Burt’s Bees began with the humble honey bee over 25 years ago. Beekeeper, Burt Shavitz met artist, Roxanne Quimby when she was hitchhiking in Maine, USA. Roxanne became intrigued by his story of honey bees and together they created a booming candle business that over time became a leading natural skincare brand around the world. Pioneering a new approach to beauty, Burt & Roxanne started making beauty products from natural ingredients that harnessed the outstanding power of bees.
From the first beeswax lip balm to the award-winning skin care made with Royal Jelly, the exclusive diet of the Queen Bee, Burt’s Bees now provides a complete range of face and body care products. They are all made from natural ingredients that not only give you highly effective results, but are also kind to your skin and the environment. Being good to you and the planet is what Burt’s Bees is all about.
