The episode features their bid for investment to help grow their company, which is also certified vegan and cruelty-free.

"We launched Bloomtown out of our kitchen in Cornwall after spending two years in Indonesia and witnessing first-hand the devastation caused to virgin forests and native wildlife by the palm oil industry.

"Global demand for palm oil is ever increasing, so we felt it was time to create reasonably priced, palm oil-free alternatives, to help raise awareness and lower overall demand for palm oil.

"We've seen huge growth in the last two years and have won multiple awards, including Gold in the Best Brand category of the FreeFrom Skincare Awards in 2017.

"We were looking for ways to grow our company so that we could keep up with our ever-increasing orders.

"After a lengthy process, we were thrilled to finally get the call that we'd be appearing on the show and are really looking forward to everyone's reactions!"

Dragons' Den is on BBC Two at 8pm Sunday 3rd February.
