Before Anita Roddick ever became famous, there was a Body Shop in Berkeley. As an impoverished undergrad I used to troop to the Body Shop downtown and buy a bottle of body wash in "Rain." It turns out that the store (expanded to a local chain) still exists and is now called Body Time. For my 40th birthday, I ordered a small vial of coconut perfume oil, in tribute to the old Filipina ladies who'd comb coconut oil through their hair.
