The Body Shop

When Anita Roddick founded The Body Shop in 1976, she had a vision. Business as a force for good – that’s us. Over 40 years later, we’re proud to be pioneering cruelty-free beauty every step of the way. We’re the original ethical beauty brand. We’ve got a thing for empowering people and enriching our planet. We’re all about keeping it real, in every way possible. Our activist roots remain a huge part of everything we do, from our iconic window posters to our vegetarian products to our infamous campaigns. We’re never afraid to stand up and speak the truth. We like to do things a little differently around here. In 2019, we became a certified B Corp. That is a business that meets the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance transparency and accountability. B Corps don't just care about profit - they care about people and the planet too.

 

We believe equality is a human right. All people should have an equal opportunity to pursue their dreams and aspirations, regardless of beliefs, characteristics, and circumstances. Everybody has the right to live their life free from violence and discrimination. We want The Body Shop to be a great place to work and shop, whoever you are. We endeavor to be diverse and inclusive throughout our business. We celebrate the diversity of individual self-expression. We are unapologetically excited about life and the world and want everyone to experience all it has to offer. As such, we are passionate protagonists and advocates of social equality, equal rights, and equal opportunities, for each and every one, everywhere! Visit The Body Shop website to learn more. 

 

The Body Shop exists to fight for a fairer, more beautiful world. This is our purpose, and it drives everything we do. Our beliefs are everything to us: that business is a force for good, the empowerment of women and girls and the belief that everyone is beautiful.
