      Very helpful



      Did a great thing, then undermined that for cash!

      Anita started by doing great thing, starting up a chain of animal friendly beauty products but then went and sold out to Loreal who test on animals like bunnies are going out of 'fashion'. Its sad she died n all but she should have been removed from her pedastall years ago and recognised as just another run of the mill business woman. She cashed in on a gap in the market and then sold out her beliefs to the highest bidder!

      Business wise, well done her.

      Morally, not a nice move!!

      I think body shop was great and I always shopped there in confidence knowing I would be buying cruelty free products. Now that my money would be going to one of the most sickening corporations out there I don't set foot in a body shop outlet!!

      In all, I think Anita was probably a fine person and just a run of the mill business woman. Im sorry she passed away and my sympathy went to her family at that time. But I feel it is unfair that she was described as some kinda missionary in the movement for animal rights in beauty when the woman sold out when the price was right!!!
