Foxtale claims that its users are spread across 100 Indian cities, spanning over 90% of all Indian pin codes. Foxtale retails on its website, along with digital marketplaces such as Nykaa, Amazon, Blinkit, Flipkart and Myntra. The brand primarily targets women aged 23-35 years, residing in metropolitan, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.

Foxtale is said to be having high retention rate of over 50%, which validates the consumer love and consequent growth that the company has seen. The brand aims to turn profitable by FY25. 

The broader beauty and personal care category has offlate been witnessing increasing interest from the investors.
