About Us

Our company

The Body Shop was founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick in Brighton, England. It all started as a small shop providing quality skincare products in refilled bottles and with the belief that business could be a force for good and the world - our source of beauty.

Since then The Body Shop has become a global retail business serving over 30 million customers worldwide, employs 22,000 people and operates over 3,000 stores in more than 60 countries. We have exported innovative products, campaigns that matter and an ethical approach to business all over the globe.

We couldn’t have done any of this without our inspirational people and their commercial instincts.

If you share our passion for doing business differently, The Body Shop is the place for you to grow your career – and help us grow too.

What we stand for

We create naturally-inspired beauty products from sustainably sourced ingredients from all around the world. We always stand up and campaign for what's right. Our mission is to become the world’s most ethical and truly sustainable business.

To achieve this, we have introduced our Enrich Not Exploit TM Commitment (It's In Our Hands).

“The business of business should not just be about the money, it should be about responsibility. It should be about public good. not private greed.”

Dame Anita Roddick

What this all means for you

Our employees are fully engaged with who we are and what we stand for. They are volunteering in their local communities individually or as teams, and often campaigning with us.

Our Commitment

We launched our Enrich Not Exploit TM Commitment (It’s in our hands) in 2016.

As part of our commitment, we have set 14 targets we aim to complete by 2020 that are the first step towards achieving our aim to become the world's most ethical and truly sustainable business. We have committed to work fairly with farmers and suppliers, be 100% vegetarian and will always be Forever Against Animal Testing.

The world’s biggest challenges are ahead of us.

It’s our responsibility to ensure our business is fit for the future: a positive and sustainable future. Our targets are based on the following core pillars:

Enrich our people

We commit to continue our Community Trade programme (something we pioneered 30 years ago), we campaign for what's right, we give economically vulnerable people access to work and we nourish our employees' personal development.
