Salons are witnessing an increasing client demand for products with natural ingredients
The salon business suffered great losses during the pandemic. It also witnessed a change in the pattern of the clients using beauty products, with a paradigm shift towards natural or organic beauty.
In the New Year, this preference just seems to be catching on due to its extraordinary benefits. Welcoming this trend wholeheartedly, salons have started offering varied options to clients.
Growing awareness and desire to lead a healthy lifestyle is one of the leading factors for this shift, which has extended towards client’s preference of hair and skin care. The products are Eco-friendly and foster sustainability – factors which also contribute to this preference change. Furthermore, age old preferences and the traditional belief that natural ingredients used in beauty products give extraordinary results has provided a fillip to this change.
Demand for natural products in salons on the rise
The demand for clients seeking natural products in salons is on the rise. Responding to this demand, Veena. K, Founder, Naturals Salon, says, “In response to the growing client preference, we have forged partnerships with beauty brands that specialize in premium natural ingredients, ensuring our cosmetic products meet the rising demand for clean and natural formulations.

based options through strategic collaborations and partnerships. The demand for natural products in salons is definitely relevant. You can say it’s a half-and-half situation.”
Natural is safe
The age-old tradition wherein kitchen ingredients were used in beauty products and treatments has made a comeback. After the pandemic, salons realized this trend and were happy to cater to clients with relevant products. Naturals Salons aligned with this increasing awareness and preferences of their salon clientele, tailoring their offerings to meet this demand.

These guarantee our clients a trustworthy and enriching experience” adds Veena. K.
On the other hand, Aanchal Sood, Director of Marketing & HR, Richelon feels, “The consumer should have the choice to decide from a vast range of services and products. With the advent of social media, the consumer is more aware, it’s time to shake the game a little. The same old names need to make way for experience facials and other services.”
Richelon believes that they have always been Inspired by ancient Indian beauty rituals. “Our product range is infused with treasured blends of natural and essential oils. Our facials Gaia has mint and clove extract, Iris has collagen boosting proteins, Chloe has hibiscus and rose extract and Theia has papaya nectar and licorices.
