The Body Shop, founded in 1976 by Anita Roddick, has been facing financial challenges and is set to appoint administrators. The company was purchased by Aurelius just six weeks before Christmas, but weak trading over the holidays and insufficient working capital have led to the need for insolvency proceedings. It is expected that a significant number of stores will be closed as FRP Advisory is likely to be appointed as administrators soon.

Anita Roddick was an environmental campaigner and activist who owned The Body Shop for three decades until she sold it in 2006. Her strong ethical values were reflected in the company’s policies, such as refusing to stock products tested on animals and sourcing ingredients from natural products traded ethically. However, after her departure, the company changed ownership twice before being acquired by Aurelius in November.

The international businesses of The Body Shop have already been sold to an unknown family office. The future of the company remains uncertain as it faces financial difficulties, with many stores at risk of closure.
