Arata is a hair care brand for different types of hair, including curly, short, and frizzy ones. They have more than 50 items in their catalog.

20% of their sales come from their website, while the rest from online marketplaces. One of their most popular product is ARATA Super Shampoo, now available on Amazon (*Affiliate Link):

The ask was for ₹1 crore in exchange for 1.25% equity, to become the number 1 high-performance hair care brand in India.

Vineeta, being from the beauty space, already knew about them and how funded and successful they were. She was not sure why they were still on the show. But the pitchers wanted to take the brand to a whole new level.

They have raised a lot of money in the early days, with the sales reaching ₹17 crores FY2022-23. So, Arata had good money backing them as well as customers flowing in. But all these had one caveat: it is still a loss-making company.

There is hope with the runway for very low for them. Shark’s smart money is very much they need right now. Namita was the first to offer, joined by Vineeta.
