E-Commerce Beauty Platform Root Natural Forays into India

Root Natural, an e-commerce beauty platform that offers handpicked and chemical-free skincare products, launches in India exclusively for Indian skin types. Root Natural has been developed with the idea to create an innovative platform that would offer chemical & cruelty-free, clean beauty products in India. 

Root Natural aims to introduce the products that are developed in the soils of India, with naturally sourced ingredients that are tailor-made for the Indian skin and the environment both.

On the launch of the brand, Pooja Parkar, Founder of Root Natural, said, "From ancient times, we learned that the most important part of the trees is their roots. But we never realize that roots aren’t just important for trees; they play a vital role in defining a person’s individuality. Roots often personify the individuality of a person. This thought inspired me to create this brand called Root Natural which symbolizes the Indian roots through Indian skincare. Since a very young age, I have always been fascinated by skin routines and skin products. But the thing that still baffles me is that the majority of the Indian audiences are unaware of their own country’s offerings."
