Burt Shavitz, a beekpeer, founded his brand in 1984. He initially created a range of nourishing lip and skin care products, which soon expanded into to foot care and beautifully gentle products for babies.
Burt was known as an interesting character, spending his life living as close to nature as possible, including many years without electricity or running water. He passed away in 2015 but will be remembered as the world's most famous, yet unassuming apiarist who rose to international success.
Burt's Bees put their energy into making the best natural personal care products available. Over half of their products are 100% natural, and they are still striving, through research, testing and reformulations, to make all of their products 100% natural. Burt's Bees label every product with a "natural bar" so you can clearly see the levels of natural ingredients in their products.
What's more, Burt's Bees strive to ensure that most of their packaging is made from recycled products, or has been developed with reuse and recyclability in mind. Not only that, but their packages are designed to hold just enough product to use before the expiry date, which means that you waste less of your own products too!
