In the Indian market today, sachets for cosmetics and personal care products are here to stay! Sachets are hugely popular for their portability, ease of use and affordability. Flexible sachets are commonly used for hair products, conditioners, colourants, facial moisturisers, toothpaste and liquid soap with Sunsilk, Clinic Plus and Head & Shoulders referred to as popular trends.

While consumers associate the ‘sachet’ revolution with Hindustan Unilever brands, the trend was apparently initiated by Dr. C.K. Rajkumar who started marketing shampoo sachets under the brand name ‘Velvette’ from his shampoo manufacturing plant in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu in 1979.

It was an experiment destined to be a game changer for the shampoo and cosmetics industry in India. Now, consumers in rural areas could afford shampoos. The retailing channel also changed as sachets moved from chemist stores to just about anywhere – even roadside paan-beedi hawkers stocked these affordable, single-use sachets!

Today, 10 ml flexible pouches account for a majority of shampoo sales with demand for small sizes driven mainly by price-consciousness, especially in rural and semi builtup areas. Almost every FMCG product from shampoo to facial creams, toothpaste, liquid soap, fragrances & more –are available in small sachets.
