More Than Just a Cream

by Pegasus for Thornton & Ross

Summary of work

More Than Just a Cream

The OTC emollient market is highly competitive with seemingly little difference between products. That was the challenge ahead for Cetraben at the start of 2015. Having acquired the brand in late 2014, Thornton & Ross decided to make the product range available over-the-counter, building on its Rx heritage as a widely-prescribed brand. Great success was achieved by focusing beyond the cream. We took the bold step to help first, sell later, creating an emotional connection with our target audience by acting as a caring, authoritative brand that is genuinely helping to improve the lives of people with problematic skin. Using a creative activation theme of Improve your SKIN-telligence, we launched a creative, insightful and integrated campaign that positioned Cetraben as an enabler brand. Our multidiscipline campaign, encompassing social, PR and digital, helped make Cetraben the fastest growing brand in its market for two consecutive years, outperforming all competitors by some margin to achieve sales that far exceeded targets.
