The Apprentice’s Susan Ma seeks to expand skin care business

Tropic Pure Plant Skin Care to feature in Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Live

Susan Ma, a runner up on series seven of The Apprentice, is now looking to further expand her online 100%-natural vegan and cruelty-free skin care range, Tropic Pure Plant Skin Care. A contestant on the BBC show, which this year saw aspiring entrepreneurs fight for a £250,000 investment from Amstrad multi-millionaire Lord Sugar, Ma launched Tropic Pure Plant Skin Care in 2007. The brand – said to be packed with active plant proteins, vitamins and antioxidants – has an estimated 20,000 users and has, since launching, enabled Ma to fund her way through university, pay off her mother’s mortgage and buy her first London property.

Ma – who memorably suggested a cosmetic chemist’s role involved checking products for arsenic in The Apprentice final – will personally showcase the range at Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Live, which takes place at London’s Excel Centre from 28-30 October, allowing consumers to trial the range and engage with its founder face to face.
