ANITA RODDICKS STORY

The founder of the "BODY SHOP"

When Anita Roddick opened her first Body Shop, she didn't expect to get rich. She just hoped to survive. Her plan was disarmingly simple-she would create a line of cosmetics from natural ingredients and rather than rely on vanity to sell her products, she would appeal to her customers' concern for the environment. Through a combination of low-key marketing, consumer education and social activism, The Body Shop Ltd. rewrote the rulebook for the $16 billion global cosmetics business and made Roddick one of the richest women in England.

Born in 1942, Anita Perella was the third of four children in one of the few Italian immigrant families in Littlehampton, England. Her mother steered her into the teaching profession, but Roddick's craving for adventure was too strong to keep her in the classroom. After a year in Paris in the library of the International Herald Tribune and another year in Geneva working for the United Nations, she hit what she calls "the hippie trail," traveling through Europe, the South Pacific and Africa. During her journeys, she became acquainted with the rituals and customs of many Third World cultures, including their forms of health and body care.


Anita's body shop is now one of the biggest inspirations to entrepreneurs worldwide.
