Indian beauty market is booming exponentially and is currently valued at 14 billion dollar (*as of December, 2018). This figure includes beauty products, beauty salons and spa businesses. This growth phase in the Beauty Industry is a result of increased awareness of total well being, increased spending power among the upper middle class and the high rate of digital connectivity that the country enjoys.

Argus CMPO understands the Indian market and can translate this knowledge for the best branding solutions, statistically as well as emotionally. Our services include but are not limited to:

All cosmetic products that are imported for sale in India need to be registered with CDSCO
(Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation). These products are regulated under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940 and Rules 1945 and Labelling Declarations by the Bureau of Indian
Standards (BIS).

There are primarily two reasons for registration being mandatory:

  1. To regulate the indiscriminate import of beauty and personal care products by traders
    who take no responsibilities for contents or consumer dissatisfaction.
  2. To harmonize import requirements with products manufactured in India.

At Argus CMPO, we take pride in putting efforts to ensure that the products imported to India
are 100% compliant as per CDSCO regulations.
