Haris Chaudhry, Executive Chairman of InnovaDerma said:

“We are exceptionally pleased to have secured ASOS and this, together with delivering record revenues for three of the four past months is a testament to the growing popularity of Skinny Tan.  We are significantly-expanding our direct client base in multiple markets and the exceptional success in Superdrug  is making Skinny Tan one of the UK’s most popular self-tanner.  The business is making excellent progress and the Board is confident of the future.

The energy and enthusiasm  of our team is the driving force behind the business and I want to sincerely thank Clifford for his significant contribution to the development of the Group and in steering the Company through its IPO last year.  We are grateful for all he has done and wish him well for the future as he embarks on his exciting new ventures.”

The Group is in a very strong position with a clear and well-defined growth strategy with a well-diversified product portfolio and I look forward to watching it grow and prosper in the years ahead.”
