  • For Eyes Optical
    Though there are 130 For Eyes Optical stores around the United States, the company still has the heart of a small start-up. Owned and operated since 1972, when a small group of friends started it in Philadelphia, aiming for quality eyewear manufacturing as well as customer service. These same friends, aided by a few family members, still lead the franchise today. They ensure that each location adheres to their original principles and mandates for mustard-colored shag carpets. In each store, expert independent doctors test clients' visual acuity and general eye health with comprehensive exams. Then, a store associate helps each person outfit their eyes with designer frames by brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, D&G, and Versace. For Eyes Optical has its own advanced 40,000-square foot optical lab in in Hialeah, Florida, where technicians shape, surface, and coat the lenses to fit each person's exact prescription. After creating the lenses?whether plastic, polycarbonate, or trivex Toughlites?they inspect and fit each into its corresponding frame by hand, a process that ensures quality control and guards against the robots, whose first objective is to hinder our eyesight.

  • 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.

  • Chic Afrique Herbals
    Growing up in Nigeria, Victoria Onwuchekwa became familiar with the treatment of human-health issues at a young age. That's because pharmacology was her family's legacy—her mother was one of the first female pharmacists in the nation. Advised by her mother to “do something to benefit your people,” Onwuchekwa earned degrees in physiology and pharmacology. Then, she earned a master's of science degree in industrial pharmacy and cosmetic science and began designing bath and body products for a company she named Chic Afrique Herbals. In her West Philadelphia laboratory, Onwuchekwa fuses modern cosmetic technology with traditional African ingredients such as shea butter and sweet-almond oil to produce natural products that moisturize and protect the skin and hair. Among her creations are jojoba-rich Odara moringa conditioning hair food, enriched black soap that deep cleans with a luxurious lather, and Oyin honey butter, a natural emollient. Dermatologist-approved and never tested on animals, the company's products are made in small batches and packaged by hand.
