The Beauty and Makeup Market in India is a booming sector and was valued at Rs 901.07 billion 5 years ago, in 2018. As per experts and researchers, the market is further estimated to reach a staggering figure of Rs 2,463.49 billion by 2024, rapidly growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 18.40 percent during the 2019-2024 period. The huge demand for beauty and cosmetics products can be attributed to the rise in the income of the middle class along with awareness regarding holistic well-being in this largely polluted environment. The beauty and cosmetic industry in India has not been largely dominated by legacy players and startups with their innovation, quality, and pricing have been able to successfully turn heads with their growth and development.

Answer 1.
Well, this is the era of Entrepreneurs and I have always wanted to pursue Entrepreneurship as I deeply believe it has the power to influence and help society evolve for the betterment. Makeup is something which I have been fond of and it is something which helps people in boosting their confidence and self-esteem. Pampering your skin is something which most of us like and so do I and makeup is something which is one of the ways to do the same. Following my passion, I decided to launch Praush Beauty along with the support of my Co-founder Gaurav Mishra.

However, the primary reason to form a company was because I noticed that despite numerous players in the market, there were hardly any brands that were providing natural makeup and cosmetics products that were free of harmful ingredients and are suited best for Indian skin tones. People, in recent times, have become quite aware of the damage those chemicals can do to their skin and this is the reason why there was a need for a brand that is free from harmful chemicals, toxins, and irritants. Moreover, we aim to make cosmetics products accessible to every Indian at a reasonable price and this is how Praush Beauty was born.

Question 3.
What challenges did you face while establishing Praush Beauty in the highly competitive cosmetics market, and how did you overcome them?

Answer 3.
Establishing Praush Beauty in the highly competitive cosmetics market came with its fair share of challenges. One of the major hurdles we faced was sourcing top-quality ingredients while ensuring affordability. We understood that premium quality doesn't have to come with an exorbitant price tag, and our team worked tirelessly to strike a balance between luxury and accessibility. Through meticulous research and collaborations with trusted suppliers, we were able to source high-grade ingredients without compromising on our commitment to affordability.

Moreover, in a diverse country like India, catering to a wide range of skin tones was a challenge in itself. We invested significant time and resources in understanding the unique needs of Indian skin tones and developing a comprehensive range of shades that complemented the natural beauty of every individual. Our dedication to inclusivity and customization has helped us create a loyal customer base that appreciates our efforts to celebrate diversity. We do not just want to be a household name in India but our vision is to make Praush Beauty the best Cosmetics and Makeup Brand in India .
