We are celebrating 10 years in business!
We are celebrating 10 years in business and we have ambitious plans for its next decade. Skins first hit the market with Skins Condoms, and our intention was to ‘change the perception of contraception’ by producing a condom that people would be proud to buy, unashamed to carry, and ultimately enjoy wearing. A recent survey we took with over 400 students at Lincoln University, suggests we have gone a long way to succeeding with this aim as 82% of students agreed that the brand had strong appeal for them.
Milestones along our decade-long journey include partnerships with the NHS, American Pie Reunion, and cast members of Geordie Shore, endorsements from Dr Christian Jessen and Dr Pixie McKenna and sponsorship support for Eyes Open World Aids Day, National Federation of Young Farmers, and the University of Lincoln.
Our range now covers three key product areas: protection, performance, and pleasure. So in addition to Skins Condoms we offer Vibe Rings, Performance Rings, male sexual health food supplement pills Poweract, and Powerect – a 100% natural cream to enhance male pleasure. Going forward we see male performance as a key growth area and much of our product development is currently focused in this field.
We are passionate about sexual health. We hope to build on our success to date and enter new markets globally. As a brand we believe that a happy and healthy sex life should be available for all. Indeed, research is increasingly extolling the benefits of regular sex as a powerful force for many far-reaching health benefits. By aiming to introduce unique solutions at affordable prices we hope that Skins can continue to grow over the next ten years and play a small part in making people’s lives happier and healthier.
Skins carries a simple naming policy. We wanted our brand to be as transparent as the product itself. Some people still find it embarrassing to buy condoms and therefore to make the process quick and easy, the options are clear, it is what it says on the tin, so there is no confusion or awkward conversations when purchasing our Skins. We believe this honest but funky approach to our packaging helps attract our customers – then once they’ve tried them they are hooked!
