I started my career as a hairdresser then went on to specialise in the technical side of ingredients, technical support and education
Our biggest challenge running a business has probably been staff, finding good team who share your vision for the future.
The advise I would give anyone thinking of starting a business is to be sure you make time for yourself and your family. One of my ways to wind down is spa breaks & holidays.
Our great achievement to-date has been reaching our 10 year anniversary which occurred during Covid 19 lockdown
My mother is my greatest inspiration – I wish I had her energy and enthusiasm. She is always available and willing to help no matter what.
