The Himalaya Drug Company has launched a series of campaigns for its products Strawberry Shine Lip Balm and Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion. The new campaigns, conceptualised by Karishma Lintas, emphasises the brand’s commitment to natural and pure solutions.


The commercial for Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Balm rolls out with a series of shots showcasing five protagonists with a concept around, “Wearing a natural smile.” It captures young women in different situations that includes a runner, a girl in college, a girl baking a cake or on a date with her boyfriend. The last girl is seen at the airport applying Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Balm as she looks at the arrival board, showcasing a sense of happiness. Every situation has a happy ending like a well baked cake, a runner breaking her own record or a girl being proposed to by her boyfriend, which brings ‘natural smile’ to their lips. Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Balm doubles the feeling of joy by bringing out a genuine smile.


The second commercial for Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion captures the essence of purity and revolves around the concept of “The Purest Feeling.” The protagonist uses Himalaya right before her performance on stage. The commercial captures her flawless skin and depicts her movements as the other dancers observe her being mesmerized by the softness and fragrance of the lotion, the protagonist exudes confidence like never before.


Rajesh Krishnamurthy, Business Head – Consumer Products Division, The Himalaya Drug Company, says, “Today, categories including Body lotions and Lip Balms are seeing a substantial growth in the market, especially amongst college goers, who are more wary of problems like skin dryness and chapped lips. While, skincare problem is their primary concern, they are increasingly becoming more comfortable with natural ingredients based solutions while not compromising on good sensorial. To meet these requirements we have re-launched our Body Lotions with advanced formulation, premium packaging and appealing sensorial. Our Strawberry Shine Lip balm is the first lip balm formulated using 100 per cent natural color in India. With intense competition in both the categories, we feel our products are differentiated and efforts are being made to communicate their USP in our new TV commercials.”


G V Krishnan, Executive Director, Karishma Lintas said, “Our task was to bring to life the key strength of Himalaya – natural ingredients and 100 per cent herbal color – in a manner that appealed to our TG. The idea of ‘natural smiles’ came from the product benefit and appeals to our target audience on an emotional level. In other words, the most beautiful smiles are the genuine ones.”


Adding further he said, “The benefit of any moisturizing lotion is soft smooth skin. Our challenge was to communicate the product superiority (purest ingredients) of Himalaya Cocoa Butter Body Lotion in a unique manner. The creative idea ‘skin so soft, you feel like you want to touch it over and over again’ was given a new twist: instead of playing out the usual scene of the user being complimented by another person, here she is amazed by the softness of her skin and she loses herself to that moment.”


Created by RU Films, the TVCs have been directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Binny Kapadia.
