TWO companies in the world of health and beauty are combining forces.
Strength in teamwork is the message from Bev Wood Holistic and Beauty Therapists and The Purple Pot Company, both based in Hartlepool.
Bev has moved to a bigger unit in the Hartlepool Enterprise Centre in Brougham Terrace, Hartlepool.
She has also taken on Chloe Hainsworth as a beauty therapist and is offering everything from massage to reflexology, ear candling to foot spas, and waxing to contour wraps.
But Bev has also made another move by linking up with the Purple Pot Company, a mobile beauty business run by Carrie Dandy and Debbie Armstrong.
It uses products known for their revitalising and therapeutic properties, but only high quality, natural ingredients, pure and organic oils and plant extracts.
It also makes a range which is suitable for people with eczema or psoriasis.
Bev now stocks the natural skincare products supplied by the Purple Pot Company. In return, Bev’s business is highlighted to others by Carrie and Debbie. Bev said: “With Chloe coming in, it means we can do a lot more, and we are in bigger premises so we can provide the same as we supplied from the smaller unit plus more besides.”
She added: “Business is going really well and this link-up with the Purple Pot Company will hopefully mean that both of our businesses can grow.”
She said the bigger unit and the chance to give more time to clients meant she could offer a service which was “not rushed”.
Debbie said she and Carrie had been making natural beauty products for a while and had gone to the Hartlepool Enterprise Centre for some business advice.
That’s where they met Bev and eventually made the link-up.
“Bev took some of the products and we are getting great feedback from it. It is certainly a partnership which has worked well up to now.”
