Starting a skincare business – the top 3 FAQs

by | Feb 1, 2024 | Business, Podcast | 0 comments

Kicking off season two of Skincare Social, I’m diving into the hot questions every budding skincare entrepreneur has – around qualifications, timeframes and cost.
If starting a skincare or beauty brand is on your dreamboard for 2024, this episode is for you! (And even if you’ve already got one, you’ll still learn a thing or two!)
Specifically, we’ll look at:
  • Do you need any qualifications to start a skincare business?
  • How long will it take to launch your skincare brand?
  • How much will it cost to starting your brand?
  • The impacts of DIY vs outsourcing
  • Why compliance should be part of your budget!
And I’ll let you in on a few secrets that I think every brand owner should know before they launch – including how you can save time and avoid making costly mistakes.
I hope you love the season opener for Skincare Social. Stay tuned for more weekly insights coming your way!
