Antony Wagman, owner of national beauty brand, Skin Academy, has bolstered his senior team with the appointment of two key figures to the board, a new group managing director and a new finance director.

Richard Jorden assumes the role of managing director and is tasked with spearheading the brand’s European business and marketing strategy.

I am honoured to join a brand that has already carved itself such a strong presence in the industry, both in the UK and in Europe, in such little time.

“I look forward to leading the enthusiastic and dedicated team that is already in place onto even greater achievements for the business.

“With high goals my aim is to maintain the significant growth and success that the brand has already seen in its infancy and continue to strengthen Skin Academy’s presence and position as a growing brand within a busy marketplace.”

Richard Jorden

Within a multi-facet role, a key priority is to further consolidate the European and UK supply chain for Skin Academy on the back of, what it says was, a phenomenal year of sales for the business as it enters its second year of trading.

The Greater Manchester-based brand, which launched in January 2018, has already seen retail sales in excess of £2m and the new managing director will take the post with immediate effect.

With more than 25 years within personal care Richard Jorden joins the leading skincare brand with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience learned from working with some of the biggest toiletry brands in the world including P&G, Gillette and Unilever and PZ Cussons.

“We are delighted to have Richard join the team and look forward to utilising the wealth of experience that he will bring with him. I have known Richard for many years and I am confident that, under his leadership, the brand will continue to go from strength to strength.”

“The second appointment sees Eddie Mackin expand his remit with parent company Quest Personal Care as a dedicated finance director for Skin Academy.”

“With more than 40 years’ experience, Eddie is perfectly placed to support and steer the businesses for exponential growth.”

“The Skin Academy journey so far has exceeded all expectations and with the new management team in place we are confident of what the future holds.”

“The brands are certainly making their mark and with consumer confidence in the ranges at a high and brand loyalty already evident, we look forward to bolstering our ranges and pursuing new avenues to meet the ever-increasing demand.”

“The move into the tattoo industry with the recent launch of INK’D just shows that the team is making great headway with NPD and penetrating new markets within the skin care industry and this is only going to increase in 2019.”

“It’s a very exciting time for the brand with lots of big things in the pipeline which both Eddie and Richard will play key roles in whilst also driving Skin Academy forward and ensuring that it stays ahead of its competitors.”

Top tips to keep your skin healthy this Winter

Skin Academy’s, Richard Jorden, admits that cold weather can have a drastic impact on skin and is now calling on people to make changes which will help avoid lasting damage which can lead to crippling pain.

Richard, MD at the UK-based firm, says that just a number of small changes can help minimise damage and keep the skin fresh throughout the cold weather.

“Revitalising your skin in the cold weather can be difficult but not making subtle changes to your beauty routine can cause havoc and lasting damage; from chapped lips and redness to extremely sensitive and itchy skin, the cold weather can affect your day to day life and if left untreated can impact your health and confidence.”

“Adapting your skincare routine for the changing season needn’t be a big job; it’s about being knowledgeable and putting the steps in place prior to the cold weather hitting.”

Top tips for keeping skin fresh in winter!

- Turn down the temperature – When it is cold outside we tend to make up for it by washing in hotter water which can actually strip moisture from your skin. Therefore we recommend limiting the amount of time you spend in the bath or shower to just five minutes which will avoid leaving the skin dry, itchy and even flaky.

- Moisturise and moisturise – As cold weather withdraws moisture from the skin it’s recommended to invest in a good moisturiser and use it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night and if you can do this as soon as you have washed that’s ideal. This will help increase the moisture level preventing it from drying out. Another tip is to moisturise your feet and pop some socks on over the top as part of your bedtime routine. You can even do the same with gloves to protect your hands. Protection – try and keep your skin from being exposed to the elements so investing in a good pair of gloves is recommended and wrap up warm in a scarf are two simple but effective tips that not everyone does.

- Drink - We tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing, cleansing and hydrating at the same time.

- Lip protection – A product that is vital throughout winter; lip balm. Our lips are exposed regularly to the harsh elements and can suffer dryness becoming cracked or chapped. Using a lip balm helps to lock in the moisture and heal cracks and splits. Skin Academy has a range of products that can repair and protect the skin, from sheet masks and gel eye patches to lip masks and foot socks ; all products are available from retailers around the country and online including Bodycare and Boohoo.com.

Business booming for new beauty brand

A new, Bury-based skincare brand has seen retail sales rocket to more than £1.8m in its first year of trading.

Skin Academy launched in January this year and in just 11 months has won major national retailer listings. The brand looks set to hit close to £2m in turnover by the end of 2018.

The company currently employs 20 people and specialises in a range of skincare products, including face masks, moisturisers and gel eye patches.

Products are sold in a range of retailers around the country, like Bodycare, Beauty Outlet, B&M Retail, BOYES, Semi Chem, and are available to purchase online at popular e-commerce sites Boohoo.com and PrettyLittleThing.

Chief executive Antony Wagman said: “It has been an incredible first year for the brand and it’s thanks to all the efforts of the team and the time we’ve spent in developing products which offer high-quality skincare at affordable prices.”

“Our face masks, in particular, have seen huge success since launch, using unique ingredients such as snake venom and charcoal.

“We have also developed a PURE range, consisting of products that are paraben, colour and fragrance-free and ideal for sensitive skin, which have seen strong retail sales in the last few months, including winning listings with national retailers.”

Antony-Wagman-Skin-Academy

With the INK’D tattoo aftercare range now available, Antony plans to further expand the Skin Academy range over the next year with a range of specialist products, including moisturisers for specialist skin types, natural and vegan-friendly products.

He said: “Skin Academy has seen huge success so far, but we want to build further on this.

“We have a reputation now for high quality skincare, at affordable prices and we want to grow the brand and develop new products targeted at different clients and different skin types.”

He added: “We are currently investing in a major research and development programme to expand the range further and we’ll have a number of new product launches and announcements to make over the coming months.”
