Sweden Eco is a range of high quality, Swedish made skin care products that are produced form natural and organic ingredients, with some vegan options available also. The company has a strong belief in transparency about the source of its ingredients and does not conduct any testing on animals, or use individual ingredients tested on animals. All details of the products are on the main website.
We came to build this business as my Swedish partner could not purchase the products in the UK, so we approached Rosenserien to look into selling their products. We started selling in the UK and have had positive feedback along the way, but careers in other places meant that we were not able to give Sweden Eco the focus it required, and have currently ceased trading on our website (which is why some data here appears to show no sales or hours on operation).
Included in the sale are: Sweden Eco Limited Sweden Eco Shopify website, including 2 domains Instagram account Facebook account Twitter account Natwest Business Banking account - currently £300.00 in the account
We purchase wholesale from Rosenserien in Sweden and sell direct to online customers in the UK. Profit margins vary from 10% to 40%, depending on how you set pricing.
Business is VAT registered so that it may purchase from Sweden with a 0% VAT rate.
Advertising has included; Sending free samples to online influencers in exchange for mentions Google adwords campaigns Marketstall at London Scandinavian Market
Although you could start purchasing from Rosenserien immediately, as all the product information is available, it would be advisable to visit Rosenserien, just south of Stockholm, to have a training day on their products and buy some samples; this costs around £300-400 in total.
This business would suit someone who has experience in the natural health and beauty industry, who is looking to bring an established brand (who sold 400,000 units last year in their established markets) to the UK. An understanding of the Swedish language would be useful, but not completely neccessary.
Our original agreement was to sell Rosenserien products in the UK, but as this is a fully comprehensive site, there is scope to sell in other English speaking countries. This would need to be agreed with Rosenserien in Sweden.
