The Body Shop is closing down all US operations after filing for bankruptcy

The Body Shop announced this month that it has closed all its stores in the United States as it filed for bankruptcy.

The Body Shop Canada Limited, the Canadian subsidiary of the U.K.-based cosmetics company, said it was working on ways to restructure and that its 105 store locations were currently open for business, according to the company announcement.

But 33 of those locations were starting liquidation sales as part of the bankruptcy proceedings. Online sales in Canada also stopped.

The Body Shop describes itself as “a once pioneering beauty brand known for its cruelty free heritage and ethical beauty products,” according to the announcement.

It was founded by human rights activist Anita Roddick and was one of the first cosmetic companies to prohibit animal testing of products.
