OUR STORY BEGINS IN BRIGHTON, ENGLAND, IN 1976.
Our founder, Ms. Anita Roddick, began mixing different ingredients, by inspiring with a new, revolutionary idea - that business can be profitable and at the same time - socially responsible. Following her vision for 40 years, we create new rules, we stay true to our values and change the world. We currently have over 3,000 stores in 66 countries, employing over 22,000 people. Together we provide a unique range of high quality cosmetic products created with care for people, animals and the environment.
We dare to be different and defend what we believe in. We are looking for the best natural ingredients from all over the world and we create real cosmetic products with the brand The Body Shop.
Our products are 100% vegetarian and we strongly oppose the testing of cosmetics on animals. "
For us, this means working fairly with raw material producers and suppliers, and helping communities grow through our Community Trade program.
"Today, our devotion is stronger than ever. As part of the Enrich Not Exploit ™ commitment, we have turned our mission into caring for people and the planet, in parallel with the development of our business.
The change is in our hands - together we can achieve it.
