The COVID-19 outbreak has led to a clear and a lasting change in the minds of the consumers, their awareness and their buying patterns in regards to personal and healthcare products. Social isolation and distancing and ample ‘me-time’ has brought more awareness in the self-care regimes of the consumers which has given a boost to this industry. Moreover, with market needs being driven by innovations, it is exhibiting a demand for natural ingredients,” said Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India.
