Beauty with The Body Shop Tree Oil

Currently I am trying and liking The Body Shop Tree Oil. I am liking the toner, and also the face wash, I also liked the 2 for $18 special!

I do think of tree bark when I use it, but over all it is a really great product.

The Body Shop International plc is a global manufacturer and retailer of naturally inspired, ethically produced beauty and cosmetics products. Founded in the UK in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick, we now have over 2,100 stores in 55 countries, with a range of over 1,200 products, all animal cruelty free, and many with fairly traded natural ingredients.

The Body Shop takes positive action to bring about an end to the use of animals in cosmetics testing and to ensure no such testing is carried out by us or on our behalf. We operate a strict purchasing rule that ensures that we don't use any ingredient that has been animal tested for cosmetic purposes by our suppliers since 31 December 1990.

Many of our principles are about showing compassion and understanding for other people, but 'activate self-esteem' is all about you! Self-esteem is about self-awareness, self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance. It's about respecting yourself, looking after your body and soul, and being proud of who and what you are.

I like that the brand isn't just a beauty retailer with great products but they support so many causes. Founded in the UK in 1976 by Anita Roddick, she hustled to have her dream "green" store and became a very recognizable face as one of Britain’s most visible business executives. Unfortunately Anita passed away at age 64, after suffering a major brain hemorrhage, I feel blessed to use her products and proud see from her personal journey how popular the brand has gotten.

You can learn more of Roddick and her brand and the causes here in a NYTIMES article, she was so passionate about, the brand still stands as a leader in promoting causes like ending supporting the environment and ending animal testing.
