OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19

In these extraordinary times, it can feel like we are facing challenges at every turn. But we’re a business that’s always done things a little differently. Our founder, Anita Roddick, believed in the power of small acts of kindness to make a difference to people’s lives. We’re continuing to put people first, by implementing important new measures in response to Covid 19 to protect our staff and make it safe to shop for our customers.

As Anita would say, it’s ‘business as unusual’.

HOW ARE WE SAFEGUARDING OUR CUSTOMERS AND STAFF?

The health and wellbeing of all our teams and customers is crucial to us and will always be our number one priority. We've worked with independent health and safety experts to out in place measures to ensure the safety of everyone in our stores when they reopen.

New store opening hours to help our teams travel safely.

We're limiting the amount of people allowed in store.

We'll be practising safe social distancing of two metres.

We're encouraging contactless card payments.

Our teams will still be smiling but they may be wearing masks and gloves.

There will be no skincare consultations or product demos.

Testers have been reduced to sprays and pumps.

Hand gel will be available around the store.

DELIVERY AND RETURNS

Free Delivery when you spend £25: Stay at home and we'll come to you – if you need to stock up on essentials, or to send a gift to a loved one, delivery of your online orders is now free from £25. We’ve extended our returns policy to 60 days. We’re working closely with Royal Mail and DPD to ensure contact-free deliveries are carried out so that we can provide a safe and reliable service to you. Some of the measures currently being taken include:

  • Hand-held devices for signature on delivery will not be handed over on delivery – instead, the name of the person accepting the item will be logged.

  • For parcels delivered by Royal Mail that won’t fit through letterboxes, the item will be placed at the door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery person will then step aside to a safe distance whilst the item is retrieved. This will ensure that items are delivered securely. If you are unable to come to the door then will be issued with a card, advising you of other ways you can arrange to get your item.

  • For larger orders, DPD also offers in-flight options once your order is on its way to you, so that you can re-direct your parcel to be left in a safe place. You can select this option when you receive the text message or email telling you that your parcel is on its way.

Ensuring the safety of our staff

The health, safety and well-being of all our colleagues is crucial to us and will always be a top priority. We’ve put in place new measures to ensure the safety of our colleagues packing orders in our distribution centres and also with our distribution companies.

We are reviewing the latest government and medical advice and are updating our procedures on a daily basis. We regularly communicate to everyone working in the warehouses, so they understand the new rules for safe working. These include ensuring that employees are working at least two metres apart from each other, reduced team sizes, breaks between shifts and regular sanitisation of work areas. We’re incredibly grateful to our committed staff who are continuing to support our customers and communities through their work.

Helping Our Communities

The Body Shop is delighted to donate 25,000 units of soap and 25,000 units of Hemp Hand protector to the tirelessly brilliant NHS nurses, doctors, support staff and volunteers at the temporary hospital at London’s ExCel centre. We will be donating a further 25,000 pieces to those hospitals being set up in Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

We really hope these donations will help provide these wonderful people even the smallest amount of time to care for themselves when they are spending so much time caring for others. And to know that we really do appreciate the amazing work they are doing for us all. #TimeToCare
