Your Gorgeous Skin is a streamlined, vegan range of nine accessibly priced, multi-tasking products suitable for all skin types.

Clean beauty brand Dr.PawPaw is debuting its new skincare line, Your Gorgeous Skin, in global travel retail at Munich Airport through operator Flughafen München’s retail subsidiary Eurotrade.

Teaming up with NHP Hanse Distribution on the listing makes Eurotrade the first duty free retailer on the planet to launch the multitasking skincare range.

“We are excited to be collaborating with NHP Hanse Distribution and Dr.PawPaw on launching Your Gorgeous Skin in global travel retail,” said Regina Saur, Category Manager, P&C at Eurotrade.

“We are sure that the collection will meet the high standards that our travellers demand – from ethical ingredient sourcing to product efficacy – as we grow our beauty category even more.”

The space-saving, multitasking products offer passengers a welcome chance to streamline their travel beauty kit.

“Dr.PawPaw is a strong fit with travel retail, listed with major operators including Aer Rianta International, Lagardère Travel Retail, WHSmith Travel Retail, MSC Cruises and various airlines including Easyjet and Tui Group,” said Dennis Holst, Business Development Director of Hamburg-based NHP Hanse Distribution, which has a worldwide exclusive partnership with Dr.PawPaw for its travel retail rollout.

“Since January 2023, more than 80,000 Dr.PawPaw products have been sold in travel retail, a channel where the brand has significant future potential.

“We are grateful for the ongoing collaboration with Eurotrade, a leading retailer and Munich Airport, one of the biggest hubs in Europe. We value these partnerships greatly, together we provide travellers with a wider range of sustainable products.”

The collaboration taps into a growing consumer appetite for green brands in the channel. Research by m1nd-set shows that 73% of travellers believe that more people will buy brands with greater focus on sustainability

What’s more, 80% of millennials are loyal to socially responsible companies and 58% of travellers believe eco-friendly ingredients and sustainable manufacturing processes are important, says the data.
