“The Indian baby care sector which is still in a nascent stage is expected to enter a growth phase owing to the change in the spending patterns of the Indian consumers,” Chairperson and Managing Director, Biotique, Vinita Jain says.
“Disney characters are well appreciated by the audiences worldwide. We as a brand will resonate with Diney. We aim to bring together the best of both brands — Biotique’s expertise in the skin and hair care segment and the emotional connect kids and families share with Disney, through their great stories, wonderful characters and engaging products,” she adds.
The baby girl/boy and kids girl/boy range includes nourishing soaps and lotions, powder, shampoo, massage oil and body wash. The price range of the products starts at Rs 55 and goes up to Rs 280.
Speaking on the partnership VP and Head, Consumer Products, Abhishek Maheshwari, Disney India, says, “Disney is a brand that parents trust and kids enjoy. At Disney, we constantly look at bringing newer products to consumers as a natural extension to our stories and characters, giving kids and families an opportunity to relive their magical moments. Biotique’s expertise in the personal care market gave us the confidence to launch a range of kids and baby care products with them.”
