But as much as we love our creams, cosmetics and tools, there is something else we should cry out about: the incredible innovation, science and world-class talent that we have in our UK labs.

“I’m here to recognize and support what is a really important and fast growing industry – and something that as a country we should be proud to do really well,” he adds. “Our products are exported to all over the world, we have a very good reputation in the field, and I am very confident, optimistic and excited about the future success of the industry. This should give you an idea of how much importance we place on the industry. It’s safe to say that the beauty industry is now firmly on the map.
