I remember my mother shopping here as a kid because she liked what this business stood for. unfortunately the Body Shop is now owned by L'Oreal which is owned by Nestle which is owned by Altria. Roddick did give away her entire fortune before she died though, and from what I've read she was a pretty inspiring person.
