The Body Shop was founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick in Brighton, England. The Body Shop story started with the belief that business could be a force for good. The Body Shop has always done things differently and created innovative, naturally-inspired products.
The first Indian store opened in Mumbai in 2006- since than we ‘have opened more than 148 store across India.
Today its Enrich Not Exploit™ Commitment is stronger than ever. The Body Shop is dedicated to enriching people as well as the planet, working fairly with farmers and suppliers and helping communities thrive through its Community Trade program. The Body Shop has never tested any of its ingredients or products on animals and never will.

At the heart of our business are our values. In everything we do we are committed to helping protect the planet, defending human rights, activating self-esteem, supporting community trade and remaining strong on our stance against animal testing. It is not just part of our jobs - it is part of our corporate DNA!
We were the first international cosmetics brand to be awarded the Humane Cosmetics Standard for our Against Animal Testing policy. 20 years ago. The Body Shop® created its own fair trade program called Community Trade. By satisfying our demand for ingredients, gifts and accessories in a fair way we help create sustainable trading relationships with marginalised communities around the world.
We believe business has the power to make the right kind of difference to the world, and the best way to convince others is to lead by example. All our products are made with a love of life and the world we live in, individuality, community spirit and a commitment to trading fairly.
