Sales boost for Botanicals Natural Organic Skincare
Botanicals Natural Organic Skincare saw a huge boost in sales during 2016. This success follows a previous all-time high last year, when 2015 sales were more than 50% higher than 2014.
During 2016, retail sales grew by 38% on the previous year, with December being the busiest month. However, the greatest increase in sales was experienced in the professional sector, with sales to therapists and salons being up nearly 80% on 2015.
Botanicals opened many new salon accounts during 2016, including FaceGym at Selfridges, Radiance Wellbeing in Bath and Ramada Resort in Grantham.
Wendy Stirling, founder of Botanicals comments: “In a recent article, the Soil Association stated that certified health and beauty sales were up 21.6% in 2015 and year-to-date sales during 2016 were already 14% up on 2015. Also that this trend illustrated how consumers are not just concerned about what they put in their body, but also conscious of what they are putting on their body."
Wendy continues: “Whilst the growth in awareness for the many benefits of using natural and organic skincare products has certainly contributed to increased sales for Botanicals in the last couple of years, I do believe that Botanicals name has now become synonymous with quality and effectiveness.
“With two successive, record breaking years - which far exceeds the Soil Association's figures - there can be no doubt that Botanicals deserves recognition as one of the leading UK manufacturers and suppliers of high quality, authentic, certified natural organic skin care.”
