The Body Shop: Ethical Beauty Brand Announces Bankruptcy and Closure of Multiple Stores in Canada and the US

The prominent beauty brand, The Body Shop, known for its ethical ethos around sustainable and cruelty-free products, has declared bankruptcy. The skincare and cosmetics chain has unveiled its plans to cease operations at multiple locations in Canada due to this recent financial strain.

This news comes in the absence of specifics regarding the timings for the closure of the remaining Body Shop stores and the commencement of liquidation proceedings for its US outlets. Additionally, the firm earlier publicized that its US subsidiary had become non-operational starting from March 1.

The Body Shop, a subsidiary of Buth-Na-Bodhaige Inc., primarily a soap and lotion merchant, has filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in New York City, chronicling another setback for the international parent company. Notably, the brand has always stood as an emblem of corporate social responsibility ever since it was founded by prominent human rights activist, Anita Roddick.

As an industry pioneer, The Body Shop was among the first cosmetic companies to take a stand against animal testing on their products. Now the U.K-based firm has decided to shut down half of its locations in Canada. This sudden turn of events presents a challenging trajectory for the future of this trailblazing beauty brand.
