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.

The team at European Spa Boutique administers a thoughtful blend of naturally derived and technologically advanced treatments. A less-irritating, antiseptic wax made from soybeans is used for hair removal, and heated lava stones warm achy muscles during body treatments. For the extensive selection of facials, aestheticians call upon both methods of treatment: botanical extracts calm acned skin, chemical peels are harvested from chocolate and berries, and microcurrent and LED-light therapies are designed to increase collagen production and dissipate fine lines.

The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
