Gunas founder Sugandh Agrawal said “Beauty soaps have a huge opportunity in terms of being animal-free and formulated with pure ingredients….This new direction is an extension of our core values of inner beauty inside and out, without harming any living being.”
The angel investor will not only be helping with the new vegan soap line but also with trademarking and digital marketing. The company will also use the financial help to expand sales in Asia.
In just the short amount of time Guna’s has been gracing the vegan fashion scene, they have made impressive strides. Last year they were presented with the Macy's Best Retail Bag Award in New York City at the Independent Handbag Awards. The company’s sales have skyrocketed in recent years, largely due to the growing vegan movement.
