A universal beauty brand with an advocacy of making people feel great not just for the face and the body, but for the soul as well, The Body Shop is incredibly the best.
Founded by a human rights activist, Anita Roddick in 1976 in Brighton, England, she believes that, “The business of business should not just be about money, it should be about responsibility. It should be about public good not private greed.”
Thus, making it a pioneer of the philosophy emphasizing that a business should be established for public good. And it continuously scaled up its vision when L’Oréal, currently its Parent Company, acquired The Body Shop in 2006.
The Body Shop has been inspired to have a positive difference globally by giving only the best of the bests from high quality hair care and naturally-inspired skincare to ethically and sustainably produce make-up and many more. In fact, it trades in many parts of the world, specifically in more than 60 countries with more than 3,000 stores nationwide and The Body Shop New Zealand is just one of its best stores.
And who could not love a business which involves itself in Community Trade?
Being the first company to institute fair trade to the toiletries and cosmetics industry in 1987 is already an indication that The Body Shop gives utmost significance to all the parties of the business. Yes, this kind of business is so unique that it does not think of its own.
The Body Shop aims to trade fairly to small scale farmers, rural cooperatives, and traditional artisans from the four corners of the globe. First and foremost, these people need us for them to earn for a living. They deserve our acknowledgment because they are also experts in the field, serving as sources of fine raw accessories and ingredients. It is just that, some of them are not given the opportunity to be known, which lead them to obtain lower income.
The Body Shop thinks of creative ways to foster them. And this is done through a unique Community Trade (CT) programme which started almost 20 years ago. And this program is of major advantage until now because these people are given the chance to be known in the entire world through their hard work.
Since the suppliers of The Body Shop came from more than 20 countries, more than 25,000 people are given the privilege to earn income for the future of their families.
Indeed, The Body Shop considers not just for its personal benefit, but also for the good of others. Good trading practices as well as independence-building prices are also offered in exchange. And of course, most of the products consists of Community Trade ingredients, which is clearly excellent for us!
And aside from that, The Body Shop has established its Charitable Foundation! This type of strategy is selfless, thinking of others gain aside from its own.
Yes! The love for its community does not stop The Body shop to build its own charity! The Body Shop Foundation was created since 1990 giving financial support to businesses which have little hope of conventional funding. And at the same time, working individuals are given assistance to achieve the progression in many areas such as civil and human rights as well as animal and environmental protection.
And being a part of an enormous international business, the Body Shop New Zealand is an ethical business, just like other The Body Shop branches, that has a lot to offer!
