Following are a few key points that were raised in the panel discussion:
The panel discussed the vision they have for homegrown Indian skincare brands and that their aim is to create a skincare range that is natural, clean and effective, with no collateral damage on the user and at the same time is sustainable. That they are trying to use fresh ingredients and go back to the roots of ancient Indian skincare.
The skincare expert on board, Dr. Dimple, talked about the benefits of natural and organic products over chemical based products which have harmful effect on the skin in the long run.
Environmental consciousness in the manufacturing process was discussed about and how chemical skincare products are harming the ecosystem, hence making organic products a sustainable alternate.
Need of awareness and educating consumers of ingredients and it's benefits, product manufacturing, technology, and making results of clinical trials public.
“From Indian skincare point of view we have a long way to go in creating the awareness and platform of consumer's skincare product choices, all of us as a community have to work together to create that kind of mark on Indian and global market.”
There are around 25 of skincare brands like Aminu, Earth Rhythm, Organic Harvest, Meraki Lanes, Ma Earth Botanical, Miracle Herbs etc, listed on Root Natural who raise their flags for sustainable, clean and cruelty free beauty products that are natural, Ayurvedic, botanic and/or organic.
