Skinny Tan is coming to America
Steve’s breakdown: It’s a cream that tans and makes you look thinner. People first got introduced to the product on BBC TV’s ‘Dragons’ Den’ (think Shark Tank). The new owner of the company is InnovaDerma and they plan an American launch. Now go get’em!
LONDON, UK: Skinny Tan has announced that global beauty innovations company InnovaDerma has successfully completed their acquisition of Skinny Tan as part of its strategy to expand its top line revenue and retail distribution footprint globally.
Having sold in excess of £2million, Skinny Tan has seen phenomenal growth since Louise Ferguson and Kate Cotton formed it in 2012.
InnovaDerma will be injecting up to £2m over the next 12 months to consolidate its presence in existing markets, expand operations to the Americas and enhance the product offering to include new salon range.
A very successful appearance on BBC TV’s ‘Dragons’ Den’ resulted in Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney wining a fight amongst the ‘Dragons’ to becomes the successful investors of Skinny Tan. Kelly and Piers who were instrumental to the company’s UK launch, will continue to support the brand during the transition.
Responsible for the end-to-end worldwide supply chain as well as managing global key accounts, stakeholder 42point5’s Managing Director Nick Leviton is certain that the acquisition will assist in enhancing the brand on the high street.
