The Indian Home & Personal Care Industry Association (IHPCIA) is incorporated as a non-profit organization under Section 25(1)(a)(b) of the Indian Companies Act 1956. IHPCIA has been formed on the basis of the request received from several Soaps, Detergents and Cosmetics' manufacturers and associated suppliers and service providers. This need was also perceived at the meetings with the International Associations of Soap and detergents who had participated at the earlier conferences at Goa. The existing Indian Soap & Toiletries Makers' Association (ISTMA) has its own limitations and new association can bridge the same. The mandate of IHPCIA is to promote the Home and Personal Care Industries including Soaps, Detergents, Cosmetics, Toiletries and affiliated and associated industries.
