The Body Shop
When Anita Roddick founded The Body Shop in 1976, she had a vision. Business as a force for good that’s us. Over 40 years later, we’re proud to be pioneering cruelty-free beauty every step of the way.
We’re the original ethical beauty brand. We’ve got a thing for empowering people and enriching our planet. We’re all about keeping it real, in every way possible.
Our activist roots remain a huge part of everything we do, from our iconic window posters to our vegetarian products to our infamous campaigns.
We’re never afraid to stand up and speak the truth. We like to do things a little differently around here.
The Body Shop, along with Aesop and Natura, is part of Natura & Co, a global, multi-channel and multi-brand cosmetics group that is committed to generating positive economic, social and environmental impact.
Group owner Natura is Brazil's number one cosmetics manufacturer. Sustainable development has been the company's guiding principle since it was founded in 1969.
In fact, this is an incredibly exciting time for The Body Shop. We’re fighting for what we believe in now more than ever.
No holding back. Breaking the mould has always come naturally to us, and we need someone who’s not afraid to mix things up.
