Why it’s good to make things…

Sarah Brown is the founder of Pai Skincare. Entrepreneur, mum and sensitive-skinned soul – trying to find time to practice more of what she preaches…

The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind here at Pai HQ!

Last week I was invited to speak at the EEF’s National Manufacturing Conference alongside political heavy-weights, Ken Clarke and Vince Cable.

Representing small businesses, I was there to communicate the challenges we face as a British manufacturer in the beauty industry.

It made me realize just how proud I am to be a British manufacturer!

The beauty industry’s best kept secret is that most skincare brands do not create their own products.

The vast majority outsource both product development and manufacture to the same few external formulators and factories.

Making things is at the heart of Pai and why I started the company.

I wanted to conceive and create products that make a real and lasting difference to sensitive skin.

I didn’t want to farm that very important job out to other people!

We control every aspect of production – from ingredient selection and handling through to filling and packaging.

It’s a huge commitment and investment in both people and technology, but I believe it’s what makes our products so special and performance driven.
