Age old Indian transnationals include – Dabur (1884), Amrutanjan (1893), Himalaya (1930), Baidyanath (1917), VICCO (1952) and many more! The World Health Organization statistics demonstrate traditional medicine as being the primary system of health care. In neighbouring Sri Lanka too, the number of traditional Ayurveda practitioners is greater than trained modern medicine professionals!

The increasing demand & popularity for AYUSH natural products is fueled by a new impetus through unprecedented MNC-like advertising and marketing blitzkrieg. Patanjali & mass brands in a fierce competition for the buyers buck have unleashed media campaigns as never before. Add to this the power of social media. They have undertaken to educate consumers about the benefits of using natural products through product promotions and POP displays. The cosmetics industry has a plethora of herbal cosmetic brands and in all areas of living, organic replacements compete effectively with chemical-based or synthetic products. A rising number of exclusive showrooms and increasing availability through malls, retail, supermarkets, multi-branded stores is also boosting sales of AYUSH Natural products.
