Discover Burt's Bees...
The partnership of Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz began in 1984. Roxanne, an artist, and Burt, a beekeeper, made a great team and decided to start selling candles together. Roxanne made the candles with unused wax from Burt’s beehive, which were then sold at a craft fair. Later on, Roxanne and Burt were able to sell to a larger market and reach more people by shipping to NYC and expanding their product range.
In 1991, Burt’s Bees lip balm was created and became the brand’s bestseller. In 1998, the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream was brought out.
After going global in 1999, Burt’s Bees came out with a larger range of lip products in 2003, with lip shimmer and colour. Since then, Burt’s Bees have continued to grow as a company and have released a number of successful formulas. Burt’s Bees now cater for a variety of different beauty needs – skin care, body care, lip care and hair care - and there are even products to aid women through pregnancy.
At Burt's Bees, they don't waste time pretending to be something they're not. They'd rather put their energy into making the best natural personal care products out there, helping you maximise your well-being. Burt's Bees take great pride in the fact that over half of their 150+ products are 100% natural.
