Editors Notes

Burt’s Bees began in Maine in 1984 when Burt Shavitz and Roxanne Quimby teamed up to make beeswax candles using the wax from Burt’s bee hives. The pair sold the candles at local craft fairs and the business quickly expanded, with production moving from a one-room old schoolhouse to a bowling alley which could house their growing company.

During this time, Roxanne found a 19th Century book of home-made personal care recipes and by 1991 Burt’s Bees had added natural soaps, perfumes and lip balms to their range.

Now based in Durham, North Carolina, and with more products added to their range, over half of their products are 100% natural, made from a blend of potent herbs, flowers, beeswax and minerals. Burt’s Bees’ aim is to create products that are good for both the environment and the consumer, maximising wellbeing and adhering to the ethos of reduce, reuse and recycle.

Burt’s Bees’ products and ingredients are not tested on animals and their range is formulated without parabens, sulphates, phthalates and petrochemicals.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good product I bought it for my daughter-in-law who uses it all the time and says it is excellent for keeping hands moist especially after gardening. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes your hands feel pampered This is definitely a salve rather than a cream, with a very waxy texture. Although expensive, you need only rub in a little at a time; it really feels as if it's helping to combat the effects of the cold weather on my hands. 16 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheaper than some I'm trying a range of creams/lotions for my very dry and scaly hands. This is very similar to Kiehl's hand salve and I find them both a little greasy. They both soften and smooth the skin and smell similarly medicinal, this is the eucalytptus, I think. They are both very expensive and other products of a similar feel are just as effective but cheaper. 13 April 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chapped hands! I bought this for my boyfriend who has very chapped hands in the winter and he thinks its great, the only downside is I'm not too keen on the smell but he likes it! 16 January 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not my favourtie Delivery from JL prompt as always, personally I dont particularly like this hand salve. Maybe its becuase I am more used to using cream but it doesnt seem to do a good job of keeping my hands protected or soft. I use of a night as it is very greasy otherwise. 16 January 2012
