Fast Track 100

Tropic Skincare created 15,000 “Pamper Packs” of skincare products, with profits supporting production of 50,000 units of hand sanitiser for NHS key workers. Founder Susie Ma, 32, sold Lord (Alan) Sugar a 50% stake in her natural skincare, make-up and haircare business in 2011, and it now has more than 30,000 brand ambassadors that sell its vegan and cruelty-free products, all made at its headquarters in Croydon. Since the first lockdown its ambassadors have moved online, and the company offsets double the carbon produced by its operations. Sales hit £51.3m in the year to June.
