Since January 2020 I’ve been an independent Tropic Skincare Ambassador, what does that mean? Well basically, I sell (and use) Tropic products. I don’t work directly for Tropic but they provide me with a whole host of training information and support to help me understand their products to share with you all.
What is Tropic?
Tropic was created by Susie Ma, her first ever product was Body Smooth, a citrus scented body exfoliator made with lemon myrtle, bergamot and lime essential oils blended with organic sea salt to naturally buff away dead skin. Susie made up a big batch in her mums kitchen and aged just 15 filled up 50 jam jars which she flogged at Greenwich Market, selling them for £15 a go, totally selling out in her first day!
Susie went on to create several more products from her mums kitchen whilst studying, always inspired by her grandma who was a botanist and taught Susie how important it was to make products naturally, avoiding harsh added chemicals and toxins.
Susie went on to appear on BBCs The Apprentice back in 2011 and whilst she didn’t win Lord Sugar was so impressed he went on to invest as a 50/50 partner, to date she is the most successful candidate to have appeared on the show!
Tropic launched its selling platform in 2014, and now has over 16,000 people like me selling their products. It’s done in this format and not in the usual high street stores as Susie thinks it’s important to empower people to grow and build their own business, working for themselves. For me its the absolutely perfect accompaniment to my teaching.
I was a hairdresser straight after school and whilst that didn’t turn into something long term for me I never lost my passion for pampering people. I’ve invested in my skincare regime for several years now, swapping as much as possible to all natural and always working on clearing up breakouts, which along with dry skin is one the main reasons I find people want to enquire about Tropic with me.
Now with over 150 products in their rings, a number of them being award winning there’s really something for everyone and to treat every ailment in Tropic!
Soon after signing up as an ambassador I realised I wanted to take this further. I obtained a beauty therapy qualification in facial treatment & massage meaning I now have a better understanding of the skin which I’m continuing to study and develop and I can carry out luxury facials which I do using only Tropic products.
Tropic prides itself on being 100% naturally derived, vegan and cruelty free. They’re also carbon neutral certified and have a growing range of recyclable, refillable and plastic free products.
