Personal grooming is essential and vital.
You cannot expect a healthy lifestyle if you start avoiding the basic things that your body, mind & skin needs. Traditionally; people resorted to products that were homemade; but now having such a busy lifestyle you can’t afford a detailed & time taking process.
As a result; a new market that caters to such requirements have been generated which clearly focuses on the needs that are left unserved. There are a lot of brands that have established their hold & loyalty. As a result; now they are expanding. On Thursday; one such brand Wow skincare announced its funding infusion.
Let’s get inside the article to know more about the amount & other details.
The company has received an amount of $ 50 million from a home-based equity firm Chrys Capital. The investors in return now hold a minority stake.
The basic focus will be to reach consumers through different channels & try to enter markets that are still untapped.
The founder Manish Choudhary made an optimistic statement quoting that “WOW Skin Science is a “consumer first” brand in the D2C space. We strive to optimize the consumer’s experience and address their problems and pain points by leveraging technology and innovation. From being a digital-first brand, the vision now is to scale up to become the number one brand in the toxin-free space within the larger FMCG sector,”
Chrys Capital is known for investing in segments that are directly connected to the end recipient which is consumers. They are an active investor in other ventures like First Cry, Dream Sports & so on.
The MD of the company Ashish Agarwal stated that WOW has been able to tap that unique segment of toxic free beauty products which is definitely going to be the top most priority in the next few generations as per the demographic changes. The company would extend full support in order to take this regime out of the country too and diversify in the best possible manner.
