Fast Track 100

Susie Ma, 31, sold her first product at Greenwich market in southeast London when she was just 15. Eight years later, in 2011, she convinced Lord Sugar to take a 50% stake in her natural skincare business. She has since signed up more than 14,000 brand ambassadors who sell the products through “Pamper Experiences” across the UK. Crafting the range of skincare, make-up and haircare products is a team at its HQ in Surrey. Sales hit £34.9m this year, helped by growing demand for ethically and sustainably sourced goods — everything Tropic Skincare sells is vegan and cruelty-free.
