  • 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.

  • Makeup by Nicole Fae
    Whether applying makeup to clients or creating a new line of products, makeup artist Nicole Fae concentrates not on concealing flaws, but rather on highlighting each individual?s beauty. The cosmetic devotee brings this philosophy to her expansive retail emporium, where she vends her original line of foundations, eye and lip makeup, and lotions and cleansers. Knowing that the ability to correctly apply makeup, unlike the ability to correctly execute a flying barrel roll, is not innately coded in every woman?s DNA, Nicole also hosts one-on-one private lessons to teach proper application and color use tailored to the individual and occasion. Additionally, the aesthetic artist invites groups of six or more to cavort at brow parties, where she demonstrates how to maintain eye arches in between wax visits.
