The British beauty business employs over a million people and it is thought to be worth some £17 billion*, its indisputable contribution to the UK economy growing steadily year-on-year.
The British Beauty Council (BBC) has been founded as a forum to represent the voices, opinions and needs of the British beauty industry at government level. Our aim is to ensure that the industry’s reputation, innovation and education are recognised and valued at all levels: in government, through the wider economy and by consumers.
So BBC represents all areas of the beauty industry from hairdressing to cosmetics, cosmetic surgery, therapy and spa, in education and training, and from formulation, to manufacture, supply, logistics packaging, design, retail and media.
We are an inclusive organisation that works within an ethical framework to represent the interests of its members regardless of age, ability, gender, race, religion or culture.
We work to engage politicians and business leaders about the value of the sector to the national economy and its key role in the UK’s creative and cultural character.
BBC’s mandate is to push the key business and political agenda of the industry at Westminster with an expert-backed group representing all sectors from manufacture to media, supply to logistics, and retail to professional services.
BBC promotes the interests of people and companies engaged in all sectors of the beauty business. It advises on policy to deal with issues impacting on the industry, and engages in political lobbying to ensure new legislation benefits its members. BBC also undertakes research to track market trends and forecast the business opportunities and challenges facing the industry in coming years.
