Bubble & Balm produces a range of popular FairTrade beauty and cosmetic products
Founder: Sue Acton
Launched in June 2009, Bubble & Balm produces a range of FairTrade beauty and cosmetic products. Founder Sue took the plunge after being made redundant and finally fulfilled her lifelong ambition to start her own business. 2010 saw the range of products launch in supermarket chain Waitrose, much to the delight of Sue. Another highlight of the company’s first year was winning a £10,000 grant from BT Business which enabled the launch of Bubble & Balm’s liquid soap range.
