In 2022, the Russian cosmetics industry encountered various hurdles stemming from sanctions and the substantial exodus of dominant foreign corporations from the market. Among the primary obstacles was the limited access to imported raw materials and components essential for the production of cosmetic products. This presented significant obstacles during the initial phase of ramping up domestic manufacturing. Additionally, the industry grappled with the loss of European markets, exacerbating the challenges faced. Furthermore, Russian manufacturers confronted the task of effectively promoting, enhancing awareness of, and instilling confidence in domestic brands. How is the industry, aided by government support, surmounting challenges and bolstering production capacities?
