Unilever will eliminate ‘normal’ from beauty products

And Unilever pledged to increase advertising featuring underrepresented models. The company said it would not digitally alter a person’s body shape or skin color in its advertising, according to a Tuesday news release.

“Normal” could typically be found on products like shampoo, such as “for normal to oily hair,” or lotion “for normal skin.” The shift comes after several of the company’s advertising campaigns sparked a backlash.

Women Who are Transforming the Beauty Industry with Their Organic Products

It is ironic how society expects women to look beautiful and stay fashionable but discourages them when they start a business around the same themes. But this is just one among the many barricades women have bulldozed their way through to make a mark in the industry.

India’s cosmetic industry has been on a high growth curve and is expected to cross $20 billion by 2025. Only three years ago it was valued at $6.5 billion. With more and more women joining the workforce, the spending capacity of the country’s women has also been on the rise. This has enabled and encouraged more young women to buy beauty products, creating a burgeoning market for entrepreneurs to cater to the demand.

Here are five such female entrepreneurs who have disrupted the beauty industry with not just their organic products but also with their exceptional leadership. Let’s celebrate these trailblazing women who
