At the cusp of aspiration, affordability & accessibility, within six months, T.A.C has shown stellar retail seeding, expansion & growth pan India.”
Shreedha Singh, Co-founder & CEO added, “Our Series A funding is a major milestone for T.A.C.

Our Kumkumadi face care for radiance and youthful skin is a fan favourite, and we look forward to creating more awareness about the efficacy of Ayurveda among the youth.” Nikhil Vora, Founder & CEO Sixth Sense Ventures said, “T.A.C is garnering shelf space in areas dominated by incumbents to become an omnichannel BPC brand. Furthermore, with rapid evolution of consumer preferences towards natural, and now Ayurveda-driven, T.A.C is addressing this with affordable pricing and accessibility across all TGs. Thrilled to partner with the super passionate and determined duo, Param and Shreedha to realise their vision!”
T.A.C has also established a strategic partnership with the Make a Difference (M.A.D), a not-for-profit organisation, to fund the education and empowerment of underprivileged girls in India. T.A.C was founded after Shreedha’s personal encounter with Ayurveda. Suffering from Hives/ Urticaria for over three years with little improvement from modern treatments, she turned to Ayurveda which healed her in just six months. T.A.C’s vision is to HEAL, which stands for Help Embrace an Ayurvedic Life. Recognizing the life-changing potential of Ayurveda, the brand offers uncompromised, pure, top-notch quality, and ethically crafted products.
