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 founders of ecomom believe there's a connection between the health of children and the environment. To this end, every product they sell goes through a 70-point inspection, which checks for everything from eco-friendly ingredients to fair-trade practices. After an item passes, the staff lists it on the website, and helpful icons indicate which goods are organic, nontoxic, and gluten free.

This process can make it easy for parents to find chemical-free baby foods such as Plum Organics Mish Mash, recyclable diapers from brands such as gDiapers, and all sorts of toxin-free bath toys. The store's merchandise isn't limited to young humans; a selection of organic makeup and beauty tools, shaving supplies, and newspaper clippings about the dangers of jumping on the bed cater to the interests of adults.

ecomom’s adviser board includes Jonathan Greenblatt–the director of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation and co-founder of Ethos Water–and Dr. Alan Green–founding president of Board of Society for Participatory Medicine and author of eco-minded childcare literature. The board constantly looks for new criteria in selecting products. The company also donates meals to food banks and emergency organizations for every online order placed.
