The demand for beauty and personal care products on Myntra is going off the charts, piggybacking off a huge surge in demand! With self-care and DIY activities getting a fillip during the pandemic, personal care products entered the haloed category of ‘essentials’ and Myntra.com stepped up to deliver exactly what consumers wanted. Adding strength to this category with a range of products is the launch of Bath & Body Works, the world’s leading specialty retailers & home to America’s Favorite Fragrances®. Renowned for its exclusive fragrances, body lotion, scented candles, body cream, body wash and hand soap, Bath & Body Works is all set to woo the discerning Indian audience.
The brand has swooned customers in the USA for over 20 years. With the launch on Myntra, they now look to increase their footprint across India. Myntra’s reach and popularity make for an ideal platform for the brand to spread its presence across geographies and connect with a wider base of consumers.

The loyal customers of Bath & Body Works have a lot to look forward to, with over 400 exclusive products across body care and home fragrance. Some of the most popular products include fine fragrance mists, body moisturizers, body lotions and creams, men’s body moisturizers, and body scrubs. The brand’s signature fragrance, Gingham, has been a top seller since its launch. Some of the other favourites include You’re the One, Japanese Cherry Blossom, A Thousand Wishes, and Into the Night.
Bath & Body Works is also the top seller of 3-wick candles in America and has several fragrances in its kitty to entice customers. The candles are crafted with a patented soy blend wax and premium lead-free wicks and leave a smooth, beautiful melt pool every time for consistent quality from beginning to end. It also promises an aroma lasting up to 45 hours, thanks to high concentrations of rich fragrance oils!
