Talking about the expansion into the Indian subcontinent, Rajesh Khatri, Managing Director, Glowderma, says, “It is expected that the baby care market in India will reach up to Rs 10,000 crore in 2025. Around 45 percent of skin problems such as dry skin, rashes, dermatitis, etc. are seen in babies and children between 0 to 5 years of age group. The increasing incidence of skin problems in babies is due to climate changes, improper hygiene, and poor nutrition, and increased use of nappies or diapers, etc. Therefore, the launch of Sanosan Baby Skin Care Products is a step forward towards the strategic direction to increase the width and depth of our derma portfolio in India.”

Christine Steger, CEO of Mann & Schroder Cosmetics Germany, producer of Sanosan baby care brand, stated, “I became a mother in 2018, therefore I can really relate to how new mothers feel right now. When we created Sanosan, we had the vision of a caring mother, Naturally with Love. This was our mantra while developing only with the best ingredients to care and protect all newborn tiny miracles.”
