'My passionate belief is that business can be fun, it can be conducted with love and a powerful force for good.' – Anita Roddick

OUR STORY

Our story started in Brighton, England in 1976. It began with our founder, Anita Roddick, and her belief in something revolutionary: that business could be a force for good. Following her vision, we’ve been rule breaking, never faking and change making for over 40 years.
