Priti A Sureka, Manager, Emami, agrees that the FMCG company’s abundance of an iconic antiseptic brand makes it far easier to reach the busy Indian health care region. Today, the category “hygiene” applies to a community of items involving hand cleaning, hand washing, disinfectants, and soaps for germ-killing Emami’s leadership agreed to carry out its sanitize launch in mid-March this year. Box sizes, architecture, connectivity, monitoring, development, etc. have been finished easily.
During the last couple of months, the hand sanitizer market has seen more than 350 coordinated brands entering. As revealed by Sureka, the section had approximately Rs 100 crore turnover before the COVID and expects to cross Rs 700 crore by the end of the year.”
She said the sanitizer demand seems to have settled between July and August after the big spurt from February to June. In recent months, Emami BoroPlus antiseptic flagship has reached three of the four groups listed above. In April, the hand sanitizer BoroPlus was released. The introduction of BoroPlus anti-septic soap and hand wash in June followed.
Measures have been taken to ensure that the commodity has not been relegated to the first assistance package. The package has been updated to introduce ‘cosmetic pictures,’ which customers ‘would not care to have on the clothing table.’ Cutting, injuring and accident-related application is primarily associated with an antiseptic solution. We began to disperse the brand, not just the lips, but also the extended arms. Promotions of many other purposes have been retained and arranged. It could even be used to fix dryness cream, night cream, etc., ” Sureka said.
Sureka notes that the thresholds for handwashing patterns are 15 percent higher and are projected to nearly double the post-pandemic average of the pre-COVID range. The brand also sees the crossover of soap from ‘germ-kill’ varieties to beauty-specific and general soaps.
BoroPlus hand sanitizers are offered in a range of packets from 2 ml, to 5L jerry-can. The smaller bottles are aimed at those on the lane, while the larger bottles are meant for refilling or holding in the home. The jerry can is for recharging and institutional marketing purposes only.

The brand also sees the crossover of soap from ‘germ-kill’ varieties to beauty-specific and general soaps. BoroPlus leads the antiseptic cream segment, containing brands such as Boroline, Boro Calendula, Borosoft, and others. It also competes in the broader field of emollients, like oil jelly or cold creams, because of its multi-purpose use.
The company has also maintained the BoroPlus color motif ‘lavender and white’ in its spectrum of grooming. Consumers are searching for skin-free items. Sureka says they need “germ-kill,” but still very gently in their hands. The family picture on the packs reflects the focus community. The media mix for hygiene promotions includes traditional media such as ATL and BTL, which are closely targeted to digital and new-age e-commerce sites.
