A conscious shift towards Natural Beauty products
The beauty industry has seen the worst of it this pandemic. With the closure of stores, suspension of delivery services, the beauty industry seems to have come to a standstill. If anything, this standstill has brought with it the awareness that a lot of consumers earlier didn’t pay much heed to. The Coronavirus has emphasised the importance of using natural remedies to keep up our immunity during these unforeseen times. Similarly, a lot of brands, irrespective of the industry have been speaking up about the benefits of natural ingredients to our health and well-being. With such narratives flooding the internet, it’s only natural that consumers start making conscious decisions when it comes to what they’re subjecting their body to in terms of food, exercises, medicines and even beauty products. Even before Corona, we started to see a shift in the way the world started viewing beauty products. As awareness about animal testing and unethical practices in the beauty industry grows, consumers have now shifted towards using organic, cruelty-free products which are devoid of parabens and sulphates. Even with the rampant greenwashing carried out by several beauty brands out there, it’s affirming to see consumers use their discernment and consciously choose to buy no-harm beauty.

A lot of those who have invested in sustainable beauty products in the past can see the effects and importance of the same amidst this pandemic.
