The fact that they don’t have secret ingredients.
At Burt’s Bees, the word ‘natural’ is not thrown around lightly. Burt’s Bees believes you’re most beautiful when what you put on your body comes from nature. From Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm and Burt’s Bees Lipstick to Burt’s Bees Hand Cream and Burt’s Bees Eye Cream, all Burt’s Bees products are around 99% natural, with over half of the products being 100% natural.
From the top of your head to the tip of your toes, there’s a Burt’s Bees product to leave your skin feeling as balanced, soft and nourished as nature intended. They even have a dedicated ‘Mama Bee’ range that looks after mothers and their babies – including the soothing Burt’s Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter and gentle Burt’s Bees Baby Shampoo.
And to top it off, Burt’s Bees products are never tested on animals.
About 30 years ago a beekeeper met an artist and the rest is history…
Burt the Beekeeper was happy enough selling his home-grown honey from the back of his truck, but fate seemed to have other plans for this bearded business man. Burt met Roxanne Quimby and they hit it off immediately, and it wasn’t long before Roxanne was using unused wax from Burt’s beehives to make candles.
From honey and candles, quickly came a whole range of natural skincare and beauty products, enriched with the natural goodness of Burt’s Bees. Burt makes his products using beeswax – the substance that makes the structure of bee hives, royal jelly – the food of queen bees and her offspring, and a whole host of other natural goodies.
