Personal care brand WOW Skin Science on Friday said India-focused private equity firm ChrysCapital will invest 50 million (around ₹373 crore) in the company for a significant minority stake.

“ChrysCapital has agreed to invest ₹50 million in the company for a significant minority stake. The transaction is a combination of a primary raise by the company for growth initiatives, and a secondary sale by existing shareholders,” WOW Skin Science said in a statement.

Wow Skin Science was founded in 2014, by brothers Manish and Karan Chowdhary.

Ashish Agrawal, Managing Director, ChrysCapital, said WOW Skin Science founders have demonstrated a robust historical track record by significantly outperforming the industry growth while demonstrating superior capital efficiency.

“We look forward to helping WOW grow multi-fold by further increasing online penetration, driving pan-India offline expansion, and launching new brands in adjacent categories,” he added.

PricewaterhouseCoopers and J Sagar Associates (JSA) advised Wow Skin Science while Quillon Partners advised ChrysCapital.
