Become a beauty and skincare activist with The Body Shop

The Body Shop, has unveiled its new store in Abu Dhabi, located in Al Fursan Mall, Khalfia City. Called ‘Activist Maker’s Workshop’ the store is part of huge expansion plan across the region that will encourage residents of these areas to explore the products and discover how, together, we can fight for a fairer and more beautiful world.

The Body Shop’s new Activist Maker’s Workshop stores are deiscribed as a place for play and discovery, where you can immerse themselves in the brand and get inspired by their beauty products and ethical purpose.

And, here's what what makes this new concept store a truly unique experience:


The Body Shop store has been outfitted with sustainable fixtures made from reclaimed wood and recycled plastics to help minimise its environmental footprint. Examples include a metal facade constructed in aluminium, which requires less energy production than other materials and is infinitely recyclable. The store also has worktop surfaces that are manufactured from 100% recycled material destined for landfill.


The refill station is a key part of The Body Shop’s on-going retail strategy globally. You'll be able to purchase refills for an assortment of body and hair care products in re-usable aluminium bottles. The Body Shop’s ambition is for over 500 stores across the world to offer refill within the next 2 years. Scan the barcode to take a pledge today and join the REFILL REVOLUTION.

Pick up The Body Shop’s most-loved products from the bestsellers’ bays, featuring an edit of head-to-toe heroes loved by customers around the world. Led by single ingredients - many of them sourced through the brand’s Community Fair Trade programme - ranges like Tea Tree, Ginger and Hemp have become favourites for their hardworking formulas. The Body Shop’s all female, friendly staff are on-hand to offer demonstrations, tailored tips and new ways to experience these iconic products.


The new store also features an activism hub where people can discover the brand’s activist roots as well as campaign for social change around issues ranging from gender equality to fighting cosmetic animal testing. You can also find out how they can get involved and take a stand with The Body Shop’s global and local collective of fearless activists.


Thanks to the gifting station, there are endless ways to make the perfect present as special as your special someone. Get creative and personalise gifts with stamps, ribbons and recyclable paper to treat your loved ones to something truly unique. You can even personalise your refillable bottle with stickers from the gifting station!


As always, The Body Shop’s friendly, knowledgeable Activist Maker’s Workshop store teams will be on-hand to help with your experience and play with products like never before. This all female team will be happy to offer expert advice, personalised makeovers and body care, skincare and haircare experiential demonstrations. And, if you want to, they’ll also be excited to share and engage in activity around The Body Shop’s recent campaigns, the environment, social justice and how we can create and fight for a fairer and more beautiful world.
