Commenting on the latest developments and the survey, Anurag Kedia, Co-Founder and CEO, Pilgrim said, ”The rise in global demand for clean beauty and skincare products has been phenomenal. Indian consumers have also shown a growing appetite for clean and non-toxic offerings. It is interesting to see how the modern millennials and Gen-Zs have spent more on clean beauty than the previous generations. We have also seen an increasing demand for vegan and animal cruelty-free products. Younger generations have played a huge role in this shift and are motivating the previous generations to join this movement. As a brand, we take pride in being 100% vegan, animal-friendly and plastic positive.
Earlier this year, Pilgrim released a data survey that revealed the growing demand for K-beauty products in the Indian market. The data gave interesting insights on product preferences and the geographical preferences of K-beauty products.
