I was on their website, and not only do they have awesome all-natural products, they have a great history. It says that back in 1984, Maine artist Roxanne Quimby was on the side of the road trying to hitch a ride home. A man named Burt Shavitz, who was known for his roadside honey stand, pulled over and before long they became friends. Soon enough, Roxanne was making candles with unused wax from Burt’s beehives.
In 1989, a boutique in New York City fell in love with the artistry of Burt’s Bees candles, and the small business shipped them by the hundreds. In 1991, Burt’s Bees created a beeswax lip balm, which became a best seller and still is today! Burt’s Bees went global in 1999, and in 2003 they created Lip Shimmers, which is my favorite product! I always have a Lip Shimmer with my in my back pocket. It acts as a lip balm while giving lips vibrant color.
In 2007, Burt’s Bees finalized their Greater Good Philosophy. A big thing in the company is practicing what they preach, and they do! They believe it is very important to make products with the best ingredients while helping the environment at the same time. I like what Burt’s Bees stands for and I am happy to support them!
