Burt's Bees: Beekeeper meets artist - how it all began ... The meeting took place about 30 years ago in the US state of Maine. The beekeeper Burt Shavitz sold his honey from the back of his bright yellow pickup truck and was content with this life. But fate had other plans for this bearded man. He met Roxanne Quimby. Burt and Roxanne hit it off right away and it wasn't long before she made candles from leftover wax from Burt's beehives.
The first skin care product from Burt's Bees was the legendary lip balm. Roxanne tweaked a simple lip balm recipe she found in an old farmers journal from the 19th century. From now on, Burt's Bees is a simple principle treu stayed: nature has the best answers. “Natural” also means natural at Burt's Bees. Burt's Bees products are on average 99% natural and over half of the products are 100% natural. Burt's Bees believes that your beauty is best shown when what you put on your body comes from nature. After all, we take everything on our body into our body.
Burt's Bees formulas contain all the nutrients your skin needs, and none of the useless chemicals that she doesn't need. The Burt's Bees brand has established itself over the years as one of the leading brands in natural body care. We are very proud of this.
