Profit Track 100

Tropic Skincare produced 50,000 conditioning hand sanitisers and 20,000 “calm balms” for key workers during the pandemic. It offsets double the carbon produced by its operations, and plans to expand its support for education by funding a new school in Nepal, to open in September. Founder Susie Ma, 32, sold Lord Sugar a 50 per cent stake in her natural skincare, make-up and haircare business in 2011. It now has more than 20,000 brand ambassadors selling its vegan and cruelty-free products, all made at its headquarters in Croydon. Its ambassadors have moved online during the pandemic. Profits reached £10.7 million in the year to June 2020.
