When it comes to luxury homegrown skincare brands, Kama Ayurveda always holds a sweet spot in terms of brand positioning. Known as the OG of Ayurvedic skincare, the brand is now going global with the announcement of its new retail expansion in the United Kingdom. The brand will open its first standalone store at  207 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, London in November and will also retail out British luxury giant Harrods exclusively from October 20. “We are looking forward to this pivotal moment for Kama Ayurveda as it extends its bricks-and-mortar experience internationally for the first time,” said Founder & Chairman, Vivek Sahni. 
This is the second big move by Kama Ayurveda after the successful launch of the brand’s global e-commerce platform, in  June 2023.
