Why is she famous??
Anita Roddick was the founder of The Body Shop, one of the world's most successful retailers of cosmetics and related products. She is also known as one of the most outspoken social activists in the business world.
The key to the Body Shop's success was the identification of its products (Fuzzy Peach Shower Gel, Brazil Nut Conditioner, Raspberry Shampoo) with the social and political preoccupations of the young women who constituted its main customer base: animal welfare, the protection of the Brazilian rain forest, Third World poverty and, of course, the age-old pursuit of youth, beauty and sexual allure.
