THE STORY OF THE BODY SHOP

Our story started in 1976. It began with our founder, Anita Roddick, opening a little green shop in Brighton with a belief in something revolutionary: that business could be a force for good. We’ve never been your average cosmetics company, with over 40 years of campaigning, change-making and smashing beauty industry standards – and we’re still going strong. Welcome to The Body Shop.

DISCOVER OUR PURPOSE

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. Read our brand manifesto and discover how our purpose and beliefs are truly at the heart of everything we do.

THE NATURA &CO FAMILY

Natura &Co represents four iconic beauty brands united by purpose. Together, Natura, Avon, Aesop and The Body Shop form the fourth largest beauty group in the world, with a global family of 40,000 employees in over 100 countries. We’re connected by a shared commitment to sustainable and ethical business practices. Find out how we’re becoming a driving force for social change in the beauty industry.

TBS (as part of Natura&co) is committed to packaging circularity, with a published target of having 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging  materials by 2030, as well as additional commitments to ethical and sustainable sourcing of  critical materials.
Aluminium is a highly reusable and recyclable packaging material for our products. However production of both virgin and recycled aluminium can entail  significant social and environmental risks that require mitigation.  We believe ASI is the leading multi-stakeholder collaboration with a mission to achieve responsible sourcing of aluminium at scale.
