#EuIndiaBeauty50 is an initiative of EICBI to discover Top 50 Emerging Beauty Industry Leaders in India & EU and acknowledge the contributions of 50 people from the European Union and India to the beauty sector.


The list was released during the British Parliament session of the Europe India Beauty Summit 2019 which was held on 17th October 2019. This summit, held in London brought together emerging beauty industry leaders from India, UK and EU. 


We scouted for leaders of all ages who are not only contributing to the beauty sector but are also creating a social impact through their work. As we are a body which works in promoting trade and relations between India and EU, we scouted for companies from only these regions. We only expected them to be present either in EU or India and it was not required for them to be present in both the regions. We identified leaders who are not only presently contributing to the beauty sector but also has the potential to leverage this recognition as an emerging beauty industry leader to explore further opportunities in India and European Union (EU) and thereby play a role in enhancing EU and India relations in the near future.."

The women and men who made it to the EuIndiaBeauty50 list represented 16 different nationalities - Denmark, Finland, Germany, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.

We are pleased to present the 2019 class of EuIndiaBeauty50 - Top 50  Emerging Beauty Industry Leaders. 
Few of the young leaders, who attended the summit, received their credentials at the British Parliament in London during the Europe India Beauty Summit on 17th October 2019. Find the photos here -
