The Body Shop Ethical Update

The Body Shop Vegan Skin Care

I am happy to announce that I am finally on The Body Shop’s blogger list. It took 7 years for The Body Shop to recognise me as a blogger. However, I am glad that now I am on their list. One of the reasons being that now their parent company is Brazilian beauty brand Natura. Moving back to the purpose of this blog post, last month I was invited to my first blogger event at The Body Shop.

It has been a long time since I have met with some of the bloggers, so it was an unofficial blogger meetup. I got to meet new bloggers too. For example,’s guest blogger, Janiiicee too.

I took the opportunity at the event to ask them about vegan products. The reason is that I have recently heard about The Body Shop going all vegan. However, when I look up some products, some products happen to be not vegan. So I got my answer. They are surely completely vegetarian in the process of becoming vegan. Most of their products are vegan, with the exception of shampoos, shower gels, and some products here and there.

Knowing that I am vegan, they made sure that my goodie bag consisted of vegan products.

Another ethical step The Body Shop is heading to is eco-friendly packaging. We have heard of Lush working on package free products. Some say that this Lush idea is cool, some say it’s impractical. I have no opinion yet about it as I haven’t tried these Lush products. However, The Body Shop seems to be the next cruelty-free brand to make sure that their products don’t harm the environment.

Until this happens, The Body Shop is still accepting empty packaging of their products from their customers.

I would like to The Body Shop for inviting me to this event and to update me on their ethical progress. I hope there will be more events in the future and I can’t wait to try your upcoming ethical products.
