Remembering a natural pioneer and true original.

The namesake of Burt's Bees was many things to many people. Burt Shavitz is remembered as a wild-bearded and free-spirited Maine man, a beekeeper, a wisecracker, a lover of golden retrievers, a reverent observer of nature, and the face that still smiles back from the lid of every Burt's Bees hand salve.

Known as an uncompromising individual, Burt was shaped by the moment and his curiosities rather than his ambitions or other people's plans. Burt Shavitz never set out to change the world, but his profound appreciation of nature and the values encouraged by his namesake brand helped nurture the remarkable growth of natural products and sustainable business practices.
