The Body Shop
The Body Shop has been a big player in the UK beauty scene since starting out in Brighton in 1976 with the aim of making products from ethically-sourced, cruelty-free and natural ingredients.
Are all of The Body Shop products vegan?
Whilst everything for sale in The Body Shop might be 100% vegetarian, not all of their products are fully plant-based. In fact, around half of their skincare, haircare and general beauty products aren’t suitable for vegans due to the use of honey, beeswax and lanolin.
