The supplements business makes brands of vitamins including RenewLife and Rainbow Light. Clorox’s Burt’s Bees division already employs 500 at its Durham headquarters and a manufacturing plant in Morrisville.

The state has approved a Job Development Investment Grant for the company that will allow it to be reimbursed by up to nearly $2.2 million over 12 years. The state estimates that the new project will grow the state’s economy by many times that over the 12-year course of the grant.
