According to Euromonitor, this sector burgeoned into a $16.5 billion market in 2023.

The Past Ideas of White Beauty

India has been a nation of diversity with skin tones that have every hue covered in them, for the most part, we have not known open discrimination based on the color of our skin tones. Culturally pluralistic views of beauty are a characteristic of the Indian beauty ecosystem, with each region having its ideas and traditions of beauty standards. With the ions of the passage of time and countless invasions, the idea of a set standard of beauty began to take hold with the coming of the Afghans, Iranians, and Mughals to the British Raj. Set standardized notions had taken deep roots of what is Indian Beauty.
