5 Beauty Brands From The South Of India!

Women Entrepreneurs !

Beauty is skin deep, which means beauty that’s true and real comes from within. External beauty doesn’t define a person, a person’s worth shouldn’t be determined by the way they look. Beauty brands have tapped into this ideology and introduced products that don’t guarantee “fairness” but rather focus on skin health. These brands have a direct impact on people’s quality of life. If you empower them with tools that improve their day-to-day life, they are sure to achieve greater heights. 

South Indian beauty brands have found a place in the industry. They tailor the products to our requirements. From moisturisers to concealers, sunscreen to lip colours, these brands focus on South Indian skin. Here are 5 brands that are from the South and for the South:

  1. Daughter Earth is a clean, conscious, plant-powered skincare, haircare and makeup brand, which was founded by Prashanthy Gurugubelli, who is based in Hyderabad.

The ingredients used by the brand are reef-safe and earth friendly, making the brand both vegan and cruelty-free. The packaging of the brand is done in such a way that it can be recycled. Their white opaque and dark amber glass and aluminium protect the product from photo-oxidation and are recyclable. The brand does not use any plastic materials for its packaging making the brand a sustainable option.

  2. Vilvah is a skincare, haircare and body care brand based out of Coimbatore which was founded by Kruthika Kumaran.
