Vega aims to refresh cosmetic industry with SERY

The prices have been kept competitive.

NEW DELHI: Personal care appliances brand Vega has forayed into the cosmetic brand with the name SERY. The company launched its product through e-commerce channels including its own website. SERY has entered the market with an easy-to-use, stick format make-up range.

The brand has roped Bollywood actress Amyra Dastur as the brand ambassador. As part of the association, Dastur will be featured in the latest launch campaign video. 

The company has expanded its footprints at a time when the cosmetic industry has been facing a steep decline due to the pandemic. Not only India but across the APAC region, many cosmetic brands have witnessed net sales decreased in the past few months.

SERY MD Sandeep Jain shared, “The Covid2019 pandemic has had a negative impact on the industry. But many indigenous brands have started creating stronger e-commerce presence since offline has taken a hit. Individuals, particularly millennials, continue to purchase items via e-commerce platforms besides buying products directly from their favourite brands’ websites. So, having a strong presence in leading e-commerce platforms will be of help. However, retail will continue to be a point of focus for us in the near future.”

VEGA has been a known brand in the personal care market. The company started its operation in 2006 as a makeup brush brand but transformed itself into a one-stop-shop brand for beauty care accessories and personal care appliances by 2013. 

“Ever since we launched Vega in the Beauty Accessories and Personal Care Appliances category, our aim was to diversify into other segments. Although our initial plan was to bring everything together under one roof, we realised that launching a fresh brand would help in transforming the market without losing the intrinsic values of the respective brands,” he said.

The idea behind launching a new brand, in an already cluttered market, was to bring the consumers something different and unique as a concept. “Being unique in terms of the pricing model and the product itself is of huge importance to brands today. The advent of the digital age has exposed the younger generation to a whole new world of products that are better, cheaper and more easily accessible,” he added.

The brand mentioned that it’s not possible to have a retail presence right now, but a large population continues to shop from their favorite retail store instead of e-commerce.

Jain also added that the pricing is competitive and comparable to big brands. Instead of the regular OOH billboard style of campaigns, the brand will look at digital for now.
