This article is about the cosmetics company. For other uses, see Body shop. The Body Shop International Limited The Body Shop, Oxford Street Type Subsidiary Industry Cosmetics Founded 27 March 1976; 43 years ago Founder Anita Roddick Headquarters London Bridge, London, United Kingdom Number of locations About 3, 000  Key people David Boynton ( CEO) Products Skin care cosmetics fragrances Revenue US$ 1. 4 billion (2017) Number of employees 10, 000 (2017)  Parent L'Oréal (2006-2017) Natura (2017-present) Website Official website The Body Shop International Limited, trading as The Body Shop, is a cosmetics, skin care and perfume company which is a subsidiary of Brazilian company Natura & Co. Founded in 1976 in Brighton, UK by Dame Anita Roddick. It currently has a range of 1, 000 products which it sells in about 3, 000 owned and franchised stores internationally in more than 65 countries.  The company is based in London Bridge and Littlehampton, West Sussex.  The company is owned by a Brazilian cosmetics company Natura and part of the Natura & Co group. The company had been owned by the French cosmetics company L'Oréal between 2006 and 2017. In June 2017, L'Oréal agreed to sell the company to Natura for £880 million. The deal was approved in September 2017.   History [ edit] In 1970, founder Anita Roddick visited a health and beauty shop in Berkeley, California run by sisters-in-law Peggy Short and Jane Saunders. The shop, which was named "The Body Shop", sold naturally scented soaps and lotions, with products sold in simple packaging and refillable bottles.  Six years later Roddick opened her own health and beauty shop, also named The Body Shop, in her hometown of Brighton. The business' original vision was to sell products with ethically-sourced, cruelty-free and natural ingredients. None of Roddick's products were tested on animals, and the ingredients were sourced directly from producers.  The shop began trading with just 25 products. Roddick had purchased urine sample bottles from a nearby hospital to sell her products in, but did not have enough of them, creating the business' refillable bottles policy. Labels were hand-written and Roddick did not advertise explicitly, preferring to rely on local press instead.  In 1977, Roddick purchased another shop through selling 50% of the business to a local garage owner. Roddick's partner, Gordon, returned to Brighton from America in this time, and suggested the business foster growth through franchising. By 1984, the business had 138 stores, 87 of which were not located in the United Kingdom; by 1994, 89% of the business' locations would be franchises.  The business went public in April of 1984, and was floated on London's Unlisted Securities Market, opening at a price of 95p, with the Roddicks keeping 27. 6% shares in the company, and Anita continued as managing director so as to retain control of the company's direction. After it obtained a full listing on the London Stock Exchange, share prices in the company increased dramatically, with prices rising 10, 944 percent in the first eight years.  Throughout the 1980s and 90s, the company joined a number of campaigns related to social responsibility and environmental issues. These included a "Trade Not Aid" campaign in 1987, wherein the company sourced some of its ingredients directly from the native communities they originated from. The company also made alliances with Greenpeace and Amnesty International.  In 1987, Roddick offered $3. 5 million to the owners of the original Body Shop, Peggy Short and Jane Saunders, for the exclusive rights to the business' name. They agreed to the sale, and in 1992 changed their business' name to "Body Time".  The business closed in 2018.  The business began trading in the United States in 1988, with all new stores in the States being company-owned until 1990. L'Oréal [ edit] In March 2006, The Body Shop agreed to a £652. 3 million takeover by L'Oréal. It was reported that the Roddicks made £130 million from the sale.  Media controversy surrounding the sale, particularly centred on L'Oréal and its use of animal testing; though L'Oréal ceased animal testing itself in 1989,  it had been selling in China since 1997,  where it is law that cosmetics be tested on animals before going to sale. Roddick stated that she believed she could be a "trojan horse" inside the company, working to improve its standards on animal testing and environmental issues.  In September of 2007, Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop, died following a major brain hemorrhage.  Following her death, she was recognised by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown as a businesswoman who "campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so".  The executive director of Greenpeace, John Sauven, said that Roddick was an "inspiration" to those campaigning on environmental and human rights issues.  In 2017, L’Oreál sold The Body Shop to Brazilian cosmetics company Natura in a deal of €1 billion.  In 2019 The Body Shop received its B-Corp certification.

The network was established in 1994.  Distributors (or consultants) can also recruit others to sell the products.  The Body Shop At Home currently operates in the UK and Australia. The multilevel marketing program was known as "The Body Shop Direct" in Britain, and was first trialled in Australia in Gippsland in 1997.  In 1998, the Australian division was featured in the Australian Financial Review for their motivational-based policy of funding unrelated courses for home distributors, such as tarot reading or French polishing.  In 2003, Anita Roddick parted with her publisher HarperCollins, but despite this, planned to release two titles. She was advised that The Body Shop outlets would not stock the books, but that they would be made available through The Body Shop At Home™.  That same year, Roddick predicted that the company's home sales would fuel growth, and eventually exceed the sales of retail outlets.  In 2018, there were about 15, 000 consultants in the United Kingdom and about 2, 500 in Australia. In 2014, the Mail reported that young people in Surrey were being targeted online by The Body Shop At Home™ distributors. The consultant would advertise "free parties", and then the teenagers would feel pressured to buy products. It was highlighted that The Body Shop's parent company L'Oreal, was a signatory to a voluntary pledge from the Advertising Association, prohibiting the use of people under 16 years of age in peer-to-peer marketing. The Body Shop responded that the home consultants are self-employed, but that teenagers were not actively targeted to be party hosts or work as consultants. The consultant in question claimed that the teenager's mother had agreed to the party and been present for the duration.  In 2014, an unfair dismissal case ruled against The Body Shop (Adidem Pty Ltd T/A The Body Shop v Suckling  FWCFB 3611). Nicole Suckling worked in an administrative support role for The Body Shop At Home and began a role as an independent direct candle seller for company PartyLite. The Body Shop alleged that Suckling's access to their confidential contractual information could threaten The Body Shop's commercial interests.  [ edit] The social activism dimension of the company first evidenced in 1986 when The Body Shop proposed an alliance with Greenpeace in the UK to save the whales. Roddick began launching other promotions tied to social causes, with much public and media interest. The Body Shop regularly featured posters on shop windows and sponsorship of local charity and community events. Over time, Roddick blossomed into a full-time critic of business in general and the cosmetic industry in particular, criticising what she considered the environmental insensitivity of the industry and traditional views of beauty, and aimed to change standard corporate practices  Roddick said: "For me, campaigning and good business is also about putting forward solutions, not just opposing destructive practices or human rights abuses".  In 1997, Roddick launched a global campaign to raise self-esteem in women and against the media stereotyping of women [ citation needed]. It focused on unreasonably thin models in the context of rising numbers in bulimia and anorexia. Launched in 1987, The Body Shop’s Community Trade programme based on the practice of trading with communities in need and giving them a fair price for natural ingredients or handcrafts, including brazil nut oil, sesame seed oil, honey, and shea butter. The first Community Trade product was a wooden footsie roller which was supplied by a small community in Southern India, Teddy Exports, which is still a key Community Trade supplier.  The Body Shop now works with 31 suppliers in over 23 different countries, benefiting 25, 000 people directly each year. [ citation needed] Criticism has been made of the programme by fair trade activists. "The company's prominently displayed claims claim to pay fairer prices to the Third World poor but covered less than a fraction of 1 percent of its turnover", wrote Paul Vallely, the former chair of Traidcraft, in the obituary of Anita Roddick published in The Independent. [ citation needed] Sometimes considered anti-capitalist or against globalisation, [ by whom? ] The Body Shop philosophy is in favour of international marketplaces. [ contradictory] The chain uses its influence and profits for programmes such as Community Trade, aimed at enacting fair labour practices, safe working environments and pay equality. According to The Body Shop, 95% of the company's products contain community traded ingredients. The Body Shop regularly invites employees and stakeholders to visit Community Trade suppliers to see the benefits that the Community Trade programme has brought to communities and The Body Shop products.  The Body Shop does not export its products to China, because of cosmetic animal testing regulation. However, The Body Shop has always sourced many of its baskets and other non-cosmetic supplies from China. [ citation needed] As part of the Community Trade programme, The Body Shop undertakes periodic social audits of its sourcing activities through Ecocert.  A campaign by Christian Peacemaker Team and other allies protested the alleged role of The Body Shop in purchasing palm oil from Daabon, a third-party supplier in Colombia, who forcefully evicted 123 families from their land at Las Pavas, Columbia on 14 July 2009.   The Body Shop initially denied intentionally purchasing palm oil from the Las Pavas area,  but later dropped Daabon as a supplier after the company failed to provide proof that it was not involved in the land seizures.    Policy on animal testing [ edit] The Body Shop has campaigned to end animal testing in cosmetics alongside animal cruelty NGO Cruelty-Free International since 1989. The company's products are non-animal tested and are certified cruelty-free by Cruelty Free International’s Leaping Bunny.  The Body Shop’s campaigning has led to many changes in the law. [ citation needed] The company’s campaign, Ban Animal Testing, launched in 1996 and led to a UK wide ban 8 years later. [ citation needed] In 2013, the campaign launched as Against Animal Testing and made history when the EU banned animal testing in cosmetics, and marketing of any animal tested products. In June 2017, The Body Shop and Cruelty-Free International launched Forever Against Animal Testing, its largest ever campaign, aimed at banning animal testing in cosmetics everywhere and forever. [ citation needed] The campaign aims to receive 8 million signatures to present to the United Nations, to call for a global ban on animal testing in cosmetics. By the end of 2018, the petition had reached 8. 3 million signatures and was taken to the United Nations. [ citation needed] In October 2009, The Body Shop was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the RSPCA in Britain, in recognition of its uncompromised policy which ensures ingredients are not tested by its suppliers.  The Body Shop Foundation [ edit] The Roddicks founded The Body Shop Foundation in 1990, which supports innovative global projects working in the areas of human and civil rights and environmental and animal protection. It is The Body Shop International's charitable trust funded by annual donations from the company and through various fundraising initiatives.  The Body Shop Foundation was formed to consolidate all the charitable donations made by the company. To date, The Body Shop Foundation has donated over £24 million sterling in grants. The Foundation regularly gives gift-in-kind support to various projects and organisations such as Children On The Edge (COTE).  Approximately 65% of the grants that the company funds come to nominations from the staff, consultants or franchisers attached to the company from all over the world. In 2017, The Body Shop announced its new approach to corporate philanthropy, the World Bio-Bridges Mission (Re-Wilding the World). The purpose of the World Bio-Bridges Mission is to enrich biodiversity around the world while creating truly sustainable supply chains where possible.  Products [ edit] The Body Shop carries a wide range of products for the body, face, hair and home. The Body Shop claims its products are "inspired by nature" and feature ingredients such as marula oil and sesame seed oil sourced through the Community Trade program. Products include: Body butters (including Moringa, Satsuma, Strawberry, Olive, Shea, Mango and Coconut) Body products such as body scrub, body butter and bath lilies Cosmetics (including mascara, lipstick, lip gloss, eye shadow and cotton rounds) Full skin care ranges (including Tea tree, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Aloe vera and Seaweed) Men's skin care (Including maca root and white musk) Hair care (including their famous Banana shampoo and Banana conditioner) Fragrances (Women's and Men's) Bath products including shower gels and solid soaps Controversies [ edit] The September 1994 investigative article "Shattered Image: Is The Body Shop Too Good to Be True?, " written by Jon Entine and published in Business Ethics magazine, created an international controversy and led to dozens of stories in the international media, including articles on The New York Times ' business section front page and on ABC World News Tonight. A flurry of news reports led to a temporary 50% drop in the market value of the stock of the company, which until that point had been considered a model "socially responsible" company. Entine reported that Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop International in the UK, had stolen the name, store design, marketing concept and most product line ideas from The Body Shop    founded in 1970 in Berkeley, California by Peggy Short and Jane Saunders who started the French-style perfume store, where customers could do their own blending. Roddick subsequently fabricated her story of travelling around the world discovering exotic beauty ingredients. In 1989, Roddick purchased the US and Israeli rights to The Body Shop name, and the Berkeley-based chain of five stores renamed itself Body Time. Roddick's unsubstantiated claims and inaccurate reports in popular articles and even some university case studies that Roddick's The Body Shop "gave most of its profits to charity", documents from Britain's Charity Commission showed that Roddick's company gave nothing to charity over its first 11 years and was penurious in its philanthropy thereafter. The Body Shop also faced millions of dollars in claims by disenchanted franchisees. Entine referred to The Body Shop's marketing as " greenwashing, " which was one of the first uses of that term. The article in Business Ethics (now defunct), which was cited with a National Press Club Award for Consumer Journalism in 1994, is still widely used in university business ethics classes and is generally credited with prompting companies claiming to be socially responsible to match their claims with operational practices and to increase transparency. The "Shattered Image" article had originally been scheduled to be published as a 10, 000-word feature in Vanity Fair earlier in 1994 but was dropped after legal threats by The Body Shop. The original article was eventually published in 2004 by The Nation Books in Killed: Great Journalism Too Hot to Print,  edited by David Wallis. Business Ethics, which had featured Roddick on its cover just the year before, subsequently agreed to print a much shorter version of the exposé. In April 2013 it was revealed that The Body Shop was charging Irish consumers up to 33% more than their London counterparts.  References [ edit] ^ a b Schipani, Andres (27 June 2017).

Media playback is unsupported on your device Media caption Balmy days: The Body Shop story "A confused shop with a mish-mash of products with no emphasis on the fact that this is supposed to be a shop specialising in cruelty-free, fair trade toiletries and make-up, " is Suzy Bourke's damning verdict on The Body Shop. The 42-year-old stage manager used to be a regular shopper at the High Street chain, but now she tends to go to Boots instead. And she's not alone. Its owner, cosmetics giant L'Oreal, wants to offload the High Street chain, which has been suffering slowing sales. The Body Shop, founded by Dame Anita Roddick in 1976, was a pioneer using natural ingredients for its beauty products when it started out. It initially thrived, expanding rapidly, and by the 1980s was one of the most well-known brands on the High Street. I remember the chain fondly from my youth, when it seemed to be an exciting shop full of affordable, fun and exciting products. Coloured animal soaps, banana shampoo, white musk perfume and strawberry shower gel were the height of 1980s beauty chic as far as I was concerned. But by the early 2000s, rivals had caught up, with firms such as Boots, for example, developing similar natural beauty ranges. New challengers such as Lush also emerged, encroaching on The Body Shop's market share. Image copyright Jean Bourke Image caption "You never see a Body Shop busy any more, they always used to be packed, " says Suzy Bourke The chain is still a sizeable High Street presence with more than 3, 000 stores in 66 countries and employs 22, 000 people, according to its website. The Body Shop's results for 2016 show total sales were 920. 8m euros (£783. 8m), down from 967. 2m euros in 2015, which L'Oreal blamed on market slowdowns in Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia. The sales were a tiny proportion of L'Oreal's overall 25. 8bn euros of sales for the same period. And arguably the chain - which L'Oreal bought for £652m ($1. 14bn) in 2006 - remains a lower-end and insignificant part of its huge portfolio of brands, which include skincare specialists Kiehl's, Lancome and Garnier, as well as fragrance brands Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani. Veteran retail analyst Richard Hyman argues that L'Oreal overpaid for the chain and has failed to add any value to it. "Frankly it's a bit of mystery them buying it in the first place. "What they bought is a retailer and what they're good at is brands, " he says. Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images The Body Shop's use of natural ingredients made it a pioneer when it started out in 1976 He thinks The Body Shop's struggles are down to the same issues facing the retail sector as a whole: competition from an ever-increasing number of shops all muscling in on the same territory, from supermarkets to fashion chains the seemingly unstoppable popularity of online shopping the high cost of running a large number of shops "Retailing in shops is becoming an increasingly challenging business. You've got to have a very compelling retail proposition as opposed to a brand or product proposition. "Everyone that shops in The Body Shop spends most of their personal care budget somewhere else. They're constantly chasing their tail, having to work hard to attract people into a store, " he says. When the 2006 deal was struck, founder Dame Anita - who died just a year later - was forced to reject claims that The Body Shop, known for its ethically sourced goods, was joining with "the enemy". There were concerns that some of the ingredients L'Oreal then used in its products had been tested on animals, while The Body Shop was publicly opposed to animal testing. The French firm insisted the brand would complement its existing offering, giving it increased presence in the "masstige" sector - mass market combined with prestige. But Charlotte Pearce, an analyst at consultancy GlobalData Retail, believes the firm has "slightly lost its way" under L'Oreal's ownership. "While The Body Shop's heritage is strong, it needs to work on its brand perception. It's not known as a brand which is innovative and new, and it's failed to keep up with market trends - contour sticks, kits and palettes were a strong trend in 2016, and these are nowhere to be seen in The Body Shop's range, " she says. Analysts say The Body Shop has lost its cachet as a fashionable brand These days the firm is not seen as "a trendy brand", but mostly as a shop for gifting and low-value items, such as its body butters and body lotions, she says. "With premium retailers such as Jo Malone and Liz Earle offering in-store treatments, there is more that The Body Shop could be doing to raise its profile and improve the customer experience, " she adds. Nonetheless, Prof John Colley from Warwick Business School believes there will still be plenty of interest from private equity funds. He expects the firm to be sold with its current separate management team, who he says are likely to have their own ideas for how to improve it. "When a major corporate has decided it doesn't want a business, it will sell it, probably, whatever the price. "They [L'Oreal] are trying to get rid of it because it's underperforming. But anyone bidding will see a clear turnaround. Independent ownership would probably serve the firm well. A refreshed image would almost certainly work, " he says. Mr Hyman, too, believes a new owner could improve The Body Shop, particularly by selling the chain's products outside its own shops. But he says trying to offload the large store estate with long committed leases will be a hindrance to any buyer. "That's not to say it isn't a business with potential, but it could perform much more strongly, " he says. The Body Shop's ethical foundations PA Dame Anita Roddick, who founded the firm in 1976 at the age of 34, said her original motivation for the firm was simply to make a living for herself and her two daughters while her husband was away travelling.
