Are You A Woman Looking For A Grant For Your Skin Care & Wellness Business?… You’ve Found The Right Site
Did you know that 80% of all skin care specialists are women? And that the cosmetic skin care industry in America is worth about $40 billion annually?
It’s no wonder that women are starting businesses related to skin care — from waxing specialists to make-up consultants to laser technicians. The most challenging part to starting a skincare business (or growing an existing business) is funding. Start up costs can be anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000.
We don’t see a lot of grants given towards women specifically in the skin care industry, but we believe it deserves its own.
That’s why we give “Business Specific” Grants based on each month’s category — including a grant specific to women in the Skin Care industry during the month of November.
November’s Business Specific Grant is Skin Care
Your Skin Care applications can include any subcategory such as:
- Skin Care Sales
- Traveling Esthetician
- Wax Specialist
- Paramedical Esthetician
- Facial Treatments
- Laser Technician
- Beauty Specialist
- Makeup Consultant
- Skincare Specialist
Here’s How You Become Eligible for Our November “Skin Care” Business Specific Grant
— As Well As All Our Additional Grants:

We give “hands-on” marketing help to a selected female-owned business. It includes strategic sessions with members of our AdvisoryBoard and other “friends of WomensNet.” It also includes professional agency support in developing and executing a marketing plan. This is a grant a non-profit business can win as well.
