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 Paradise Permanent Makeup has been tattooing clients with long-lasting eyeliner, brow color, and other enhancements for more than 30 years. They custom-mix all of their pigments, which allows them to match clients’ skin tones perfectly and ensures realistic results. The service can benefit those who have lost hair, want to avoid daily makeup application, or are dealing with scarring. To slim physiques, clients can opt for herbal and infrared body wraps. The wrap's effects are enhanced with Paradise Permanent Makeup's Bye Bye Cellulite Lotion, which aims to break down fat cells, build collagen, and improve particle absorption. In addition to permanent makeup, Paradise offers waxing, traditional tattoos, and classes and apprenticeships that teach the trade of permanent makeup.
