Leading herbal and personal care firm Himalaya Drug Company has launch a TVC to further drive the consumption of its Rs 5 sachet packs within the low population markets.


The TVC has been conceptualised by Soho Square and directed by Chinar Gupte. Through the TVC, Himalaya speaks to the young girls and urges them to face the world confidently and happily as they sport a healthier and pimple-free skin.


Said Rajesh Krishnamurthy, Business Head – Consumer Products Division, The Himalaya Drug Company: “The face wash category in urban India is pegged at 1400 crore and growing at 15%, whereas the rural face wash market stands at 280 crores but growing at 31%. Growing twice as much as the urban market and with 5% penetration, rural market gives us an opportunity to make our leading brand Purifying Neem Face Wash now accessible to millions of new consumers in an innovative sachet pack. With this communication we expect to bring new users to the category and thereby benefit from pimple-free healthy skin.”


Vineet Jain, General Marketing – Consumer Products Division, The Himalaya Drug Company added, “With our new sachet communication, we plan to increase category penetration by driving trials among non-users via providing an affordable price point of Rs 5 for 5 ml (approximately 3 washes). This will help increase user base of the face wash category and drive overall category growth.”


“From a creative point of view, the film continues to leverage the consumer insight that young women hold themselves back when they suffer from a pimple problem,” said Ganga Ganapati VP & Head of Office, Soho Square.
