Australian Bodycare to expand UK business

Waxing, body and skincare brand Australian Bodycare has announced expansion plans for both its UK and Ireland business and internationally.

The announcement follows the arrival of investors Jens Heimburger as chairman and Jan Kruse Hanson as managing director to Dutch parent company Australian Bodycare Continental.

The brand’s tea tree oil-based products, which only use melaleuca alternifolia grade, are stocked in over 6,000 salons and spas in the UK. The company plans to build on these foundations with development plans to expand the UK and Irish business and take the brand further into European markets and then global.

Ken Lamacraft, managing director of Australian Bodycare UK, commented: “Australian Bodycare and its heritage is to guarantee high quality products to the salon industry. It is a joy to hear the comments of our salon owners and therapists at trade shows and other events, as they speak of the trust they put in the range. This positive feedback inspires our team to push standards even higher.”
