The Body Shop was founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick in Brighton, England. The Body Shop story started with the belief that business could be a force for good, and has always done things differently and created innovative, naturally-inspired products.
Today its Enrich Not Exploit™ Commitment is stronger than ever. The Body Shop is dedicated to enriching people as well as the planet, working fairly with farmers and suppliers and helping communities thrive through its Community Trade programme. The Body Shop has never tested any of its ingredients or products on animals and never will.
The Body Shop is an iconic British retail brand with an extensive and growing global presence. It now employs more than 22,000 people in over 60 countries around the world. It has exported innovative products, campaigns that matter, an ethical approach to business and its unique English irreverence to countries all over the globe.
