With #PlantAndPure campaign, Mother Sparsh was able to get a reach of 8 million while launching their Plant Powered range.

According to some studies, the baby care products segment is slated to witness significant growth between 2020 and 2025. Key factors driving this growth include a rise in birth rates and an increase in the number of working women, resulting in dual-income families.
