Godrej Expert Rich Crème
Godrej Expert Rich Crème rolled out a digital film that encourages conversations around what 'beautiful' means. This digital film features beauticians of Godrej Salon-I, a flagship programme by Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL), aiming at enhancing livelihood of young girls and women by skilling them for beauty and hair care industry. Understanding that beauty is something that is discussed by women all over, this digital film asks several women to speak about when do they most feel beautiful. The digital film is conceptualized by DDB group. Godrej Expert Rich Crème has been the key knowledge partner for Godrej Salon-I programme. The hair colour brand has designed modules on hair and beauty care, delivered to over 2.5 lakh women. Godrej Expert Rich Crème has periodically provided free products to these women to help kick-start their journey.
Conceptualized by WAT Consult, this women's day, Godrej Appliances launches a campaign encouraging women to question the prevalent label of 'housewife' in our society. It underscores how even women use the labels for themselves without realizing that it is underselling them and hardly does justice to her role and her skills. The film begins with a social media savvy teenager, who urges her mother to join in a social media community. Despite her mother's initial reluctance, the teenager starts creating an online profile for her and poses her questions like her profession, skills etc. While doing so, the teenager points out how her mother - who perceives herself to be just a housewife lacking real skills, is in truth, so multiskilled. It beautifully captures the nuances of a mother-daughter relationship while seeding in a new thought of changing our labels, #HomemakerNotHousewife.
Safety begins at home. Reflecting on this concept, Godrej Locks, a brand synonymous with trust, quality, and safety, embarked on #AgentOfSafety, a digital campaign conceptualized for Women's Day. Through women influencers, the brand is highlighting the role of a women in ensuring safety of not just herself but how she ensures safety at home.
