A SCOTTISH family business has launched in Harrods in Edinburgh.

East Lothian-based ethical vegan hair care products maker Moo & Yoo was set up by salon owner Suzie Gillespie, her daughter Olivia, husband Scott and son Ali.

Ms Gillespie said: “Olivia was keen to be involved, with her passion for sustainability and a business degree behind her she was up for the challenge. Before long the whole family had joined in the journey and Moo & Yoo was born.”

Edinburgh’s new shopping quarter hosts the store’s inaugural branch of its standalone beauty concept north of the Border. 

The St James Quarter hailed the earlier launch of the first H Beauty store opening in Scotland.

Thet added: "We have always known that our products are very special and to be recognised and stocked in the world's most luxurious store is something that we are incredibly proud of.
