Burt Shavitz worked as a photojournalist when he left New York in search of nature and life as a bee-keeper in the early 80's. Burt settled down in a log cabin in Maine, with no running water or electricity and lived off what he produced on the farm. One day he met Roxanne Quimby, and that was the beginning of a strong friendship and an exciting collaboration. Roxanne discovered the potential of Burt's leftover beeswax and started making candles to sell at markets around the country. In 1991 they produced their first beauty products. Today, Burt's Bees is the best selling natural beauty and personal care brand in North America. Shop your Burt's Bees products at nelly.com.
