On Friday 17th June, Global Beauty Products Ltd celebrated winning the Queens International Export Award for 2022. One of only 141 companies across the UK to win this award in 2022, the Garston based company celebrated in style with none other than Liverpool F.C. legend Sir Kenny Dalglish.
Global Beauty Products, based in the Matchworks in Garston, picked the Bentley to host the award winners party due to its fabulous view over the three Graces and through to the River Mersey. The celebration was to mark the amazing award win as the company has gone from strength to strength.
Established in 2015 in Liverpool by founder Warren Gavin., Global Beauty Products, trading as Beautiful Brows and Lashes, is a specialist cosmetics company which develops, manufactures and sells a range of products to professionals in the beauty sector.
Its products include a range of eyebrow and lash products for professionals to carry out beauty treatments, including microblading, brow lamination, and lash lift. It now sells its products to 200+ brands around the world. The beauty industry has been using PPE and hand sanitiser long before COVID-19 so it has been manufacturing a range of products to meet this need which expanded in response to the pandemic.
Overseas sales have grown by 159% and the company currently exports to 27 countries. During the past three years, it has identified and established 15 new overseas markets which include the USA, Mexico, Sweden, Slovakia, and Greece. The company wins the Queen’s Award for International Trade for Outstanding Short Term Growth.
On the back of this success has been a drive to export. It is for this export success that GBP has been granted the Queens International Export Award for 2022..
The event also gave the team at Global Beauty Products a chance to present their guests of honour with a cheque from the company.
MD and founder Warren Given said:
“ Since setting up GBP just over 7 years ago it has been a roller coaster ride, like many new startups are. The past few years have seen us grow and grow and to be now doing trade business in over 27 countries is amazing. We also wanted to hand over a donation to the amazing Marina Dalglish Appeal. We were joined at our drinks reception by Sir Kenny Dalglish, his wife Marina and daughter Lauren who were there to accept a £20,000 charitable donation to the Marina Dalglish Foundation. It was great for all the team to celebrate their win with the Dalglish family who were fantastic.”
The Marina Dalglish Appeal was set up in 2005 by the Dalglish family after Marina was successfully treated for breast cancer in 2003.Since its set up the appeal has raised over £13m to improve the lives of people with cancer in the region.
