The objective of this campaign was to get their customers to buy Dove over another brand but the claim was to prove that all women are uniquely beautiful in their own ways. So in other words, show the attractiveness but at the same time they showed how companies deceive their customers. The Dove Evolution Commercial starts off by showing an average looking woman with no makeup on and natural hair. Throughout the commercial, they fast forward, more and more people come and start doing the woman’s hair and makeup. After this appearance, they begin taking pictures and select one that meets their standard. But they’re not done yet, they take that picture and photo shop it. They change the size of her neck, face, and make her skin look smoother than ever. This shows how companies can use any image and change it into something totally different from the natural self. The product who is a gorgeous model appears nothing like the average woman they showed in the beginning of this commercial. This is called the compare and contrast method, a strategy Dove used the most to show the differences and similarities of something. They first show a natural woman and then after editing, they showed a completely fake person because it looks nothing like the original. Companies who do this deceive society just to gain their revenue but the sad thing is they don’t care

The main function of the business to create a safe and natural company that the public is able to recognise as a brand that looks after the consumer. As a brand, we want to return the quality to the customer if they are trusting us to look after their bodies and needs.

Cosmetics and personal care industry is growing day by day as people are becoming more sensible about their appearance. Not only women but men are also attracted to improve their looks. Canadian men had started taking care of their skin and became more conscious about beauty to enhance their professional credibility.

The main purpose of this business report is to review the appropriateness of Jurlique cosmetic products for the Australian target market. The key findings are: Australia is a huge market for cosmetic and toiletry industry, while it is full of competition due to the zero duty on American cosmetics; Jurlique is a well established brand for most Australia customers, however, it still needs unique selling points other than natural ingredient to expand its market share. This is mostly based on the product research and development.
Dove – is a brand that initiates conversation about real beauty and truly a women advocate. Dove has been helping women to celebrate who they are and their real beauties through highly emotional campaigns. These campaigns were mostly promoted through ATL advertising but the campaigns became viral on digital media as well.
Young girls are more concerned about acnes and blackheads while mature women are looking for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products. Genders do affect the choice of skin care products. In the past, skin care products only belong to the girls’ world. Nevertheless, in recent years, men are increasingly becoming more and more concerned about skin care. With a view to this latest trend, various brands have started developing men’s line. Income level directly affects the purchasing power of customers. Skin care products take up a wide range of price levels from far less than a hundred dollars to more than a thousand. Young girls who do not have any income cannot afford the expensive skin care products while mature women with higher purchasing power focus more on quality and effectiveness. Occupations also determine the need for skin care products. Models and artists generally have a higher consciousness on skin care than people with less exposure to the public.
Dove is a world-leading personal care brand and is managed by Unilever, one of the world largest consumer goods manufacturers. As Unilever is seeking for expanding the product scope, the positioning of Dove, which has remained for 40 years as a beauty bar, is being challenged. We need to deliver a message that represents the brand and we come up with “The Campaign for Real Beauty”.
Sissela Bok is focused on truth and provides three different steps to see if a choice is ethical. The first is to consult one’s conscience (Patterson & Wilkins, 2014). Since Dove is a company and not a single individual, one has to place themselves in their place of Dove. Is presenting a more honest version of woman an adequate and ethical marketing ploy? Most likely. However, is this campaign done with the knowledge of the products being sold? The majority of Dove products are hair products, body wash, and antiperspirants. Yes, they do sell firming skin cream, but these are not generally being advertised in this campaign. The real beauty
Dove launched advertisements and campaigns which showed everyday women with different looks and figures which was not perfect as per the traditional stereotypes. But the campaigns focused on the beauty of these women. The main aim of this strategy was to make every woman “feel good about herself”. A strong emotional connect is what the company wanted to establish by these marketing campaigns. These campaigns helped increase the self esteem of women who did not fit the tall, blonde and thin stereotype. This made the company establish a connection with majority of the women. Other innovative ideas were also part of Dove’s strategy over the years. A video known as “Dove Real Beauty Sketches” is one of their most celebrated ads with over 55 million views on Youtube. Dove success lies in the fact that it is never stagnant. It continuously evolves itself and aligns its strategy as per the market requirement. It has also used women from all age groups while promoting their products thereby ensuring a reach to higher number of people. It has also worked to keep its product line small. It has also reduced the number of products from 1600 to only 400. This showed that constantly updating your strategy as per requiring is a pre requisite for success
I am recommending that Dove should continue to stay the current course of designing marketing campaigns to redefine what real beauty is and also push to promote more natural skin care products. Dove is able to stand out with the message they are communicating
Dove had developed self-confidence work shops for women and girls, which are in line with its objective of maintaining the “Real Beauty” image. Using women from different ethnic background is also a good strategy for Dove to continue. This strategy welcomes international women differences and Dunleavy’s team gained a competitive advantage by using women of all shapes, sizes and color.
Beginning in 2010 Dove launched Dove Men+Care designed to help him be comfortable in his own skin. The product line consists of Face and Body Wash, Bars, and Antiperspirants and Deodorants. In addition to helping women take great care of themselves, the Dove Men+Care line has proven successful within the Unilever commitment to quality. (CITE) At a high-level within this essay we will review buyer behavior, and how Dove is moving the needle throughout global.

Many cosmetic brands are popping up recently, perhaps, due to the increasing consumers of products that beautify and enhance the physical appearance of a person.
