See How Dove Has Flown

Tallahassee City, (PressExposure) May 04, 2009 -- One of the most prominent health and beauty companies in the Philippines today is dove philippines []. Known for its popular soaps that leaves every skin smooth and fair, Dove quickly became a popular brand of soap among the Filipino people. Dove is also known as one of the many products marketed by Unilever, but what else does anyone know about the soap?

A Further Look on Dove

According to dove philippines [], Dove is primarily made from synthetic surfactants, as well as some vegetable oil based soap ingredients, such as sodium palm kernelate. Dove is formulated to be pH neutral, with a pH that is usually between 6.5 and 7.5. So where did the brand came from? Dove products are manufactured in The Netherlands; Hammond, Indiana, USA; Germany; Ireland and Brazil. In the US, Dove bar soap is currently produced in the cool moisture, exfoliating, sensitive skin unscented, nutrium nourishing, white, pink, calming night, pro-age, and energy glow versions.

History Behind Dove

Dove soap was launched in the US in 1957, years after Unilever acquired soap factory De Duif (Dutch: The Dove) in The Netherlands, from which the English brand name Dove is derived. Dove has been positioned throughout its history without referring to it as "soap" and as a "beauty bar" with one-fourth cleansing cream; they stress its moisturizing of skin while washing in contrast to the drying effects of regular soaps (which their advertising calls simply "soap").

Advertisements reinforced the message by showing the cream being poured into the beauty bar. In 1979, the phrase "cleansing cream" was replaced with "moisturizer cream". In 1979, a Pennsylvania dermatologist showed that Dove dried and irritated skin significantly less than ordinary soaps. As a result of this study, Unilever started aggressive marketing and won more than 24% of the market by 2003.

Popular Marketing Campaigns of Dove

In 2006, Dove started the Dove Self-Esteem Fund. According to dove philippines [], the advertisement purports the brand as "an agent of change to educate and inspire girls on a wider definition of beauty and to make them feel more confident about themselves". To this end, Dove have created a number of largely online-only short films, including Daughters (which also aired in a 75-second spot during the Super Bowl XL), Evolution (which won two awards at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival), Onslaught, and Amy.
