    Burt's ex-girlfriend was actually the mastermind of the company, and ended up with the lion's share. Burt would only grudgingly admit to using the company's products if pressed after the break-up. But he got a nice motorcycle....

    Their hand/foot creams are miracle workers! Plus, the almond milk one smells divine. RIP - been using Burt's Bees at least a decade.

    You wouldn't be disappointed. My hands get really dry and chapped in the extreme weather of summer and winter if I'm not careful, and this stuff heals everything up within a few days. Bit pricey, but one jar lasts quite a while.

    (I'm starting to sound like a sponsor. But it's really good!)

    Man, I thought this thread was about a Bee empire, where he was raising bee's to combat the "killer bee's" invading the US. This stuff wasn't around when my kid's were babies, sounds like some good stuff!
