Welcome to the first issue of Beauty Matters, a special edition e-bulletin which is dedicated to issues that affect businesses in the beauty and cosmetics sectors.
The events of the past year have created unforetold challenges for an industry which in 2018 contributed £28.4 billion to UK GDP and represented one in every 60 jobs in the UK. However, the sector is showing impressive resilience, creativity and innovation. In this special issue, we look at the convergence of beauty and technology, the impact of COVID-19 for employers in the beauty sector, navigating the rules on working with #influencers, ways to protect and enforce against beauty dupes and considerations for beauty brands working with CBD.
We welcome your feedback, so if there is anything in this newsletter that you wish to discuss further, or any ideas for future issues, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the team.
