Even though we are well aware that models’ perfect look on commercials is not true, we still tend to stare at our wrinkles and blemishes and we get convinced to buy those beauty products.
We all want to have that perfect appearance models have which is why we go and buy what the model sells no matter whether it is a product for our hair, figure or our skin.
However, when it comes to Dove, they proclaim a distinctive campaing because they use real women and girls as models, just like us. These models talk about their imperfections thus making us feel a lot better about ourselves.
This is the main reason why people go and buy Dove products, and because they tell you you are beautiful as you are, not like all the other commercial that shout you are unattractive and you need their product to be more beautiful. Nevertheless, this is all a big scam since Dove, as all the other companies, uses many toxic ingredients as well.
The Beginning of Dove
The Lever Brothers are the founders of this company and they manufactured the beauty bar in 1957 when they proclaimed that this product is much better for your skin than any other soap. The reason why this bar is better is because it contained ¼ cleansing cream. Dove’s logo was the same as today, with the bird silhouette while all the others were focused on red lips, girly and slender.
Women tested the moisturizing effects of the Dove soap before a probably hidden camera during the 60s and that was the new campaing for Dove. Later on, during the 80s, the company focused on one particular woman, Jean Shy who was given a compliment about the beauty of her skin after she used Dove.
The worlwide campaing of Dove started in the 1991 when the Litmus test advertised the low level of alkalinity of the Dove soap which affirmed that it is the mildest bar.
After that, the company started selling shampoos, cleansers, body lotions, deodorants, etc.
Dove’s campaing for Real Beauty was officially launched in 2004, while in 2005 Dove’s fund for Self-Esteem combated eating disorders and displayed the unrealistic portrayals of beauty in the media which made Dove a truly confident company.
As you all know, today Dove is one of the leading brand of cosmetics and their purchases are worth $2.5 billion, in the world. Their products are displayed in more than 80 countries, and women started using them to support their personal beauty.
