People these days are constantly struggling to reach the high standards that fashion and modern advertising impose to as e perfection. They are hating every single wrinkle or frizzy and curly hair.
On the other hand, Dove has a different campaign. This campaign includes real women with their own bodies.

The cosmetic brand Dove was founded by Lever Brothers in 1957. They produced the original ‘Beauty bar’ and they claimed that this products is ‘much better for your skin’ than other soaps.
They created a logo that is still on their products ‘’ bird silhouette’’.
Two decades later, Dove promoted inner beauty. In 1991 low alkaline soap was started known as ‘Litmus tests’. Dove started to produce shampoos, cleansers, body lotions, deodorants and face and hand care.
