The company, which launched in Bury, Greater Manchester in January of this year, predicts sales turnover will reach close to £2 million by the end of 2018. Employing 20 people, Skin Academy has won major national retail contracts with Bodycare, Beauty Outlet, B&M Retail, BOYES, and Semi Chem, with products also available to buy online from and PrettyLittleThing.
