In the October issue of @purebeautymagazine, Co-founder of @dr.pawpaw, Pauline Paterson discusses the benefits of being independent and shares her tips for budding beauty brand owners on how to start a business, as well as creating the perfect pitch for buyers.

Founded in 2013, Pauline was inspired to create the Dr. PawPaw with her husband after their daughter was diagnosed with eczema.

Nearly a decade later and Dr. PawPaw can be found in retailers across the globe, but, despite the brand's huge success, Paterson is in no rush to sell.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing (@baw_appg) has published a ‘Call To Action’ following its inquiry into the beauty sector’s challenging recovery from Covid-19.

Once worth £30bn and supporting 560,000 jobs (85% women), the pandemic has “decimated the industry,” the APPG’s inquiry found with many businesses in the beauty sector still facing crippling staff shortages post-Brexit and as a result of “inadequate funding” for apprentices, it said.

The Group, which is chaired by MPs Carolyn Harris and Judith Cummins, has made three key recommendations for government to ensure that the sector is not left behind in the UK’s post Covid-19 recovery.

It wants the government to:

 - Broaden apprenticeship incentives for employers, in particular for small and micro businesses.

- Include further accessible and broader holistic and complementary qualifications in the National Skills Fund.

- Recognise the crucial role of holistic and complementary therapies, and the crucial role these can play in taking pressure off the NHS.

Co-Chairs Harris and Cummins said: “The sector is still facing a myriad of issues from the Covid-19 pandemic that are continuing to be side-lined. We strongly urge the government to implement the recommendations in our Call to Action and to ensure that this vital sector, as the beating heart of several UK high streets, can once again become an economic powerhouse and continue to support all of our wellbeing.”
