Indie Trail and Tours

Indie Brand Trail and Tours: Talk to the Indies

  • Indie brands are gaining huge momentum in the industry as the segment continues to outpace total market growth (Kline).

    However, sourcing quality ingredients from reputable suppliers in the quantities, and at a price, an indie can afford still remains one of the biggest challenges facing indie brands today.

    The Indie Trail and Tour, brand new to in-cosmetics North America 2019, makes it easier for upcoming beauty entrepreneurs to source innovative and quality ingredients from top suppliers.

    Developed in collaboration with Karen Young, Founder and CEO of The Young Group, the tour and trail will provide those all-important connections to suppliers who can cater to a smaller scale production.
