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.
In his own words, surgeon Dr. Wafik Hanna believes firmly that "your face is your calling card." That's why he works with, and not against, his patients' own natural looks. Guided by his philosophy of naturalness, he takes patients' existing bone structure into account when helping them achieve desired complexions and contours. And while many patients opt for surgical services, those preferring non-surgical procedures can opt to rejuvenate their skin with a photofacial, injectables, or thermage, a treatment that tightens the skin. In the 25 years since he opened Hanna Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hanna has showcased his talents not only in his portfolio, but by sharing his wisdom on the pages of The New York Times.

For more than 20 years, the sauce slingers at Baldinelli Pizza have been spinning out thin-crust pies, italian subs, and hearty pastas. More than 20 vegetable and meat toppings lounge on pizzas, the circumferences of which range from 7 inches for individual pies to 18 inches for pizzas large enough to bid to host the Olympics. Subs layer ham, salami, and turkey with provolone, tomato, and onions to create thick sandwiches that can be eaten cold or toasted. Homemade meat or marinara sauces lather up pastas such as mostaccioli, and meatballs perch atop noodle tangles before the lifting of a golden Chachapoyan idol releases them to thunder down slopes and into mouth tunnels.
Board-certified general and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Demetrios Katsaros—who trained at the Cleveland Clinic, the Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas M. D.
