Founded in 1976 in Brighton, England, by Anita Roddick, The Body Shop® is a global beauty

brand built on making people feel so good  – face, body and soul. The Body Shop® seeks to

make a positive difference in the world by offering high-quality, naturally-inspired skincare,

hair care and make-up produced ethically and sustainably. The Body Shop® pioneered the

philosophy that business can be a force for good.


The Body Shop® was the first international cosmetics company to introduce fair trade to the

cosmetics and toiletries industry in 1987. Through a unique Community Trade (CFT)

programme, The Body Shop® sources fine raw ingredients and accessories from the four

corners of the globe, with a commitment to trade fairly with small-scale farmers, traditional

artisans and rural co-operatives that are experts in their field. In exchange, we offer good

trading practices and independence-building prices.
