    Default Burt's Bees documentary about Burt Shavitz

    I guess there is a new documentary coming out about this guy. In the video, he seems quite intelligent and personable; someone I would like to get to know more about. I guess he's famous for a lip balm, although I've never seen it. Maybe it has come out only in the past 2 years, but it sounds like it is older than that.

    Yeah Burt's Bees became famous for a hand cream made I guess from beeswax that was used to soothe the dry cracked skin of some workers that got very dry cracked skin. I think. It's been around for a long time. Since then it's become a big company and the brand has been diluted a bit making everything from lip balm to aftershave.
