  • The Body Shop Wake Forest
    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.

  • Oro Gold Cosmetics National City
    Oro Gold Cosmetics' luxurious products and treatments renew and invigorate skin with applications of the most precious and prized of metals. Skin technicians use the time-tested healing qualities of gold to reduce fine lines in a procedure once reserved only for awards statues or the victims of Bond villains. Molecules of Au suspended in colloidal potions pass into pores, smoothing out visible wrinkles and lessening the appearance of sun damage. In addition to instilling faces and bodies with its radiant properties, gold-based products work to moisturize, build collagen, and control oil production with a range of specially formulated serums.

  • Celebrity Teeth Whitening
    Spend a few minutes watching an awards show on TV, and you'll notice that nearly all the celebrities have something in common: enviably white teeth. Celebrity Teeth Whitening makes it simple for customers to achieve their own megawatt smiles with a hydroxyl-radical whitening process. At a kiosk located in the Westfield North County Mall, specialists guide clients through the self-application of a gum protectant and pH-neutral whitening gel. The gel reacts to the mouth's moisture, breaking up stubborn stains to brighten teeth up to eight shades without damaging enamel.

  • Heaven Healing
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? As an Encinitas local, my passion is to make clients feel at home and comfortable while in the salon. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I practiced as a gemologist for over 10 years, then found my calling when opening Heaven Healing to make a positive difference in the day-to-day lives of those I meet. What do you love most about your job? There is no feeling like that of helping a client look and feel his or her best. From every brow wax to PCA peel, I can see the positive changes I am able to help people make. I love everything about my new career. What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? A woman I consider to be my very first client jumped off the table at first glance of her newly designed brows and exclaimed their perfection. I take great pride in my artistry and will forever remember that compliment and carry the positivity to each client I meet.
