Wiki


Burt's Bees is an American personal care products company that describes itself as an "Earth friendly, Natural Personal Care Company" making products for personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. As of 2007, they manufactured over 150 products for facial and body skin care, lip care, hair care, baby care, men's grooming, and outdoor remedies distributed in nearly 30,000 retail outlets including grocery stores and drug store chains across the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan from their headquarters in Durham, NC.

Burt's Bees manufactures their products with natural ingredients using minimal processing such as distillation/condensation, extraction/steamed distillation/pressure cooking and hydrolysis to maintain the purity of those ingredients. In addition, every product has a "natural bar" which gives a percentage of natural ingredients in that product, often with detailed ingredient descriptions.

Burt's Bees operates under a business model referred to as "The Greater Good," which outlines that all company practices must be socially responsible. To reflect this philosophy, Burt's Bees uses all natural ingredients, engages in environmentally friendly business practices, and extends its humanitarian efforts to the community at large.

Originating in Maine in the 1980s, the business began when co-founder Roxanne Quimby started making candles from Burt Shavitz's leftover beeswax.  Their attention to quality brought success and eventually led to the bottling and selling of honey, a practice that slowly diminished as the company evolved as a corporation. Eventually, other products using honey and beeswax, including edible spreads and furniture polish, were sold, before moving into the personal care line.

In late October 2007, the Clorox Company announced that they would purchase Burt's Bees

Burt's Bee Chapstick
At any given moment I have about 5 different lipsticks/ chapsticks/ balms on me but the one that works best out of all of them is Burt's Bee.      Why do I love this chapstick so much?  It's pretty wild because I actually hate bees.  Did you know that as a child I once jumped out of a moving vehicle because there was a bee in the car? Yeah, my parents were pissed.     Oh, right ... back to the point. I love this stuff because it keeps my lips …
