Tropic Skincare

Founder and chief executive Susie Ma was 15 when she launched Tropic at Greenwich Market after borrowing £200 from her mother and selling a body scrub in jam jars. Today, Tropic manufacturers over 98% of the products it sells – including vegan skincare, body care, sun care and makeup – at its Surrey-based headquarters. Last year, Tropic funded a year’s worth of education for 12,000 children in rural Asia, with every order funding education through its United World Schools Partnership. This year, Tropic also funded and opened a forest in Hampshire, free for the British public to visit.
