  • The Body Shop
    To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.? Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

  • Forever Flawless
    Each vial of facial cream, cleanser, and lotion from the collections of Forever Flawless blend scientific skincare and the luxury of genuine diamonds. Cosmetic experts infuse the products with micronized natural diamond powder, which gently exfoliates dead skin cells, allowing creams and serums to better penetrate the skin. These products, which are divided into color-coded collections, pamper skin with other luxurious ingredients, too. The most opulent line, the platinum collection, features a snake-venom correcting cream. The cream contains an advanced peptide that mimics Waglerin 1, a polypeptide located in the venom of the temple viper, a snake found in the remote jungles of Borneo and occasionally fighting Samuel L. Jackson on a plane. This synthetic venom works like botulinum toxin and blocks nerve signals that tell facial muscles to contract, keeping faces wrinkle-free. Forever Flawless also beautifies clients with a wealth of body scrubs, nailcare kits, men's products, and perfumes.
