Good Bubble set to fly high after Dragons’ Den investment secured

The 27 year old entrepreneur Amy Wordsworth from Manchester, entered the Den to make her pitch to the Dragons and after overcoming a dizzy spell during the grilling, goes on to impress and secure a £60,000 investment from Deborah for a 40 per cent stake in the business.

“It was certainly a rollercoaster in the Den,” says Amy. “The pressure does mount which left me feeling rather light-headed at one point. But, the Dragon’s rallied round and after lending me a chair to recover I carried on with the pitch.

“I am thrilled to have Deborah’s support. With her level of knowledge, experience in building retail brands and driving routes to market, my dream of seeing Good Bubble become a part of families’ lives the world over is within reach.”

The investment boost will support a programme of international expansion, new product development, branding, PR and marketing campaigns. Launched in 2014 with a mission to bring some excitement to children’s bathtime, Good Bubble is the first children’s range to use superfruits and all products contain natural, gentle ingredients with no harsh chemicals.

Whimsical characters – Dexter Dragon Fruit and Clara Cloudberry – developed by Amy and created by children’s illustrator Kristyna Litten, feature on the bottles of haircare, body washes and bubble baths creating a magical story to engage little ones.

Speaking about he deal Meaden said: “It is becoming more evident that what we put on our skin, is as important as what we put in our mouths. As a result consumers have never been more savvy about what goes in to the products they use on their family. In particular, parents want to be assured that bathtime products are gentle enough for young skin. The natural formulations and the fun element were a big part of Good Bubble’s appeal. For me, it’s also as much about the people as it is the products. I was quickly impressed by Amy’s level of research and knowledge of her market. The energetic passion with which she has built the brand coupled with how she carried herself in the Den, and came back fighting from a tricky moment cinched it for me.”
