Special Thanks to this year's beauty sponsor The Body Shop.
The Body Shop believes true beauty comes from the heart. For us, beauty is much more than a pretty face. It's about feeling good and doing good, too. The Body Shop trades fairly so communities benefit as well as you. They never test on animals, and all of their products are 100% vegetarian. The Body Shop campaigns with passion on issues close to their heart, because activism is in their blood.
