The soul of beauty
To us, beauty is a feeling, a natural way of being, where character, self-esteem and humour are freely expressed and celebrated. That’s the soul of beauty. It’s not just about looking beautiful. It’s about exuding a vibrant attitude to life.
Our incredible planet
Our commitment to seeking and sustaining natural materials and ingredients, and using all our planet’s resources wisely, guides our approach to business. We set challenging environmental targets, which we detail in our bi-annual Values Reports. We were one of the first to make a stand against animal testing in the cosmetics industry, and through The Body Shop Foundation, we continue to fund organisations campaigning to end the needless suffering of animals. different and proud
At the heart of our business are our Values. In everything we do we're committed to helping protect the planet, defend human rights, activate self esteem, support Community Trade and ensure everything is animal cruelty free. It's not just part of our jobs, it's part of our DNA.
Against animal testing
Every one of our products is animal cruelty free and vegetarian. In fact we were the first international cosmetics brand to be recognized under the Humane Cosmetics Standard for our Against Animal Testing policy.
For trading fairly
We believe in fair trade to such an extent, that over 20 years ago we set up our own fair trade programme, called Community Trade. We believe this level of commitment to trading fairly is unique in the cosmetics industry. Community Trade now works with over 30 suppliers in more than 20 countries, providing over 25,000 people across the globe with essential income to build their futures. Most of our products contain Community Trade ingredients.
