I like the history of the Burt’s Bees products. In 1984, Rozanne Quimby of Maine saw amateur beekeeper Burt Shavitz at the side of the road, selling his honey. In just a few months, Roxanne had drafted a business plan and started working on products with Burt. How cool is that? I don’t think I’ve tried any of their products yet, but I’m going to look into it. The article that I was reading says that on average, 99% of the ingredients in their products are natural. And I guess they are trying to get a more standardized agreement on what in the beauty products world can be called, nature. That, I think is a fine idea. I didn’t realize that the word natural really doesn’t have that many restrictions on it as to what could be called natural. I think that is in the food world too, but I’m not sure of that. So anyway, buy some Burt’s Bees products today! Incidentally, Burt’s Bees products got on A- on Ellis Jones’ Better World Shopping Guide scale.
