Sign of the times: The market in South Africa

Despite economic downturns and market volatility in South Africa, the beauty and slimming industry has grown steadily and significantly over the last decade. Media and market trends show that people are increasingly investing in beauty, health and slimming products as longevity and appearance progressively become more important in our pursuit towards quality of life.

Looking good and feeling healthy are a timeless ‘holy grail’, and starting or building a business that speaks to this fundamental need in people to look and feel their best will certainly endure the test of time, surviving even the toughest economic climates. As long as people have the need to look and feel good, there will be opportunities for savvy beauty entrepreneurs to rake in a profit.

Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Magazine Editor and head of the South African Spa Association, Dr Nadine de Freitas, was recently quoted saying “Growth in the spa industry, despite the recession, is between 15-20%”. What all this prosperity means is that the prospects for people who own or aspire to own health and beauty businesses are very positive.

The slimming industry, specifically, has seen enormous growth, due to increasing awareness of the multiple health risks associated with being overweight. Weight loss and weight management have become a central focus for millions of people around the world who spend alarming amounts of money in their quest to slim down.

All this may prove that right now may just be the perfect time for you to start the slimming salon or health spa you’ve always dreamed of. Starting your own slimming business can provide you with an excellent opportunity to access the lucrative streams of income offered by the weight loss industry. For many, this may hold the added benefit of achieving financial independence and becoming self-employed – a growing trend amongst South Africans seeking economic survival and future financial security. It also provides meaning and fulfilment, knowing you will be providing a valuable service to your community.

Perhaps you’re considering starting your own slimming business, or you’re thinking about growing your current business and market share by expanding your product offering to include slimming. Why not join a trusted brand name and start the journey with professional support and lowered risks?
