The tropical tanning salons of Australia’s far north are offering discounts on the most luxurious skin care products.
The popular tropical tannery, which employs around 300 workers in the remote areas of New South Wales, is currently looking to open a new facility in Melbourne, with a similar pricing structure to the more established salons in Australia.
The company is planning to open in 2020, with plans to hire at least 100 staff and offer the following discounts:Tropical tanneries are known for offering the most extravagant treatments, including treatments that include laser hair removal, facial and body waxing, and skin whitening.
The products can cost as much as $2,000 to $3,000, with the price of a facial waxing treatment running up to $4,000.
Tropicals are also known for making cosmetic products, such as face powders and face masks, and some have also become popular in the fashion industry, with brands such as Estee Lauder, CoverGirl, and MAC offering the same high-end treatments.
Trying to make a profit from this niche is no easy task, but Tropical Tanning has done it before.
In 2016, the company started selling its products at wholesale price to retail outlets in Australia, offering a discount of up to 70 percent.
The new Australian facilities will also be the first in Australia to offer a salon-style service to customers, rather than being delivered to the premises by truck.
Tropical Tannery CEO Matthew Mancuso told ABC News that the company is trying to make the most of the current technology to offer the most expensive treatments.
“We’re trying to leverage the technology to do the most elaborate treatments in the most comfortable environment,” he said.
“And it will be really nice to see the customer walk in and experience the experience themselves.”
For now, Tropical Tanners’ current facilities will be open to the public for the next several weeks, with Mancosos telling ABC News they plan to extend the service into November.
