The Body Shop
The Body Shop® is a global beauty brand built on making people feel good – face, body and soul. Founded in 1976, by Anita Roddick, it seeks to make a positive difference in the world by offering high-quality, naturally-inspired skincare, hair care and make-up produced ethically and sustainably. The Body Shop® has more than 3,000 stores in more than 60 countries including a number in Dublin City Centre (see list below).
In 1987, The Body Shop® was the first international cosmetics company to introduce fair trade to the cosmetics and toiletries industry in 1987. It is part of the Community Trade (CFT) programme and through this sources fine raw ingredients and accessories from the four corners of the globe, with a commitment to trade fairly with small-scale farmers, traditional artisans and rural co-operatives that are experts in their field. In exchange, they offer good trading practices and independence-building prices.
