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.

?I myself, I use it all the time?I have three kids and three businesses,? says The B12 Store owner Lisa Ruiz in an interview in the Journal Times. Lisa and the team at this Regency Mall shop tout the benefits of dodging vitamin B12 deficiency by partaking in weekly, fortnightly, or monthly supplement injections. Outside of the syringe, B12 can be found in dietary sources such as meat, dairy, and bingo balls?and its consumption may help stave off concerns such as fatigue and GI troubles.

The appearance enhancers at Bello Salon & Spa spruce up dull hairstyles and unkempt nails with a wide selection of image-adjusting services. A pedicure indulges tired digits with a relaxing footbath. Keratin whisperers will shape, buff, and trim cuticles, readying toes for debuts in sandals and grade-school productions of The Crucible. Afterward, the pedicurist will exfoliate feet, wrap them in warm towels, and massage every piggie before coating nails with fresh polish that can last from three to five weeks. Alternatively, customers can request a cut and color to transform hair into a new shape, such as a chic pixie cut or a geometrically perfect hexagon. Stylists will also revive lackluster 'dos with a coating of vibrant color before completing the look by styling strands with Aveda products.

Wisconsin Vision’s crew screens eyes for aberrations and illnesses and presides over an extensive selection of designer frames and lenses. At each location, optometrists perform thorough exams, producing prescriptions that recommend single-vision or progressive lenses from Zeiss. Newly ground lenses can then be fitted into any number of designer frames from the likes of Ray-Ban, Coach, or Calvin Klein. Antiscratch coatings protect the glass panes, and Transitions lenses allow any set of specs to turn into sunglasses when one steps outside or auditions for a classic-rock band.
