Tancream stars on Dragons’ Den

Tancream, a unique skin-care and sun-protection lotion company, has received a £75,000 investment after appearing on BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den.

Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft, co-founders of Tancream, offered a 10% stake in the business and the patent-pending product, in return for the investment.

The pair received an offer of the full £75,000, in exchange for a 25% share in the business from Peter Jones. However, the entrepreneurs opted to team up with new Dragon Sara Davies, and Touker Suleyman, who proposed to split the £75,000 investment between them, in exchange for an equal 12.5% stake.

Tancream™ was founded in 2017 by Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft.

After being diagnosed with skin cancer, company co-founder Gillian noticed a gap in the market for a product which offered the UV protection of sun cream combined with self-tanning, anti-ageing and moisturising properties.

Gillian, together with co-founder and Director Katy, worked with industry experts and the UK’s top suncare specialists for more than three years to develop a solution and Tancream was born.

Tancream carefully blends sunscreen and sunless tanning agents to create an innovative luxury face and body lotion offering SPF 50, a superior self-tan, a tint of natural bronzer and moisturising properties – all in one bottle.

Tancream were absolutely delighted to be awarded Business of the Year by the English Women’s Award 2018. This inaugural awards ceremony for the North of England was held in Manchester on Monday 19th March. The same date the two founders Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft were travelling back from an exhibition in Italy. They sent Olivia Scott from Storyteller Marketing who does such a fantastic job on their social media posts to the awards evening not expecting to come away with an award! Katy told Olivia, don’t worry you won’t need to make a speech! How wrong she was. What a great accolade and gives Tancream a fabulous reward for all the hard work for the past few years! Hooray!
