The month of April marks the beginning of the new financial year. Having assessed the hits and misses of 2018, we have officially geared up for FY2019-20. The beauty and wellness industry cannot stress enough on the importance of innovation in skin care particularly. Industry stakeholders are of the opinion that innovation is the only way to accelerate business in terms of meeting consumer demands, building positive brand value, staying ahead in the competition, among others. Keeping this in mind, we focus on the skin care industry, which is considered as one of the rapidly growing dynamic markets in India. According to a report by Business Wire, the Indian skin care market stood at $1.6 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9% to reach $2.7 billion by 2023, on the back of rising disposable income, increasing demand for skin care products across all age groups, especially young population, and growing awareness among consumers about various skin care products. Keeping this in mind, we speak with top players who share their ‘most innovative’ product, business strategies adopted, challenges faced, and the road ahead In the Hair section, we have Manuel Mon, Owner and Creative Director of Manuel Mon Estilistas in Oviedo, Spain. Manuel is an award-winning platform artist and one of the most inspiring avant-garde hairdressers working today. On a recent visit to Delhi, India, we meet Omar Antonio, Sebastian Professional Expert, and Owner of ‘ME’ an Omar Antonio Salon in Benicia, California. He is renowned for avant-garde styling, precision haircuts and everything in between. But, on stage is where his true talent and passion shine.
