HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
The Body Shop was founded back in 1976 by Anita Roddick, following her visit to a small retailer with the same name in Berkeley, California six years prior.
The American version was housed in a car repairs garage and sold naturally-scented soaps and body lotions, employing only immigrant women. Moving the business to the UK, Roddick bought the name from the American firm and experienced rapid growth almost immediately, expanding at a rate of 50% year-on-year as eco-friendly consumers spread the word.
In 1984, The Body Shop floated stock for the first time on the London Stock Exchange and the original 95p price increased by more than 500%!
Turning increasingly to social and environmental justice campaigning to promote its products, Roddick ruled out any animal testing and launched international marketing efforts to raise awareness of animal welfare and the self-esteem of women. Way before its time, The Body Shop began employing plus-sized women and produced items for a range of skin types and colours.
In early 2006, Roddick sold The Body Shop to L’Oreal for £652.3million to mass controversy. She later explained to the press that she hoped to use her new position within a wider business to influence their decisions and policies. Sadly, Anita passed away a year later in 2007 and L’Oreal moved the company largely away from her original values. A decade later, L’Oreal sold the business on and Natura set about returning The Body Shop to its former glory.
Now the company is striving to win back its reputation and has immediately struck out any products with any ingredients of uncertain origin or that may have been tested on animals. A large vegan range has been introduced, and the fragrances have been updated since the 90s in line with current demand (no more Dewberry or Fuzzy Peach, but instead Matcha Tea and Almond Milk).
The Body Shop sells its own-brand stock both online and in physical shops, and the range is bigger than ever; proving that cruelty-free health and beauty is achievable on the high street. Current products include cleansers and toners, shaving products, moisturisers and face treatments, body butters, oils and serums, bath time and shower products, hair care, perfumes, a full make-up range, and gift sets of their most popular fragrances. The brand’s classic ranges such as Vitamin E enriched treatments and Wild Argan Oils are also still available but have been joined by various new fragrances and featured ingredients.
Even if you’re able to shop in-store in your local area, it’s worth logging on to The Body Shop’s revamped website simply for the wealth of information and the chance to find a body shop discount promo code! Their blogs include not just product-plugs but also tips and advice for various health, skin and body issues, guides to the benefits of specific natural ingredients, and relaxation and wellbeing information. There are loads there; so have a skim read through and you’re bound to find something that works for you!
More About The Body Shop
British cosmetics and health product shop The Body Shop seemed a cult shopping destination for all during the 1990s and was synonymous with founder Anita Roddick’s activist spirit and passion for quirky fragrances at the forefront of all they did.
However, the chain, which has stores found on most high streets around the UK, was sold by Roddick to L’Oreal in 2006 and the parent company’s reputation for testing on animals and producing products en masse didn’t resonate with The Body Shop’s customers, and the brand fell out of favour.
Anita Roddick sadly passed away a year later, and for many, the furore of The Body Shop’s sale ended and other news stories took over. What didn’t make the news nearly as heavily was the fact that in 2017 L’Oreal sold The Body Shop to a Brazilian cosmetics chain, Natura; whose natural approach and strictly no-animal-testing policies position the brand back with those who took their custom elsewhere a decade ago.
