This category is only open to products that have been available for a year or more. You are encouraged to keep your entry concise and clear; bullet points and the use of formatting options such as bold, underlines and italics are encouraged to ensure your entry is easy to digest for judges. A strict character limit of 1,700 (including spaces) is enforced for each question and you must not exceed this; however, your entry does not have to meet it.

5 Squirrels have a revolutionary product range allowing HCP's in the aesthetic speciality to launch their own brand skincare with high quality, high strength, clinically proven ingredients whilst also protecting and growing their businesses from online re-sellers therefore preserving the skill base and patient services for the future.
The company was a start up 5 years ago born from the needs of the HCP's working in medical aesthetics who started to see their business's and client numbers decline due to the competitive nature of e-commerce.
A task force of talented and experienced professionals have developed the skin care range, testing on clients and are now proud to recommend it as their own range addressing the issues previously mentioned and seeing their patient numbers increase and business's grow.
The range is innovative both in terms of the ingredients and the evidence base but also in terms of the customer and business support offered to support clinics to embark on this exciting and rewarding journey.
5 Squirrels deserve to win this award as they are true partners of the UK aesthetic speciality developing products and services hand in hand with the marketplace ensuring the industry survives and flourishes.

As a brand, product and treatment offering is extremely important. There are plenty amazing products and treatments out there and the industry is changing every day, with new products being launched every week and other treatments being forgotten about. We believe the most important part of our role is not the products we sell but the service that we give, whether it's being there to support a nervous practitioner on their first peel treatment or just something as simple as picking up the phone after 6pm, or maybe its visiting a customer on an evening/weekend because that's the only time they can do. We don't discriminate and we are accessible to everyone. We believe that is what will help us continuously grow year on year. Exceptional service is the constant which makes a brand successful, and that is exactly what we value our success on.

CRYSTAL POWER from The Experts in Vitamin A.
Fast anti-ageing results, unmatched in age-defying power (it can deliver results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A), retinaldehyde (retinal) is hailed as one of the most advanced forms of vitamin A available today. Helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines whilst improving texture and tone; retinaldehyde unlocks the secret to youthful-looking skin in just a matter of months.
UP TO 11X FASTER THAN RETINOL
Retinaldehyde is proven to deliver incredible anti-ageing results up to 11 times faster than classic forms of retinol. We have exclusively encapsulated the retinal in a crystal structure, for a slow but steady drip-feed into the skin overnight, making it super gentle for even the most sensitive of skins who previously could not tolerate using a vitamin A.
This crystal encapsulation ensures maximum vitamin A stability and minimises irritation as your skin gets used to high levels of vitamin A. Now available in 4 strengths;
● Crystal Retinal 1 - 0.01% Encapsulated Retinaldehyde
● Crystal retinal 3 - 0.03% Encapsulated Retinaldehyde
● Crystal Retinal 6 - 0.06% Encapsulated Retinaldehyde.
● Crystal retinal 10 - 0.10% Encapsulated Retinaldehyde.
Retinaldehyde joins forces with hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin E in our Crystal Retinal range for a wealth of anti-ageing benefits. The skin is left hydrated at every level; delivering a visibly supple, even-toned and most importantly - a more youthful-looking complexion. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, retinaldehyde has the secondary benefit of boasting powerful antibacterial properties. This means it can target blemish-causing bacteria for visibly clearer skin.
