For many years, The Body Shop® has constantly sought out wonderful natural ingredients from all four corners of the globe, and brings you products bursting with effectiveness to enhance your natural beauty. While doing all of this The Body Shop® also strives to protect this beautiful planet and the people who depend on it — not because it's fashionable, but based on the belief that it's the only way to do business.
More than 30 years have passed since Dame Anita Roddick began her extraordinary journey with The Body Shop® and pioneered the simple idea that "businesses have the power to do good," leading to the birth of the original, ethical cosmetics company. Today, this philosophy continues to drive everything The Body Shop does and the company celebrates this as "Nature's Way to Beautiful."

The Body Shop became the first cosmetics company to source sustainably harvested palm oil and introduce the ingredient into the beauty industry, working in partnership with a certified organic producer in Colombia, in 2007.

The Body Shop introduced 100% PCR bottles (post consumer recycled) while all its PET bottles (polyethylene terephthalate) currently contain at the minimum 30% recycled material, with a target to convert to 100% within the next 12 months.

The Body Shop has committed to becoming Carbon Neutral by 2010, ensuring that carbon dioxide emissions from the company's core retail business worldwide are reduced.

"I have not been in to a Body Shop for years, and recently went into the one in the Tacoma Mall looking for a specific item. When I went into the store I was greeted almost instantly by the sales asso...."
"I love this store and wish they would open one in the Olympia area. I have to drive to Tacoma to go there. They carry some great smelling stuff and I love shopping there..."
"The Body Shop is always a fun place to buy gifts or something special and pampering for yourself. They have a nice wide selection of scents and types of products. They run a little pricey, but it is well worth the cost. It gets very busy during the holiday season, and the store is pretty small, but they usually have good promotions..."
"This store has less of a fruity fragrance than others, and the creams/lotions or scents are more natural smelling, reminding me of incense. While this store is really nice, it's not always the best smell and not everything smells as good. I like the fruity fragrances much more. The staff is very nice always and lets you sample some of the products..."
