt's Bees Body & Bath products leave your skin feeling nourished, soft and smooth.
thanks to the hydrating natural ingredients blended together. Whether you need to relax and soothe or revitalise and refresh there is a product here for you. We love the Burt's Bees Therapeutic Bath Crystals that just seem to revitalise the body and mind whilst you soak in a warm tub, or if showering is more your bag then try a little Sugar Scrub for zingy skin!
About the brand
The partnership of Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz began in 1984. Roxanne and artists and Burt a beekeeper were the perfect partners, starting with the unused wax from Burt’s beehive, Roxanne started to make candles. After selling their candles at a craft fair they soon moved on to a larger market shipping to NYC.
Burt’s Bees lip balm was created in 1991 and became their bestseller.
In 1998 the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream was brought out and started the expansion into personal care products.
After going global in 1999, Burt’s Bees came out with a larger range of lip products in 2003, with lip shimmer and colour whilst containing the same nourishing lip care that the lip balm contains. Since then Burt’s Bees has continued to grow as a company and has released a number of successful products. Burt’s Bees now caters for a variety of different beauty needs – skincare, body care, lip care and hair care, there are even products to aid women through pregnancy!
