Burt’s Bees

 –  If hitchhiking hadn’t existed in 1984, Burt’s Bees wouldn’t exist today. The company got its unconventional start when Roxanne Quimby, an artist from Maine, was thumbing a ride and Burt Shavitz, a local bee-keeper, picked her up. The two hit it off instantly and soon began making candles from Burt’s beeswax. They were so successful at selling candles that they stared making other things from the beeswax, including personal care products.

From the beginning, Burt’s Bees was different. It was a company made possible by nature, and it has continued to use nature as its inspiration in creating everything from shampoo, to lotion, to toothpaste. Its philosophy is two-fold: what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body, and the products you use on your body should be made from the best nature has to offer. To this day, Burt’s Bees strives to base its products on ingredients that are simple, natural, and responsible. This means instead of seeing complicated chemical names on Burt’s Bees labels, you’ll see easily recognizable ingredients such as willow bark, aloe, and sage.

To know how natural a Burt’s Bees product is, you don’t need to look further than the product packaging. That’s because Burt’s Bees includes a natural meter on each product. Over half of its products are 100% natural. On average, Burt’s Bees products are 99% natural. Although the company strives to make all of its products 100% natural, there are some preservatives and fragrances that are used when no natural alternative exists. In the future, the company hopes to eliminate synthetic ingredients completely.

The company’s dedication to nature goes beyond its actual products and extends to how the company conducts business. It has a zero waste policy at its headquarters. Employees regularly compost and recycle. Any waste that can’t be composted or recycled is turned into biomass-based fuel or electricity. Burt’s Bees is also sustainable when it comes to water. In fact, it installed a reverse osmosis system at its manufacturing plant to reuse tens of thousands of gallons of water each year. If you’re curious about all of the other things Burt’s Bees does to protect the Earth, look online for a copy of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

Because Burt’s Bees makes its products safe for you and for the environment, you can feel good when you put it on your skin. There are a lot of products to choose from. Burt’s Bees offers everything from a line of men’s skin care products, to products gentle enough for baby. Burt’s Bees knows that simplicity and gentleness don’t have to equal antiquity, so the company also offers advanced treatments for aging and acne, as well as lip glosses and shines that will impress even the savviest of makeup enthusiasts.

So explore, look around, and see for yourself the vast array of products that Burt’s Bees has to offer. Your face, elbows, knees, and teeth will thank you later.
