The Perfume & Beauty Industry | Small Business
By

The perfume and cosmetics industry is a tough market for small businesses, where 75 percent of the industry’s revenue goes to the top 50 companies, according to Hoovers. But there is room for smaller competitors when you concentrate on your local market and provide exceptional customer service. Pay attention to consumer spending, fashion trends and local demographics to succeed against the giants.

Create Specialty Market

While the big cosmetic manufacturers can supply consumers with a multitude of products in a variety of locations, they often can’t serve the niche markets that prefer customized beauty products and one-of-a-kind scents. As a small business owner, seek out perfume designers and local facial cream producers and give them an avenue to create sales. Whether you own a retail boutique or a salon, provide shelf space for specialty items that can’t be purchased anywhere else. Unique products that provide consumers with the results they

The British wool industry is in crisis

“When we launched, very few fashion brands were using wool,” says Coleridge, who is now chairman of the campaign. “I always knew fast-fashion companies would reject wool as it stands for everything they don’t: it’s designed to last and is more expensive. But a decade ago, even the established high-street brands had stopped using wool. Everything was made from oil-based synthetics. So it is very cheering to see how much the industry has changed.”

Today stores like John Lewis and Marks & Spencer have partnered with the campaign and, thanks to a new emphasis on sustainability, use wool in many of their collections. A number of smaller independent brands focusing exclusively on wool-based products have also launched, and found that the pandemic has boosted their sales.

“There is a sense of people buying less but better and choosing very consciously to invest in pieces

Is the Beauty Industry Glossing Over Disability?
By

This op-ed is part of The Beauty of Accessibility, our series on inclusivity and representation for people with disabilities in the beauty industry and beyond. 

Growing up a biracial Asian girl with an X in my name who had Cerebral Palsy and walked with two adapted ski poles for support, I never expected to see myself represented. I identified strongly with other women, but I was too niche and, for the most part, I liked that. My family cultivated the best in me, so I grew up believing my disability was an asset. My mom, an art director for Estée Lauder and Avon, always said, “There’s always going to be someone smarter than you, prettier than you, taller than you, and that’s OK, just be you.” But not everyone receives that level of support, and the beauty industry has long touted a perfectionist, no-flaw standard free of wrinkles

How Pietra Is Helping Black Businesses Break Into the Fashion Industry
By

Like the inseams of a dress that no one ever really sees, the fashion industry has a history of hidden issues, including a lack of inclusive sizing, ableism, or absence of diversity on the runways and in boardrooms. In the wake of mass protests to honor Black Lives Matter, and with COVID-19 impacting Black entrepreneurs at a disproportionate rate, the fashion industry has had to flip their dress inside out and face these issues head-on.

Leaders and entrepreneurs like Aurora James, founder of Brother Vellies, have called for companies to pledge to source at least 15% of products from Black-owned brands. But before we can even support our favorite Black-owned fashion and beauty brands, we must address inequities Black entrepreneurs face when starting and scaling any business.

Globally, 80% of all venture capital firms don’t have a single Black investor, and just 1% of venture-funded startup
