UK’s iconic beauty brand, The Body Shop opened its third store in Kandy. The Body Shop store is located within easy access at the Kandy City Center building, marking the widespread appeal of a brand that has become Sri Lanka’s most trusted in skincare over a short span of time.
The Kandy opening was attended by The Body Shop Sri Lanka Director, Mr. Trevor Rajaratnam, who touched upon The Body Shop’s two-year journey in Sri Lanka in his opening remarks. Trevor highlighted the warmth with which Sri Lanka has embraced the iconic international beauty brand, noting its quick success in the market and the many community programs and initiatives done at The Body Shop stores.
The Body Shop opened its first store at Odel on Alexandra Place followed by its flagship store on Bagatale Road and now its third store at Kandy City Centre Mall. All The Body Shop stores in Sri Lanka provide the entire range of The Body Shop’s global and most iconic product lines, such as the Tea Tree range, Expert Facial Masks, Vitamin E range, Almond Milk and Honey range, Pomegranate range, Drops of Youth and Drops of Light range and The Body Shop’s cruelty free glamorous make up range. The Body Shop store has the newest arrivals on shelves in line with their global release dates and customers can choose from the wide range of internationally acclaimed and awarded products.
Customers can shop with a clean conscience: The Body Shop remains as committed as ever to its founding mission of ethical skincare, recently reaffirming its commitment by petitioning globally to cease the testing of cosmetic products on animals in laboratories through their ‘Forever Against Animal Testing’ campaign. In addition, all Body Shop products are 100% vegetarian and animal cruelty free and many of its products are vegan.
The Kandy Body Shop store is located at L3 33B, Kandy City Centre, Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe Mawatha.
