The Body Shop started out in Brighton, U.K. as one woman’s dream to earn some money for herself and her children to survive on. When the company opened its first store in 1976, Dame Anita Roddick, a Human Rights Activist and the Founder of The Body Shop, sold only 25 natural products.
To date, The Body Shop is present in over 60 countries and has more than 300 products on their shelves. The company has always placed emphasis on their products containing all natural ingredients that were ethically sourced and cruelty-free.
The Body Shop aims to provide products that are not only all-natural and cruelty-free but also soothing to the face, body and soul of their customers. Each product line is tailored to specifically meet the needs of their customers.
Among their well-known and most-raved-about products would be The Body Shop Body Butter range. It provides the right amount of hydration to keep your skin moisturized for 24 hours without feeling too sticky. While The Body Shop does offer different scents in this range, that is not the only thing that differs in the Body Shop Body Butter range. Because each scent is made using all-natural ingredients, each Body Shop Body Butter has its own unique properties and textures to cater to each customer’s needs. With so many scents to choose from, it is no wonder that The Body Shop’s Body Butter range is so widely received around the globe. To complement the well-loved scents from a few of The Body Shop Body Butter range, the brand created other products (from shower gels and soaps to body mists and eau de toilettes of the same scent) to ensure that their customers are able to enjoy the lovely scents throughout the day.
Other than providing yummy goodies for your body’s needs, The Body Shop also has several skin care lines that is made to take care of specific skin problems that people may face. The most popular among them would be the Tea Tree skincare line. Used and loved by many, The Body Shop Skin Care line is great for people who suffer from blemishes, blackheads and oily skin. Use The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash to cleanse your face of any and all impurities, follow up with The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner for a matte, shine-free finish, and then finish with The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion that will keep your skin clear throughout the day.
Lastly would be The Body Shop’s makeup range. After all, beauty products are just as important as skin care products and body lotions. And The Body Shop incorporates just as much love, care and attention in their makeup products for their customers' satisfaction, as what can be seen in their new Fresh Nude Foundation range. Newly launched in the late part of 2015, the Fresh Nude Foundation was well received by many beauty bloggers around the world. While the foundation does not provide full coverage, it is lightweight and gives a semi-matte, healthy dewy finish that lasts all day as well as keeps your skin moisturized for up to 24 hours. It is a foundation that fulfills the needs of The Body Shop’s customers for something that both protects their skin and also enhances their natural beauty.
The Body Shop is big on its CSR initiatives. In 1985, the first year it became a public company, the brand sponsored posters for Greenpeace. After a year, the company formed an Environmental Projects Department of its own and collaborated with Greenpeace for its first major window campaign, ‘Save the Whale’. In 1997, they were the first international cosmetics company to sign up to the Humane Cosmetics Standard. The company also initiated their own ‘Against Animal Testing’ campaign that led to a UK-wide ban on animal testing of cosmetic products and ingredients in 1998.
Since then, the company has gone from environmental protection to fights for human rights in various improvised countries around the globe. The brand has always been big on raising awareness for various issues around the globe and has collaborated with others to stop domestic violence, raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, stop violence against children, and so much more. Among the list of campaigns that they have started/supported are:
- Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People (with ECPAT International)
- Get Lippy: Prevent HIV (raised awareness of HIV and AIDS with MTV International and raised over £2mil for charity partner, the Staying Alive Foundation)
- Stop Violence In The Home (with MTV)
- You Are Better Than Bullying (with The Reach Foundation)
- White Ribbon Day (raising awareness to prevent violent and abusive relationships as well as raising funds for the White Ribbon Foundation)
