Avataar Skincare Founder Success Story: How She Builds Avataar Skincare Technologies?

Saumya Misra is also a national-level pistol shooter. She was excellent in academics as well as sports. Despite having all the talent, she used to feel low as she had acne on her face. After suffering for a long time with skin issues, she got to know about a laser treatment that changed her life. However, she spent a lot of money on her recovery which is not possible for all. Skincare clinics and treatments charge a high amount.

Saumya realized that not only a single clinic, but the industry of skincare treatment is not standardized. The high price makes it unaffordable for many. After observing the trend of having everything at home, she decided to take her brand Avataar Skincare to every household providing skincare laser treatments to people at their homes. They deal in providing solutions for Acne, Pigmentation, unwanted hair, hair fall, and also weight reduction.

Avataar Skincare Technologies is US FDA (Food And Drug Administration) approved and safe for use. They have dermatologist-designed treatments that technicians provide to you at your home. They use cocktail technology to ensure better results. They have 20%-30% lower prices for their services compared to other companies. Avataar has reached 7,000 customers practically till now.

They have 50 therapists for them.

Avataar Skincare Shark Tank Journey:

Avataar Skincare’s founder journey started after she observed that not only she but many people are going through some skin or body issues facing criticism and low self-esteem for their looks. Saumya asked for Rs. 70 Lakhs for 1% equity at a valuation of Rs. 70 Crores. Her cousin is in the laser business so she gets access to cheaper laser devices. He got the most results from tier 2 and tier 3 cities after which Saumya got to know the opportunity in the market.

Shark Anupam gave the first offer for Rs. 70 Lakhs for 3% equity. While Shark Aman gave the same offer. However, Saumya wants to match the valuation. She counteroffered for a debt-equity combination to get a Rs. 70 crore valuation. They revise the offer to Rs. 20 Lakhs for 0.28% equity and Rs. 50 Lakhs debt @14% interest for three years. Saumya Misra counteroffers Rs. 35 Lakhs as equity and the rest as debt. Both Shark Aman and Anupam combine and make a deal with her.

Avataar Skincare Funding:

Avataar Skincare started with an investment of Rs. 1.5 Crores and gets a grant for $100k later. Avataar Skincare funding from Shark Tank is for Rs. 35 lakhs for 0.5% equity and Rs. 35 Lakhs for 14% interest for three years. The deal is done with Shark Anupam Mittal, Founder and CEO of People Group and Shaadi.com, and Shark Aman Gupta, Co-founder and CMO of boAt.  They are available on Instagram as well by the user name @avataarskincare.
