About Indulekha

Indulekha was first launched in 2009 as premium Ayurvedic hair oil.

Over the years, Indulekha Bringha Oil has carved out a niche for itself supported by endorsements and sustained investments in brand building.

The product was later re-launched in 2014 with a unique comb like cap that aids direct application of oil on the scalp.

The brand has a strong presence across Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It recently forayed into Maharashtra.

It had a turnover of 100 crores rupees and an EBITDA margin of around 30 percent for the year ending March 2015.
