Browns is the first High Street retailer to stock a new beauty and skin care range which has been produced by Gainsborough salon, Rochell Rose.

Both Browns and Rochell Rose are located at Marshall’s Yard in Gainsborough and they have been supporting each other through what has been a difficult time for both the retail and beauty industry.

The Gainsborough store will be the only store to stock the new range initially which includes a vegan self-tanning mousse, vegan coffee body scrub, facial scrub, collagen eye gel and face cream, all of which are cruelty free and 100 per cent natural.

Amy Benson, of Rochell Rose, said: “I cannot express enough my thanks to the team at Browns for believing in my product range and allowing me a platform to sell these to the shoppers in Browns.

"It’s amazing to see such a big well-established business helping out a tiny start up like mine and it makes you realise that with hard work and by building relationships anything really is possible.”

Jodie Pacey, assistant store manager at Browns, said: “2020 has been a very challenging year for all businesses due to Covid-19, but particularly close contact services.

“We know Amy’s background and how hard she worked to get her salon up and running in Marshall’s Yard and we really wanted to do something to help our neighbour out.

"The range will add a new offer to our wonderful store and we very much look forward to offering these gorgeous products to our customers.”
