At GoDaddy we see the impact Covid-19 crisis is having on micro-businesses.

Since the crisis hit the UK, micro-businesses have been put under extraordinary pressures.

In order to help you adapt to these challenging times, we’ve pulled together resources to help you stay open, even if your doors are closed. We want to help to get you through tough times.

We have spoken to a number of subject matter experts, all of whom are small business owners running their own companies. The interviews are designed to help other entrepreneurs with advice on how to stay open during COVID-19.

This week, we speak with Zaffrin O’Sullivan, founder of beauty business Five Dot Botanics. We speak with the beauty business side-hustler on how people can look after themselves during this very tough time. Added to this, GoDaddy learns more about Five Dot Botanics’ recent partnership with a distillery, whereby they now provide a free sanitizer for NHS workers in the South East of London. Watch the full interview below:

It’s for shop owners minding their customers’ and employees’ safety — and for everyone who stands with small business.

As #OpenWeStand gains momentum and the need for resources for small and micro-businesses increases. GoDaddy UK will use customers to foster a GoDaddy inspired community of support for those in most in need.

About Five Dot Botanics

Five Dot Botanics is based in London and was created by Zaffrin and Brian to offer proof that effective skincare can be formulated with minimal ingredients.  Our aim is for total transparency.

It asks a question of you – how many chemicals have you unknowingly put on your skin today?

We use only five ingredients in any product so that you can get comfortable with what you are putting on your skin. It was a scientific challenge to formulate using only five natural ingredients per product, but the results have been worth the effort.
